Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolor Blocks
Redesigned and better than ever. The block’s paper fibres are cotton, longer, stronger and perfectly absorbent. The length and quality of the cotton fibres gives the paper its luxury feel and result in superior strength and durability making these the superior choice for the finest of artworks.
Formed in a cylinder mould, gives the appearance of being handmade. This cold-pressed block has a medium grain and which produces the brightest watercolour paintings because the increased surface area reflects more light.
Designed to withstand saturation, the gummed block keeps the paper stretched as they dry. The finished piece can then be removed, free from any cockling. That’s right, this paper will not warp, wave or cockle even when saturated with large volumes of water. Multiple layers of paint can therefore be applied to create more depth.
These 100% cotton blocks are gummed on all four sides, removing the need to wet and tape sheets down when painting outdoors or in the studio. Each sheet can be removed easily by using a palette knife or an old credit card.
