Top Positive Review
I was seeking a paper that would allow my daughter, who uses oils, pastels, watercolors and watercolor pencils, to have a versatile medium for her creations. These pads of paper were perfect and hold all paint and pencil sources well! She uses them for everything from acrylic painting to pencil sketches! The only downfall is that the price was perfect but I would have loved to have the paper be a bigger size- but we can order that next time. Just make sure you read that they are not 8.5 x 11 size- I didn’t read as carefully and missed that.
Top Critical Review
The paper on the two tablets I received is light lavender-gray; watercolorists note that your ground will not be pure white. The texture is subtle, drybrush strokes with watercolor did not show much grain. The paper doesn’t buckle much even with a sloppy wet wash. It does get fuzzy when wet. All that said, I ain’t nothing much at watercolor painting. Acrylic paint goes on surprisingly well; there’s just enough tooth to get a good brushstroke. The raw paper doesn’t seem to suck the moisture out of the paint quickly as some other papers do. Gesso doesn’t cause much buckling (I tested with Liquitex transparent gesso). The raw paper will pull oil out of oil paint, of course — after a few minutes I could see a thin “halo” around a bare brushstroke. Conte crayon plays well with the paper. Pastels… is it just me, or is the color hard to blend on this surface? Maybe the same softness which allows the paper to flake up under watercolor also allows the oil pastel to “set” into the surface and resist blending? There again, not really my medium.
EDIT, later: After working more carefully with this paper, I cannot recommend it for any purpose. It’s too soft to be of much use unless each sheet is primed with gesso. For watercolor it is useless. I downgraded my rating to one star.
I bought these tablets for color-sketches while traveling (SMALL SIZE, which I wanted but which has taken others by surprise). I like the stiffness and durability of the paper, the reasonable cost, and the performance with acrylics and crayon. I like these for sketch work; I would not use these papers for finished artwork.
