Top Positive Review
I’m really enjoying this paper! I use it mostly for watercolors. Its weight prevents bleeding through to the backside, which is fantastic. It’s durable and withstands multiple layers/applications of paint and water.
It doesn’t absorb the water immediately, which is great, since I really love that drippy, splattery look.
The water does make the paper bend and curl, but I’ve found using a steam iron with the paper in between a bed sheet makes most of the wrinkles, at least the prominent ones, disappear.
Will definitely keep buying!
Top Critical Review
It’s a great sketchbook with really thick paper great for copic and prismacolor markers. It takes quite a while before ink actually bleeds through to the another piece of paper. However, my only complaint is that the perforations are way too perforated(?). The paper really easily rips off, when I’m flipping through the pages, if I blend the perforations even slightly by accident, almost half of the sheet of paper comes off!
This is really annoying considering I want to keep most of my works inside my sketchbook.
But other than that, it’s a really nice, high quality paper with a good grit. Wished it came with more paper though, I’m almost done with mine!
Customer Questions & Answers
can you use an airbruse on this paper?
Answer: My experience has been limited to watercolor which causes irregular highs and lows in the paper. It does not seem to be 140 lb but that is what is advertised. If your paints are liquid I would think unless used lightly it would not be of any real value.
What is the length and width of the book, including the spiral binding? Trying to find a drawing pad for a very specific size carry-on bag.
Answer: The length is 10″ and the width including spiral binding is 8 1/4″ and the thickness of the pad including spiral binding 3/4″. Respond back if you have any further questions.
Could i use gesso first and then apply oil paint onto pages??
Answer: I know some watercolor artists put 2 thinned layers of gesso down. I know gouache works really well. In my own experience I’ve used acrylics and thinned out oils. It holds up, but nowhere near as well as canvas. Using gesso and oils? I’ve never tried.
