Arches released a new product a few years ago just for oil painters: Arches Oil Paper! Sized for oils and ready to go, Arches Oil Paper is an indispensable surface for anyone dabbling or proficient in oil painting. It takes well to oil pastels, too. Pads come in 9″x12″ or 12″x16″ sizes, with 12 sheets per pad. I’ve added two sizes of pads to the online shop. I like to tape them down to a piece of foam-core that is slightly larger than the paper. It is also very convenient to be able to cut or rip the Arches Oil Paper into smaller “tester” sized pieces. The paper is available in 22″x30″ sheets as well – special order only at this time.
