Bockingford Papers are made by St Cuthberts Mill who produces one of the UK's most popular and affordable Watercolour Papers. St Cuthberts Mill based in Somerset, England, has been making paper since the 1700’s making them an expert in the field. They now specialise in the manufacture of high quality fine art papers for watercolour painting and printmaking. Bockingford Watercolour Papers are made by highly skilled papermakers using one of the remaining cylinder mould machines in the world. Bockingford Paper is made using sustainably sourced pulps and naturally filtered water from the River Axe. Bockingford’s trademark random texture is achieved by pressing real woollen felts into the paper surface. Bockingford Watercolour Papers are mould made, acid free and archival, making Bockingford a stable affordable Watercolour Paper with excellent colour lifting capability. This means that you are able to lift paint colour easily to get back to a white paper base. The Paper is also internally sized to prevent colour and water seeping through. Bockingford Watercolour Paper is suitable for gouache, acrylics, pastels, printing and pen and ink as well as watercolour.
