For oil painters who need a high-quality surface without the fuss and space requirements of a stretched canvas, we recommend Arches Oil Paper. Made from 100% cotton and prepared with a unique sizing and oil-barrier coat, Arches Oil Paper is ready to use without additional primer. That means you can start painting without clearing the room, setting up your easel, and committing to a large canvas.

As convenient as it is, Arches Oil Paper is still a luxurious and resilient surface. We tested it with a variety of oil colors, mediums, and mixed media techniques, and the paper didn't pill, tear, bleed, or buckle. In fact, you may find that the surface texture (similar to cold press watercolor paper) is more pleasant to paint on than the rougher surface of a canvas.

Twelve sheets per pad. Available in 9" x 12" and 12" x 16" sizes. Made in France.
