A heavyweight paper with heavy internal and external sizing, Canson XL Mix Media paper can be used with acrylics and dry media, and for light washes. The fine-texture surface blends easily and erases well. Acid-free.

Your crazy to buy any other paper for studies/practice!
from Massanutten, VA
I had to review this ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT product because it is awesome & I see one negative review that requires attention. I'm using this paper for practice in mixed media (collage & acrylic paint) did i mention I PAINT on this paper and it holds up!!! Slight curling of edges after completely drying (not while painting), but gessoing both sides with Blick masters gesso (also a great product) greatly reduces/practically eliminates curling. It is not expensive 300lb water color paper, it is VERY inexpensive heavy weight 98lb QUALITY, mixed media paper. It preforms beautifully even when I apply water to my caran d'ache crayon marks! Originally, I started with the 18X24 pad, but since I try to paint daily this roll is such an excellent value its practically free! I've not used the entire roll yet since I just got it a few days ago, but even if the last couple yards are wrinkled/unusable it is still the best value around and I'll use that piece as a craft paper to protect my work surface! There is no other paper at 98lbs for such a low price, notta, nowhere, this is it and its great! Thanks again Blick, now I can 'practice' large scale painting without breaking the bank. 48"X10yds

Fast and affordable!

I was really happy to find this product at such a great price! I needed a huge quantity of it for a project and had to keep reordering. Delivery was always much faster than estimated and this particular product was almost half the price compared to an in store purchase!

you get what you pay for
from Tucson AZ
Got this roll and the last 3-4 yards were unusable because they were wrinkled, it's also wrapped so tight that it is hard to unroll without getting dings and creases in it. Ok for just doing studies I guess.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Heavier weight paper excellent for mixed media.
Canson XL Mixed Media Paper
from Oakland, Ca
It used the paper to make banners. I think I would've used a thicker paper but there are really no other options for the value, trust me, I searched far and wide. I got 16 rolls at 30' a piece which is impossible to beat for that price. I think it was 98 lb paper. I guess, the only way to beat it would be if there was 150 lb paper for a similar deal but there aren't - the paper price goes up exponentially for lb. increase. So for the value, it makes good due and I would recommend.
I keep buying it
from Los Angeles
This paper is a great deal for the size of roll it is....no other on the menu at that size without costing a fortune.. It is great for sorted mediums except too much paint or water makes it bubble so careful....Drawings and pastel are best!
nice price, but disappointed
The price was great, but I was disappointed since the product details said it was of a heavy weight material, but it sure was not! We had Mixed media by Strathmore in medium weight, and the Strathmore was significantly thicker. This Canson product would wrinkle up easier.
A Perfect Fit

Selection of this product gave me exactly what I was looking for - good weight, all the length I needed, and a reasonable price. I was happy to find exactly what I was looking for!
By Jacob - artist
from Seattle, WA
This product is not so great that you can paint heavily on it; though it is exceptional for dry media, and light washes. I was especially surprised at how well it takes ink. It does seem to warp slightly, though the appealing appearance of ink on this paper is worth it for me. It gives an almost "charcoal on Mylar" type of look for ink. Will buy again, especially for this price!
