Illustration board in bulk
By Painter Sue
from Des Moines, IA
Comments about Crescent No. 300 Cold Press Illustration Board:
The Cresent illustration board arrived in perfect condition. No bent corners and now discoloration. Just a great surface ready to accept a bit of water and as much paint as you please. Wish the board was a bit thicker for less curling.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just what I was looking for
from Allentown, PA
I have never used illustration boards in the past but they were just what I was hoping for. Held up to many different mediums and maintained its quality. Great price for bulk which I needed!
An Opportunity for More Experiments
from Sacramento, CA
I read about the versatility of illustration board for certain mixed media works in a book and am excited to try out this Crescent illustration board that is nice and thick and will not buckle, yet isn't as ponderous as a canvas. They are a great, inexpensive support that I'm looking forward to experimenting with!

Perfect for Mixed Media
from Chicago IL
I use this board as my standard go to when I do illustration work using multi/mixed media. I use it with graphite, oils, color pencil, and acrylic both separately and all together. The results are always amazing due to the fine texture and tooth of the board. It absorbs the oils nicely and because of the surface creates a variation of textures with pencil. It's perfect for high detail renderings and can take a beating with the use of multi media both wet and dry.
