Product Features

  • Just-Right Texture: Not too rough. Not too smooth. Your Arteza painting paper has a cold-pressed surface slightly textured or "toothy" so it's ideal for large, even washes & for finer detail, too.
  • Value 2-Pack: Many watercolor sketchbooks offer just 12 sheets max. But your Arteza set gives you two 9"x12" pads 64 sheets in all (32 in each) so you can play with techniques & effects to your heart's content.
  • Premium Paper, Affordably Priced: Why spend a fortune? Your Arteza watercolor paper is thicker & heavier (140 lb./300gsm), so it can stand up to multiple washes without warping or bleeding through.
