Canson® Moulin du Roy® is a watercolour paper produced on a traditional cylinder mould machine, it has the look and feel of a handmade paper. Its 100% cotton quality gives it both ideal absorbency and superior strength.
Internal and surface sizing permit the lifting of dried colour and the opportunity to refine and rework the watercolour, pigments are brighter.
Naturally white, acid free and made entirely without bleaching agents, for an optimal conservation over time.
The four side glued pad keeps the paper perfectly taut, even when wet. An unbound space at the corner of the block allows a blade to be passed through to detach the sheet when finished. Ready to use and ideal for beginners, it makes work outside as easy as in the studio.
Weight or thickness
300 GSM // 10 Sheets - 300 g/m² is the most classic weight (not too fine, not too thick). It resists tearing that may sometimes occur with more lightweight papers. The amount of water is easier to measure when using papers of a superior weight. It is a well-balanced option when all of the subtleties of watercolour have not yet been mastered.
Colours and textures
Cold pressed grain - The cold pressed paper allows relief effects at the same time as a highly delicate finish. The lightly grained texture reflects light well, preserving the transparent qualities of the watercolour. It is the easiest surface to work on.
