ARCHES® Lavis Fidelis / En-Tout-Cas

One particularity:

this paper has two different sides, cold pressed on the top for watercolours, hot pressed on the back for drawing.

Made on a cylinder mould (traditional process) : quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. 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, with a flatter surface and better wet strength and stability, giving the artist more control. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.
