Welcome to dickblick
Crafted in small batches at slow speeds in a European paper mill, Fluid watercolor papers possess the strength and working integrity of more expensive mouldmade papers.
Fluid 100 is a 100% cotton, natural white paper that is internally and externally gelatin-sized to achieve an archival standard of permanence. Choose from two weights — 140 lb (300 gsm) or 300 lb (640 gsm) — and two surfaces (hot press or cold press).

The paper is great, but the glue is terrible
Comments about Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper Blocks:
Great product, if it had a different glue. It is very difficult to remove the paper from the pad even with the correct tool. It is then really hard to remove the glue from the paper.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
from Hartford, AL
I am continuing my watercolor experience. This is the first time I have used 300# paper and I have really enjoyed it. I like the thickness and the ability to lift things off the page without a lot of damage. The cost was a good value.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

300 lb watercolor paper block
from Bedford, Indiana
This is the first time I have used this weight of watercolor paper and I love it! It doesn't buckle when really wet and it takes a lot of punishment from lifting and reworking. I may order another smaller size for preliminary planning of larger paintings.

"Love this watercolor paper"
By Kim L
from Granada Hills, Ca
I had tried this 300lb paper in a smaller size and loved how it can take any watercolor and make it look wonderful, so I knew I wanted a larger size. I wasn't disappointed and would purchase this again.

Glued only on 2 sides -- Larger sizes BUCKLE
By Napa Artist
from Napa, CA
I purchased several sizes and, unfortunately, the blocks larger than 12x16 buckled and rippled (and stayed that way when dried) as the blocks were only glued on 2 sides. I ended up having to stick masking tape on the unglued sides to make the blocks stay flat and workable but I finally got tired of doing that for every sheet I had to work on so I ended up going back to using Arches blocks. If you use a lot of washes on your work, I would not recommend using these at all.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that these blocks aren't working out for you. Please look for an email from one of our Customer Care Agents who will be reaching out to assist you.

Great watercolor paper!
from Martinez, CA
I have been using Arches Hot Press watercolor paper for years. Dont get me wrong its still a great paper.But then Blick had a deal on this paper which I couldnt pass up.I purchased the 8 x 8 hot press block. And now I am in love with it! I use Winsor & Newton watercolors and gouache and some Daniel Smith gouache also. The paint flows so nicely on this paper. I dont have one bad word to say about it! Except I wish I would have bought more when it was on sale!Oh and its made in the USA! Even better.

Easy block is quick and easy
from Tacoma, WA
Fluid blocks are a stack of watercolor papers bound on two sides. Blocks have the advantage of not needing to be taped to a board and each watercolor is easy to remove when finished. The smaller sizes are great for small, quick or practice projects since they are ready to use and you can quickly separate the top paper from the block. I use the 4 x 6 inch size mostly for watercolors that I attach to greeting cards for special friends and I buy the 4 x 6 size quite frequently.
Fluid 100 Watercolor Blocks
By Christy H
I love the 8"X8" sized block. It is a perfect size, easily transported when I am working away from home. It fits beautifully in a bag and is easy to work with anywhere. The paper will buckle slightly when working wet into wet but not enough to concern me. The benefits outweigh the slight buckling and is the only reason I did not give it five stars.
