I am going on a course and need to buy the following- Saunders Waterford or Arches, rough surface 140lb+ in sketch blocks suggest size up to 15”x22. Could you tell me exactly which paper this is please.
15x22” (is ½ imperial paper. Watercolour sheets are traditionally made in imperial sizes Full Imperial 22x30” (560x760mm) and then either cut to half ½ imperial 22x15” (560mm x 380mm) or quarters – ¼ imperial 11x15” (280x380mm).
Blocks are pads which are glued on all four sides which help reduce any cockling of the paper when wet.
If you are looking for a block in ½ imperial, then these are your nearest options:
Saunders Waterford 300gsm (140lb) Block
Rough Not or Hot Pressed
Not Surface 20x14” (51x35cm)
Rough Surface 20x14” (51x35cm)
Hot pressed 20x14” (51x35cm)
We make a ½ imperial 300gsm Saunders Waterford Rough block for Hazel Soan
Arches 300gsm (140lb) Block
The largest we do is 310 x 410mm
½ imperial papers are available in loose sheets
I hope this helps
do you send to the netherlands?
Ther are certain items we cannot ship overseas due to hazardous components. There are also some products which we can ship but we will have to use a different carrier and often light and large items can cost more that the cost of the item to send. Therefore, we say these cannot be sent overseas.
You can contact us, and we can calculate the cost of carriage to see if you feel that you would like us to ship the item.
