Arches Platine was the first paper produced specifically for Platinum printing, and all other handcoated photo processes. Platine is a heavy (310gsm) natural colored paper, without brighteners. Externally sized, Platine is very easy to coat with a brush, and its hard smooth surface produces incredibly deep, rich tones. Each sheet has one natural deckled edge and three cut edges. Approximately 1/4 of the sheets have the Arches Platine watermark.
