Amylee views on Clairefontaine oil paper.
“Paper that is inspired by linen”
If I say “a surface for oil painting”, I guess that most of you will think “easel”, “stretched canvas” or “bulky material”?
But that was before … Today, artists are completely released!
In loose sheets or in blocks, the paper intended for oil painting is designed to cater to all desires. It is lighter, more economical, and more practical than stretched canvas, so it can be painted anywhere with less supporting materials. It attracts both students and professional artists!
White paper, slightly ivory
240gsm, medium fine linen texture, acid-free (pH neutral)
Special coating that limits absorption
Soft paper that does not curl
For all types of techniques: glazes, flat areas, impasto. It can also be used with water mixable oil colour.
Suitable for working outdoors
Available in packs of 10 loose sheets (50x65cm) or in a block glued on 4 sides in standard or panoramic format (10 or 15 sheets, in a choice of sizes).
