Love this paper

Comments about Pacon Gray Bogus Drawing Paper:
This paper has a pleasing grey tone to it. Works great for sketches and especially soft pastels. The paper has a nice tooth and is not easily furred up. The grey tone works great as a background for simple studies versus the unfinished look of white paper.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great value for lots of paper
from Chicago, IL
I really like this paper, it is much thicker than newsprint, is a true mid-tone gray, and takes charcoal, pencil, and pastel really well. It is not real toothy, but I can get a few layers on the paper when using softer pastels. This makes it a great paper for pastel and charcoal sketching and practice pieces. Like newsprint, this paper doesn't offer longevity, but I make cheap sketchbooks with it and got the bigger size to use at figure drawing sessions.

I use the gray bogus paper for pastel pencil drawings. I love the color and the texture. It holds the pastel with out being too textured, like many pastel papers are. It's inexpensive enough that I can easily throw it out and start over if necessary. I use it for my figure drawing group too. The only question I have is, "is it acid free"? Even if it's not , I think it will be ok as long as I seal it from the air when I frame it. Answers about this would be appreciated.

This paper is one of the best values here at Blick you can't get anywhere else. The heavier weight (76 lb) gray paper is great for pastels and charcoal. Although it won't replace the finer papers one would use for finished artworks in pastels, etc., I recommend it, especially for someone who needs lots of toned paper for practice.
"Bogus" bogus paper
from Waverly, TN
Paper too thin although it was labeled heavyweight. Not enough tooth for our project.

Excellent paper for still life drawings
from New Hampshire
Grey Bogus Paper is excellent for still life drawings featuring clear glass objects. Using white charcoal pencil to achieve the light shining on the glass objects gives an excellent effect!

Great Paper for charcoal or pastel
Great price for the paper, the sheets are nice and flat, not warped like the brown pads can be. The texture is a little velvetier than their brown as well. Takes a lot of abuse and doesn't show wear and tear. I use it for figure drawing and am making a sketchbook out of it.
