Welcome to dickblick
This heavyweight, versatile Strathmore acid-free paper was made with the acrylic artist in mind, but it is also well suited for a variety of other painting, drawing, pastel or charcoal applications where a heavy paper with a toothy surface is desirable. The paper has a cream-colored linen finish. 246 lb (400 gsm).
New flipover covers make it easy to work in the pad. Sheets stay in the pad yet tear out cleanly. 10 sheets per pad.

Comments about Strathmore 400 Series Acrylic Pads:
I paint with thick acrylics. I bought this acrylic paper for an economical surface to paint on that doesn't take much space to store. If I try something that doesn't work out, I'm not out much money. If it turns out great, I can mount it to board and frame it. If I want to store it, it doesn't take much space. The only thing I don't like about it is the tape binding. If it was spiral bound it would be perfect.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This paper is heavy weight and a very noticeable "LINEN" grain to it. Acrylic paint goes on very smoothly and it also reacts wonderfully to brush and palette knife. Been using this for many years instead of canvas.

I use this product for acrylic paintings - very easy surface to paint on and heavy enough so that it does not buckle - great product

Jury is still out
from Bozeman, MT
I usually use Acrylic on stretched canvas or 300 # watercolor paper. I thought this might be a good alternative. In order to place it on my easel, I had to tape the paper down like watercolor paper on a support. The paper has a nice texture so in the beginning I was intrigued. The paper responded well during the initial stages but when it was drying, II got some buckling. Then when I removed the masking tape the edges of the paper separated and stuck to the masking tape ruining the painting sides. I expected more durability from a paper designed for acrylic. I'd rather use 300 pound watercolor paper then this. At least the 300 pound paper doesn't buckle or tear with the removal of masking tape. So I wouldn't reorder this product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
