Millford paper

Millford watercolour paper is produced by St. Cuthberts paper mill as a replacement to the old 'Whatman' paper originally used by JMW turner. Turner’s impassioned, brisk, wet in wet methods, of creating watercolours were made feasible by using heavily sized linen papers made by Whatman after 1800. Turner’s way of working required a paper that could withstand a vast amount of abuse. Millford paper is designed with such methods of working in mind.

Millford paper is cotton based and hard-sized. The unique chemistry at the wet end of the mill’s mould machine is what gives the paper its finest qualities, without the need for adding any extra elements at the size press.

The fact that Millford is ‘hard-sized’ means that water/pigments will sit for much longer on the surface than softer sized papers. This will enable the user to play around with washes for a much greater length of time to create a myriad of exciting effects.

Millford is everything Whatman was and much more!

'Glyndebourne Picnic' 2016

We just had to share this fantastic illustration by artist Lyndsey Smith. Seeing the development of this illustration on Bockingford paper has been fascinating. As always, Lyndsey has included lots of little characters to spot! 

"I have always loved to draw and as my family have grown up I have been able to devote time to art. I exhibit my work at The Chalk Gallery Artist run gallery in Lewes, East Sussex and in several local exhibitions annually. I am kept busy with commissions and last year I was commissioned by Westminster Abbey to produce a Christmas card and Advent Calendar. 
Painting selected for the Royal Institute 200th exhibition at the Mall Galleries 2012.Runner up in The Bath Prize. Voted favourite painting at The Weald of Sussex Art Club exhibition 2015. Elected full member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art in 2016. Archaeology and local history are my other interests, I love to look above the shopfronts, see the old buildings and imagine what may have gone before."
