Welcome to dickblick
Make your artist journal as distinctive as your artwork! Bee Creative Mixed Media Books have sturdy black chipboard covers that can be decorated to suit your personality or your interests.
Each book holds 50 sheets of acid-free, 93 lb (150 gsm) paper with a natural white color and excellent structure for mixed media. The paper features two distinct surfaces — cold press for dry media on one side, and a smoother hot press surface on the other side for pen-and-ink and mixed media. The pages are micro-perforated for easy removal.
A double wire binding creates a flat working area, allowing artists to create across two pages. The extra heavyweight front and back covers are 100% recycled and provide a stable surface for field work.

Nice Set-Up but not Not for Watercolours
By Biking Gal
from BC Canada
Comments about Bee Paper Bee Creative Mixed Media Book:
Love the size of these and the sturdy cover. Pages that are thick that don't warp. Great for backpacking.However I found that this paper absorbs water then pills. I'd recommend only using a light wash then not reworking it. Was hoping it would work as a water colour sketch book and paid extra for that feature.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Does the job and folds flat
from Milton FL
I have been using multi media paper for a couple of years now so I can experiment with pencil, gouache, acrylic, ink, etc. and not have to keep too many notebooks. This feels more "papery" than most multi media papers and did not bleed through with acrylic. It is not "great" for pencil or charcoal, but it is very good for trying ideas or using as a sketch to be inked in or painted over. Also the pages are perforated so a good drawing / painting can be taken out and framed. I've been able to do a drawing a grisaille and final painting all on the same page with this!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Color me... Impressed
from Lynchburg, VA
I can't say enough about this paper. It is truly best in class and some serious extras! Here are the pros:1. Truly quality paper that has 2 different types in each sheet! Yes you can let your mood dictate the tools you use and not worry about the pad you have. 2. A vellum sheet protector so that no matter how heavy the application you will not bleed through and waste the next sheet. 3. Micro-perforated for those who like to frame their work. 4. Hard Cover and and backing for a stable writing surface. CONS: It is more expensive but WELL worth the money!
A really good mixed media sketchbook
It took acrylic and watercolor paint well enough for a sketchbook, and the paper is really thick. It's perfect for someone who experiments with a lot of different mediums in their sketchbook. I've only noticed alcohol based markers bleed through the page, but those tend to bleed through almost anything.
Sturdy Pleasant Mixed Media Book

This is a great Media Drawing book and I'm very pleased to have bought it. It is sturdy, pleasant to hold and draw on. Overall it's a good value for the price. I'll probably buy this again.

It is unique to have two different textures in one pad, and both are wonderful to work with.
