Introducing two very special papers now available at the Art Cellar...

Pescia Paper

Magnani Pescia is a wonderful printmaking paper with a creamy, smooth surface that tears and cuts remarkably well. It works well wet or dry, shrinks evenly and takes much abuse so it is equally suitable for hand or press printing. Great for intaglio techniques and monotypes.
It is 100% cotton and acid-free, with 4 deckle edges. Because it is very lightly sized, dampen it with an atomizer rather than soaking. The Pale Blue is a beautiful, unusual color for printmaking.


Arches Oil Paper

French made 300 gsm (140 lb), 4 deckled edge paper specially formulated for oil painting, yet it maintains the look and feel of traditional Arches papers. The paper features a powerful & efficient oil barrier that absorbs water, solvents, and binders evenly while allowing the paint and pigment to remain on the surface. It is ready to use - No need to gesso; no preparation required!
This new and revolutionary surface is essential for any professional oil painter looking to capture their oil painting on paper all while saving time. Professional Oil painters as well as Oil painting students will love the convenience and ease of use that this paper offers.
