Made on a cylinder mould (traditional process), the slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is homogeneous and has very good dimensional stability. When printing, the job of positioning the humidified paper is much easier and the paper can easily withstand repeated passages through the press. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.
For use with pencil, pastel, charcoal, sanguine crayon, felt pen, lithography, intaglio engraving, relief printing, linocut, letterpress, screen-printing, blind embossing, hot-foil stamping, bookbinding, and collotype printing.
Pronounced fine grain: ideal for academic drawing. Allows the artist to play with the surface, to obtain relief effects. It is easily erasable without leaving marks or linting.
Lightly sized: ideal for printing, Velin d’ARCHES® paper is greatly appreciated by art publishers for its “love” of ink.
With alkaline reserve, acid-free, no optical brightening agents (permanent in accordance with ISO 9706)
