Nice subtle texture
Comments about Canson XL Watercolor Pads:
I left a previous review based on a bad batch of this paper. Blick was kind enough to send me a new pad free of charge (thanks Blick!) and the new one is better, so I wanted to add a new review to even it out.I really like that this paper has a much softer tooth than the other student grade watercolor papers I've tried. It's kind of in between hot and cold press, which is perfect to me. I do find that only the front side is useable for watercolor; the backside can't handle much water.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great watercolor paper for class
from New York, NY
I use this watercolor paper for summer art class. Other cheaper watercolor paper are too thin, and couldn't hold up that many water. Real heavy watercolor paper are expensive, this one is at great price and good thickness for the class.
Perfect watercolor paper for summer art camp
from Winter Park, Florida
This watercolor paper was used for summer art camp and worked beautifully for watercolor paintings and process art using techniques such as salt. Parents were thrilled with the great results!
Great product! Good price too
By Jake Daurham
from Phoenix, Az
I use this product for my art shows, so fresh, flat and undamamged, large sheets of watercolor paper is the best thing for the job. This right here does it perfectly. My package came in wrapped tight and safe. Couldn't be more of a fan of Dickblick.

Good quality paper
By Art educator

We used the paper for splatter painting in K thru 5th grade classes. Some of the students poured tremendous amount of paint on the paper and created pool of paints. The paper held up nicely..
Very nice paper! #sweepstakes
from Fleming Island FL
Very nice quality for the price. Great for beginners and students. You can 'work' this paper quite a bit. Stands up to watercolor techniques, collages, acrylics and even embossing. #sweepstakes
