Winsor & Newton Pigment Marker Pads
Paper is to markers what canvas is to paint and marker performance depends on the quality of the surface used and its absorbency.
To achieve the ultimate blending we recommend using the Winsor & Newton Pigment Marker Paper, however the Pigment Marker also works nicely on other smooth surfaces like primed canvas - a smooth surface is important so as to no damage the nibs.

The papers I have tried with my Pigment markers are:
Borden & Riley rag marker paper - grainy texture, no blending, slight streaking
Bienfang rag marker paper - grainy texture, no blending, slight streaking
Canson bleedproof marker paper - light grain texture, some blending, minimal streaking, blends well on the back
Border & Riley Pen & Ink paper - semi thirsty paper, some streaking, some blending when wet, super fun transparent vibrant layering on the back but no blending
Strathmore 300 series bristol - too absorbent
Fluid Watercolor cold press paper - very absorbent, dry marks will not lay well, minimal 'soft' streaking, no blending
Yupo - Excellent blending, vibrant colors, lots of 'soft' puddle streaking, colors easily lift, difficult to layer
Those are the papers I tried. W&N solves a few problems the other papers have. Markers blend extremely well, not as well as Yupo but IMO that is an advantage. On W&N if the paint is allowed to dry you can get a few layers down without disturbing the colors underneath. Colors lift easily on Yupo, you need to be gentle when layering. Gradients are streaky on Yupo and difficult to blend.
The problem this paper doesn't solve is the streaky texture of the markers. The streaky look can be reduced by using the white blender or wiping up extra color with a lint free rag. They smooth out the colors creating a painterly effect. Absorbent papers don't streak but they are too 'thirsty', the nibs dry out quickly.
Colors were the most vibrant on the Yupo paper. The W&N paper isn't as reflective so the colors where not as 'electric'. The rag papers were too absorbent so the colors were darker. On the back side of the canson paper the markers where lighter in color.
While this is a nice paper I prefer the Canson. The streaky appearance of the markers was much softer and the markers blended just as well. I did noticed the white marker is very aggressive on the canson paper and pulls the color up quickly making gradients a little more difficult to achieve.
If you are already using a bleedproof marker paper and are wondering if you need this paper, I would say you may get more vibrant colors and a more uniform blend with the white marker on this paper.
I personally don't like the streaking effect and that is basis for my rating.
This product was not made for other mediums and this part of the review does not effect my rating, I am just sharing my findings.
I tested Prismas, Copics and Faber Castell Pitt pens on this paper. I found the front surface decreases drying time for dye based markers which is super handy if you like to use blenders or build gradients between several colors. Hours later blenders can still be used, but the dye will stain the paper so it's not possible to pull all the color off the paper. This paper has advantages in blending that I haven't experienced with my other papers. Usually I have to plan my blends ahead and when everything is set in motion move quickly. Hesitation or areas that are too large will set and blenders will be useless.
Colors are vibrant. The paper is a nice white, not cool or yellow in tone. It is more opaque then the other marker papers I own, which I like.
There are a few downsides. The paper is not bleed proof for dye based markers. When using dye markers 'pore' like patterns become visible and act as osmosis points, transporting color to surfaces underneath. Color will fill the pores creating super saturated dark specks. The Markers streak when blended, streaks can be softened with a q-tip or a lint free rag, but just be aware it doesn't matter if you use Copic, Prisma or a Pitt marker, they will streak.
On the back side this paper works similar to other brands of marker paper. Colors are more vibrant when compared to the other papers I own. Unfortunately blending is very difficult as the back side is more absorbent. More tests are needed to see if some colors will bleed or create 'halos' so I wouldn't buy this paper to use the back side unless you are willing to accept it might not work out.
Overall this is an interesting paper for dye based markers too. The freckle effect creates a fun texture that I can live with (silly of me I realize). I need to do more testing but I have a feeling this paper will preform similar to the canson bleed proof paper with the advantage of being more vibrant and more opaque.
