Millford Watercolour Paper
Millford is the newest watercolour paper developed by St Cuthberts Mill. It is styled on the discontinued Whatman™ watercolour paper, after artists grieved the loss of this unique type of watercolour paper.
It is mould made from 100% cotton (just like the original Whatman™), and its superb surface is created using natural woollen felts. It is deliberately created to have a high resistance to water, so it’s washes perform very differently to traditional watercolour papers.
Millford sees the welcome return of a much loved style of watercolour paper.

Extract from Barry Herniman's review of Millford "...the paint sits beautifully on the surface. Because it is a hard sized paper the amount of paint absorbed is less than that of other softer sized papers and I find that leaves the pigments retain more of their glow when dry."
