Great Paper for Acrylic Paint
By Shirley Locke
from Savannah, GA
Comments about Canson Montval Acrylic Paper:
Basically, this paper is exactly as advertised. The pad comes with ten pieces of thick, sturdy stock which handle the acrylic very well. Sometimes my art professors have said that Bristol board is good for acrylic, but it really doesn't match the quality of this paper that was made for acrylic.I haven't regretted buying a single Canson product so far.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would buy this again.
By Pretty Pot, Etc.
I used this brand acrylic paper for a painting I was commissioned to do. I was very pleased with the quality. I was especially pleased that there was minimal curling at the edges with the heavy amount of paint I used. I was able to apply and blend paint on this paper with ease. Heavy weight and good quality.
This is wonderful paper, and I am really disappointed it is not carried in the Blick stores anymore. Only available online.

Nice product, sweet results
By PA art
from New Market, MD
I have started using this product for acrylic sketches and studies for more complete paintings. My first acrylic drawing with just black paint was love at first try. My brush glided across the surface and gave me the most interesting textures and value. I finished with the most amazing study. I have since ordered different sizes.

This is lovely paper for acrylic painting. The surface takes the paint beautifully. It is absorbant and keeps down the drip factor. Extra thick paper is a pleasure to work on.

Great for watercolor
from Palmyram NJ
I started using this paper for my watercolors as well as pen and ink with watercolor washes. I love the fact that it doesn't buckle and my brushes glide across the paper. When it comes to wet on wet, it does require a bit more water since the paper is very absorbent.

Superior quality paper for multimedia
By Lindley Karstens
from Desert Hot Springs, CA
If you're doing multi-media and need a substrate that is relatively inexpensive and yet sturdy, this is your go-to item. The website has had it listed incorrectly for some time now. The Montval is a 185 lbs. This is the heaviest "paper" I've found.

I love this paper!
Since discovering this paper I have used no other with my acrylic painting. The weight is good enough that even if I am practicing and use a whole sheet, I can re-cover the sheet with a background and use it for a project without wasting that piece of paper. Also, I use a lot of water and this holds up nicely.

Great stuff !!!!!!!!!!!!
By Susan B.
from North Carolina
This is a wonderful product. Before using it I put one coat of gesso on each side. It works well for both quick studies and for finished paintings. It has a slightly textured surface and is thick enough that it doesn't buckle. Great stuff !!!
