Great for watercolors
from Raleigh, NC
I am new at watercolor and have heard that gatorboard is a great alternative to stretching paper. Although the board does curl a bit, overall, the surface is sturdy.
I love to be able to move around with my water color work the Gator board is perfect! Light Weight and water resistant very easy to use
Just what I needed

Great board to paint with watercolors on
from Davenport, FL
I use gatorboard as the backing for my watercolor painting and it holds up great. It can handle the large amounts of water and staples. I would recommend it to anyone interested in WC
The best support for my watercolor paintings
from Shreveport, LA
Gatorfoam is the best product to use as a watercolor paper support. It is very sturdy, repels water and it takes stapling very well. I would be at a loss without this product.
just what I needed.
from Aberdeen WA
It was easy to cut with a utility blade even a box cutter would do it. I was grateful they sent me samples, it was just what I was looking for, very light weight but having the strength to hold what I was mounting. It may have been some what costly when shipping was including but its worth it, Amazing too I looked on the internet Blick is the only one that stocks it retail.
Great product - gatorboard
from Charlotte nc
Lightweight and great to staple my watercolor paper on. The staples hold well, which many other products do not.

Great backing board
from Palm Harbor, FL
I use these boards as backing for papers I paint on in plein air. I also use them to mount linen for oil paintings. They are lightweight, yet almost indestructible.
Great service! Great product!
