Top Positive Review
I bought pads from a few different brands in the same price range to see if what I was using (Canson XL) was best (Arches is out of my price range, sadly). Pros: this paper is noticeably whiter than any other I??ve seen. The texture is a cold-press-style dimple on the front of each sheet, but interestingly the back is hot-press-style smooth. That makes it a great practice pad IMO, since both textures yield different results. However, if you are using watercolor, this paper does NOT perform well when lifting color. It can take a few swipes with a soft brush, but that??s it ?? either a firm brush or more than 3-4 swipes starts lifting the paper as well (I found this to be the case with Strathmore, too, but not as bad as this one). Bee has a great price on 6×9 paper, but for inexpensive larger pads, Canson XL is still coming out on top.
Top Critical Review
This paper is 246 lb. You’d think it would handle the paint after you laid the water. Not! After several passes of the brush, paper balls appeared. I thought it was my brush. Used several different brushes and they weren’t the cause, it was the paper. You’d have to use a tweezer to pull the balls off the paper. Tested the wet on dry and the balls appeared again. Did several passes with a maker and it was fine but it bled. The acrylic paint is fine. I don’t have oil paint to test. The back side of the paper is smooth and worked with watercolor but buckles just as if you were painting on a 140 lb paper.
Customer Questions & Answers
Is this pre-gessoed?
Answer: No. It is a rather slick water color paper . At least t hat is the way I used it. I have no t tried it for acrylic or oil.
Ok for sharpie? Would it bleed thtough?
Answer: This is a very heavy paper (246 lb.). I have yet to paint on it, but I have used permanent markers (black, red, and green) on 140 lb paper and they do not bleed through, so doubt very much they would bleed through this paper.
Do any of you acrualmy have luck with water on this paper? I sure didnt, even with just a tiny tiny dampness the paper balls up
Same. Tried a couple different things- watercolor, Derwent inktense (blocks and pencils) brush tip markers, different kinds of brushes, smaller amounts of water – but even just a little water or paint made the paper ripple and start to bead up. Colors became muddy even with a light wash.
Works okay for dry media.??
