The new, 100% handmade Artway® Cotton-Rag paper packs are a fantastic addition to our Indigo handmade range. Each pack, being handmade, is entirely unique in tone and grain, though overall the paper is a mid-rough texture and a heavyweight 250gsm. For a unique and beautiful surface for your creative ideas, these paper packs are unmatched.
Suitable for watercolour, and all painting uses, as well as all dry and soft media - for oil painting, the surface will need to be prepared with gesso. Each sheet is individually handmade and features a fully deckled edge.
Created entirely by local artisans in Northern India using traditional paper-making methods, and available in a range of paper sizes from A1 to A5, (natural variations in paper size and shape will occur between sheets due to the handmade nature of the product), the Indigo Handmade Cotton-Rag paper comes in packs wrapped in recycled paper. It is also 100% acid-free with a neutral pH and internally gelatine sized.
Being handmade results in a paper with no real discernible grain direction. Some extremely faint marks might be discernible on one side of the paper (imprinted from the screen mesh) however there is no front and back to the surfaces. Each sheet is totally unique
