Great option for the classroom
from Mayville, NY
Comments about Richeson Bulk Watercolor Paper:
This is a review for 135# paper. While not quite a professional grade 140#, it is a great option for the classroom where a teacher wants to offer watercolor paper that can stand up to wet washes without soaking through the paper. It is sized and allows lifting, scraping and other watercolor texture techniques. I will most certainly buy it again so that my students can have fun without feeling apprehensive that their paper is too precious for play. Play is important!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

No Better Value Watercolor Paper
By Ms. Greene
from Phoenix, AZ
This paper has a small amount of texture but is perfect for various watercolor techniques. It's also super nice as drawing paper. the price and bulk amount is classroom perfect.
Happy with the paper.
This is a nice paper for elementary age students. It has held up well so far, though we have not used it very wet yet. It is a nice affordable paper for basic painting when you want the kids to have solid paper, but don't have a huge budget. I am not sure how it would stand up to very wet processes but if you were teaching older students about sizing and wet on wet technique you would want heavier paper anyway.
Nice watercolor paper for students
from Boston, MA
Nicely priced watercolor paper for student use. Unlike other student grade paper, this paper works! Sturdy and hard-working paper.
Excellent! I will be buying this again!
from Atlanta, Georgia
I was worried that the paper would be too thin or not absorbable enough for my printmaking project but it's great! And the surface is smooth, no tooth so it picks up ink beautifully!!
You can make copies on it
from New Jersey
Bought to make laser copies that can be watercolored. As watercolor paper, this is worse than any other, but at 88lbs/gsm, it can be run through laser printers.I would recommend it only for this purpose.
Great value for teachers!

We do so many amazing watercolor, multimedia, color pencil lessons on this nice smooth paper. You can even run it through the copiers at Kinkos with predesigned images!

More like drawing paper
from Eclectic Al
I should have read the reviews before ordering this paper, I ordered the 88lb. and I am not satisfied with the quality. The paper is more like drawing paper and not watercolor paper, it beads up and students have to press down for drawing wax resist technique. I will order from a different manufacturer next time and do more research.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
