use this for oil pastels
from Columbia, MO
Comments about Reeves Watercolor Pad:
I use this with oil pastels and then use Eco House Thinner (bought here under Eco-house). It is a totally organic and healthy liquid to put in a water brush or use as just a liquid to move paint around like it is watercolor(beautiful opaque). Use Cray-Pas Sakura 50 count rainbow of colors oil pastels also sold here at Blick. Haven't tried this paper with watercolor pencils but I bet it would be fine. At only 147 gm paper it is NOT going to be watercolor paper as light watercolor paper is 300 gm. But this paper is GREAT for oil pastels. Great to work on and fantastic price! THANKS DICK BLICK. This watercolor paper also works great for color pencils.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Worst. Paper. EVER!
from Stephens City, VA
This paper tears and pills as soon as it is damp. It's best use is for test paper. I complained to Blick, and they replaced it no problem. However, I see they still offer it for sale.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

As everyone else has said, this paper is terrible. It buckles and tears super easily. Don't waste your money, even for practicing.

Worst choice even for children.
By Water lad
from Brownsville, TX
I use cheap watercolor paper to do practice paintings where I can do mistakes before engaging in the final painting on the «good» paper, so I got a Reeves pad seeing that it was pretty cheap. Normally for less than five dollars you only get about a dozen sheets of 90 gr watercolor paper in a 9x12 inch pad, so with 35 sheets, the Reeves pad seemed like a total bargain. Well, even taking this into consideration, with this item you get less than you paid for. Reeves is well known for providing cheap art products for amateurs and students. I respect this, since I've bought Reeves pencils, sketch pads and plastic palettes before and find them quite convenient and useful considering their low price. However the watercolor pads shouldn't even carry the word watercolor in their covers. This doesn't even seem like low end watercolor paper and it won't even take a single wash before warping and bleeding paint and water onto the following sheet. I am currently using my pad to do pencil sketches but nothing else. It's not even good enough for novice students to practice their first watercolor lessons. Although I'd recommend many other Reeves items the watercolor pad is one I'll never buy again. Avoid it completely even if it's the cheapest around.

Don't Waste Your Money
The paper is really not good. It buckels deeply and will not stand up to more than a few drops of water before doing so. Even though it's cheap, don't waste your money. :)

It's not watercolor paper
By meandering marv
from S.E. Idaho
This is really not a watercolor paper. When wet it buckles and tears easily. However, I did find that one could use it with watercolor pencils, if only a very light amount water was used on the brush to blend the colors in.
