Bockingford is a beautiful English watercolour paper. This is a high quality paper made using pure materials to archival standards. Its attractive surface is created using natural woollen felts that give it a distinctive random texture. Appreciated for its excellent colour lifting abilities. This is an extremely forgiving watercolour paper valued by professional and amateur artists around the world. It has a cold pressed surface which is slightly textured, and is not suitable for extremely detailed work. Most painters will find it suitable for most purposes.

In addition to watercolour the paper accepts pastel, gouache, acrylic, pencil, charcoal and pen & ink. The paper can also be used for certain print techniques.
