Top Positive Review
I bought this paper for my creative 10 & 11 year olds so they would stop asking for my artist paper & canvases when their media didn??t hold up on the papers they had. This paper is perfect for that. Kids notice the paper feels smooth & ??fancy??. I tested it out myself because it looked like it could be a good general practice paper. 11 year old saw my tester paper squiggles & was impressed with how it held up to everything.
There was no feathering with any media I tried.
Crayola Markers – great, I can even get blends. No bleeding through.
Watercolor – blends well, buckles but much less than you??d expect, doesn??t soak through, not really for adults or teens looking to improve watercolor skills. Could be ok for quick work for an artist looking to get their idea down but has lots of other practice.
Gel Pens – good, no indents. Smears but doesn??t take super long to dry.
Microns – very good, no indents & almost no wait time for smudge free work.
Acrylic/latex – holds a single layer decently, kind of like the water color, works for general creativity but not an artist honing their skills.
Alcohol Markers – did not blend well & excessively soaked up. Wouldn??t recommend. The 11 year old was even able to pick out that was the only thing that didn??t work well on the paper.
Crayon, Oil Pastel & Chalk – good, you can see the paper surface but it??s still smooth
Graphite Pencils (artist grade) – good, laid down smooth and decent blend. I don??t have charcoal but suspect they would be good since the chalk did fine too.
I will definitely buy this paper again for the kids and might find uses for it myself.
Top Critical Review
Bought this for my artist daughter who uses water colors, acrylic, markers etc. The paper bleeds for markers. Soaks up the water from water colors, and wrinkles up the paper when acrylic paints are applied. How can this possibly be sold as mix-media paper? The paper weighs more than standard copy paper but feels lighter and thinner than the leading brands of mixed media art pads. Will not recommend for ‘wet’ paint. Suitable for color pencils, crayons and charcoal drawing.
