Canson® Héritage is produced on a cylinder-mould machine using the traditional process of papermakers. It features an exceptional and sensual texture. It is made with 100% cotton fibres, a traditional material which gives a high absorption capacity.
It has a pure white colour that favours contrasts and details with exceptional precision. With Canson® Héritage, washes are homogeneous and pigments do not accumulate and the colours remain vivid and do not fade during drying.
Its working time is excellent, so the artist can take their time complete the artwork. It is resistant to scraping and it is easy to make corrections whether the paper is wet or dry, allowing the artist to try new creative approaches.
"Sur le mouillé, Canson® Héritage fait des effets top et sur le sec j’arrive à travailler une netteté impeccable."
