Canson L'Aquarelle Heritage Paper

Paper is 12x18 CP paints are Canson L'Aquarelle Paper shows a distinct border approx.2" along side an about 1" along top and bottom when wet .
When dry not so noticeable but still there .Is it me or the paper?.
Not very good but it keeps me from chasing cats.

Re: Canson Heritage Paper

Canson brands are often student-grade and not of especially good quality, IMO, but even student-grade paper should have those lines around the perimeter.

It appears something happened to change the perimeter of the paper from the center. Is the paper new, or old? How was it stored?

Sling paint,
Virgil

Re: Canson L'Aquarelle Heritage Paper

Virgil, This is Canson's top of the line paper, 100% cotton.

I normally do not like Canson papers, but I was given a block of the L'Aquarelle Heritage kind and I am enjoying it as much as any of the other artist grade papers I use, i.e. Fabriano, Arches, Saunders Waterford, etc.

I have not experienced the problem you found in your paper, Cliff. I wonder if it was damaged in storage before you got it????

Sylvia

Re: Canson L'Aquarelle Heritage Paper

Thanks Sylvia.

The problem area is so symmetrical around the edges of the paper...makes it look like the edges got wet, stayed wet for a time, and perhaps the sizing around the perimeter deteriorated...

Is this the first sheet you have used? Any other paintings with similar effects?

Can you return it to place of purchase? Or try contacting Canson and ask for a new block?

Sling paint,
Virgil

Re: Canson L'Aquarelle Heritage Paper

I love the Canson Heritage block paper, but dislike the sheet. BTW, I've noticed that other brands differ with block and sheet paper quality.

Re: Canson L'Aquarelle Heritage Paper

It was third sheet. I split the block in half and did a light wash on top sheet of bottom half an all seemed fine will use top half from bottom up till run into problem.

Beside all that had a reply from Cason told them about splitting block and results, They are going to replace block anyway. Really appreciate it.

They definitely have my vote for customer service

Smile Re: Canson L'Aquarelle Heritage Paper

Canson Heritage is a top quality paper IMO and it's comparable to other premium papers like FabArt and Arches. However, Heritage is now made by Saunders........

Here is my unfinished painting using Canson Heritage and W&N paint for your reference, I found this paper's sizing very nice and it gives excellent feedback on my washes.
