Moulin du Roy Sheet 300 g/m² cold pressed
Moulin du Roy® is a watercolour paper that is manufactured on a cylinder mould. This gives the paper a uniform surface, at the same time as a perfectly natural appearing texture. It's 100% cotton composition makes it both strong and highly absorbent. Its core and surface sizing allows an even pigment distribution that maintains its vibrancy and transparency. Moulin du Roy® is easy to correct (very good touch-up) and is naturally white, acid free and free from optical brightness additives for optimal preservation.
The sheets feature four deckle edges and a watermark, which guarantees their traditional manufacturing. With the larger formats, it is advised to stretch them on a piece of card, a board or a frame using tape or pins.
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.
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.
