Bockingford 140lb, acid free, watercolour paper in 1/2 imperial size is usually the preferred choice for the watercolours. Occasionally, larger paper will be used when needed - for example for a long, thin composition. Depending on the composition, the finished framed watercolour measures approximately 60 x 50 cm.
Two types of frames are generally used:
1. Traditional Solid Oak Frame
2. Solid Oak Frame with Slip in Box
With this more contemporary style frame, the oak frame is plain and the glass is separated from touching the mount by a slip.
