Classic Water Color Paper
Saunders Waterford is St Cuthbert’s top quality watercolour paper. This paper proudly carries the Royal Watercolour Society's endorsement.


Saunders Waterford is an exquisite top quality professional art paper. It is mould made from 100% cotton to high archival standards. Each sheet is buffered with calcium carbonate to help defend finished pieces of work from discolouration caused by acids present in pollution. The surface is also gelatin coated making it strong and resilient to scrubbing and rough treatment.

The paper is available in two shades, ‘White’ and ‘High White’. Its attractive surface is created using natural woolen felts that give it a distinctive random texture.

The paper is suitable for water colour, gouache, acrylic pastel, pen & ink, pencil and charcoal


Available in 3 surface:

Hot Pressed - Ideal for delicate brushwork and illustration, this is the smoothest surface available and is also excellent for pen and wash work.

Cold Pressed (NOT) - A medium surface and the most versatile,in between Hot Pressed and Rough.
{CP or NOT Hot Pressed are terms to describe the same surface finish in different parts of the world}

Rough - Highly textured surface superb for adding effects to landscape and seascape paintings

 
 
Blocks: Saunders Waterford papers are also available in blocks of 300 g/m² (140lb) water colour papers in HP – Hot Pressed, CP Cold Pressed or Not Hot Pressed (NOT) and Rough surfaces.

Each block is glued on all 4 edges, keeping the paper tight when you apply a wash. When using a block you do not need to go through the process of soaking and stretching the sheet as the block does this for you, and the paper dries flat.

Blocks are excellent for painting on location. Once the finished painting is dry, you remove the sheet by carefully placing a blunt paper knife in the small unglued area in the spine, carefully sliding the knife around the block.

Each block contains 20 sheets of 300g/m² Saunders Waterford paper.
