Welcome to dickblick
The convenience of these extra-thick, stable boards eliminates the need for stretching or mounting.
Crescent Premium Watercolor Boards feature a 100% rag, heavyweight (140 lb, 300 gsm), acid-free paper mounted to an acid-free, archival, extra-heavyweight (.090”) core. Uniform surface sizing and internal sizing provide maximum durability for wet-on-wet techniques, reworking, and erasing.
Enhanced for use with paints such as watercolors, acrylics, and gouache, Crescent Premium Watercolor Boards can also be used for airbrushing, illustration, and light collage. They are not recommended for oil paints unless primed with gesso first. The board edges should be taped or waxed when used for heavy washes.
Handling Charge — When ordering sheets of paper or board larger than 18” x 24” in quantities of less than 10, a $3.00 per order handling fee applies. Paper or boards may be assorted to reach the quantity of 10.

Perfect for Watercolor
By Pet Artist
from Vero Beach, Florida
I have been using this product for years. It holds color and watercolor washes perfectly. You can also lift color from the board. I never worry about buckling because of the solid surface. The cold press is my favorite for my pet portrait art.

Crescent watercolor board
Surface has less texture than Arches Watercolor board and pigment seems to sit on the surface being less absorbent to washes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Excellent quality watercolor boarrd
from media Pa
I've been painting watercolor and acrylic portraits on Crescent watercolor board for decades. Most of this work was done for the Boeing Company, while I worked there in Philadelphia. The surface is not to rough for detail. Excellent for works that require a stiffer panel. It's a favorite of mine.

Watercolor board shipping was excellent.
from Slidell. LA
I was a little concerned about having only 4 sheets of illustration board delivered through the mail. The packing was, however, excellent - not one corner bent!

Fantastic material to use with most watermedia. I use it exclusively with watercolor, gouache and casein.
