I found this product because I'm tired of buying giant water color papers that don't fit most standard printers, or having to cut them down to size in small sad packs of 12 for $32 . Not with these! They blend both cost efficiency with supreme quality!
I love one of the mainstream papers too (hint: it's not cason) but it seems water color paper either comes really small or really large. This size is just right, although I wouldn't complain if they made some standard 8x11 sizes.
This paper is great for beginners and intermediate levels, but can be finicky with embellishments before completely dry or if overdone (gel pens).
This paper is not only budget efficient but of much higher quality than many store brands. The cotton grain and way the paper was processed make it a joy to work with. It can take a lot of water abuse without warping, and the taping down is still needed to an extent but nothing like other paper, and it doesn't start to come apart if you really want to do some hard detailing! It's basically backless canvas, and it takes color in such a unique limitless way, so don't be afraid to layer. This is a case of you get much more than you pay for!
On the attached picture I used water pencils (the grain will be rough on your set, but if you use water color pencils it's nothing new to you), and liquid water color and both worked wonderfully. Best for intermediate students, and works fine with ink jet printers for doing digital stamping.Read more ›
The rigidness and water handling capability is in no doubt, but I took off 2 stars to indicate that it has quite a different paint handling characteristic than heavier watercolor papers. It dries much faster and WILL leave an obvious edge/streak if your brushes are not loaded with water. With some staining paints (Pthalo blue, Pthalo green etc.), this edge is not easy to remove and will cause problems if you do not intend it. If you usually paint on dry and likes to push the paint around later with a clean brush, then this is definitely going to annoy you.
Also what I notice is that the paper is coated with something that slows the drying process, which is good if you don't want anything to dry instantly, but it hinders the absorption of water into paper, which will leave a huge puddle of water if you loaded your brush a little too much. This causes a dilemma in conjunction with the aforementioned quick drying characteristic, in that you have to carefully control the wetness of your brush to reach the optimal painting stroke. It is more like a challenge to experienced artists than a forgiving practice medium for beginners.
Thus, rather than using the cheapest available papers so that beginners don't waste money throwing out failed work, I seriously suggest using at least 140 lb paper to start. They are not that expensive and are much more forgiving to beginners. Beginners then can focus on the creative process itself and not worry about technical details.
and there are 50 sheets so you feel like you have a lot tot practice which makes me happy.
