Product Description

Size:7"X10"

Canson XL Mix Media Pads were developed as the answer to the demand for a heavyweight, fine texture paper with heavy sizing for wet and dry media. This paper can be used for: sketching, drawing, light washes of ink and watercolor, collage, journaling, and more. It has quickly become the most popular paper in the Canson paper family. Mix Media paper erases well and blends easily. The wire bound pads have micro perforated, true size sheets. These pads were developed in consultation with art professors and combine performance with value for the art student. These pads contain 60 sheets of 98lb / 160g acid free 7"X10" paper.

This mixed media paper is amazing. It absorbs water but will curl if you put too much water on it. You can't scrub it too much but you can scrub it more than other papers. It is fairly smooth paper and one side is perforated so you can remove the sheets. Sometimes it is a little tricky to get the paper out without tearing it so use care. The paper is about as thick as a thinner cardstock. Some markers show through like Copics and Sharpies. It lays flat because of the spiral binding. The paper is slightly more ivory colored than your standard white copy paper.

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!

I've been using this sketchbook for a while now before I purchased it here. I filled up my old one, so I wanted to get another. I couldn't remember what store I had bought it at, and no where seemed to carry this size & brand together. Anyway, this was exactly the one I was looking for. I love the 7x10 size of this sketchbook; for me, it's plenty of size to work in and write in without being cramped but also without feeling like I'm trying to fill all this extra space. It's not too bulky and the paper, binding, and cover have held up very well over the months I've been carrying it with me all over. Paper quality is nice. Not too smooth or rough, great for dry media. I haven't tried it with much wet media so I'm not sure how it holds up with that. I agree with other reviewers that have said it is somewhat hard to get a clean tear from the perforation, but I don't remove pages from my sketchbooks much so that didn't bother me.

Overall, I love this sketchbook! I'm always recommending it to other art students! (:

It's a decent paper, but a bit lightweight for mixed media at only 98 pounds. Does not handle water as well as I would expect mixed media paper to. Strathmore makes a mixed media paper at 140 pounds which does great with watercolor. Canson also makes 150 pound "fanboy" illustration paper that take water with no issue. This paper takes ink great though there still is some bleed I've found. I've found myself using this for layout sketches and quick washes and do final pieces on heavier papers.

I spent forever checking at art shops and online to find the right journal for a class I'm doing - I wanted it to be big enough to paint/draw/glue/etc. in, but not too bit to carry easily.

The weight of the paper is enough that it'll probably take the watercolor well, as long as I don't get too wash-y, and certainly enough for pens, with just enough texture to make it feel good without being distracting.

The spiral binding makes it easy to keep open to the page I'm working on, and the pages could easily pull out where they are perforated, but also stay in nicely.

I'm so glad I picked this journal/pad.

This is a highly functional journal unless you want to use water. I thought it was an issue of my using too much water but even when I used just a little the paper warped. My disappointment stems from the fact that I love the Canson sketchbooks and use them regularly so I had really high hopes for this. Works very well with pastels and stamps, warps slightly with acrylics. Would definitely purchase just for pastel work!

Got this so I could do marker work. Very smooth paper which is great for inking with a nib. I haven't tried watercolors on it yet, but the paper holds up pretty well against acrylics.

Others have extolled the virtues of this paper -- I agree.

BUT I want to make something clear others really have not. This is not water color paper. Heavy water color washes or lots of spray inks make this paper unhappy. This is mostly due to the weight of the paper. It will buckle, ripple, and even pill. Multi-media paper is a trend and not a traditional paper designation. Do not be fooled into thinking this will successfully handle all media.

It is also important to consider using both sides of this paper. Personally I do not. My artist journals are mostly collage but I'll use anything else you can probably think of along with that. I suggest you experiment before you put together a journal with this paper. Since the plain white surface on the reverse is soooo boring I'll do a light water color wash, light spray inks, or a coordinating piece of scrapbook or art paper.

No one paper is perfect for everything. Ask any experienced artist or go to your local real art store (not Michaels). For the price and the utility Canson produces a good compromise.
