My favorite illustration paper
By Illustrator in Cali
from Hanford, CA
Comments about Strathmore 400 Series Mixed Media Pads:
I am so glad I found this paper. I use it just like I would use illustration board. It takes as many washes as I throw at it. It doesn't buckle! It performs better than any watercolor paper that I have tried and it is smooth. Perfect texture for pen and ink, and fine details. I love it because I can use it with a light box, and it is so easy to scan illustrations. The 18x24 size is perfect for illustrations that are 2 page spreads.I hope Strathmore never discontinues this or changes the quality.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent for Art Journaling
By Art Journaler
from Mishicot, WI
6x8 size used in conjunction with a plastic ring-bound Jr. sized journal. I was able to use the coordinating punch to make individual pages. I will certainly be reordering this item to make additional journal pages.

I am fairly new to watercolor and this paper has been wonderful to use. I love the smooth texture but mostly I love that it doesn't buckle or need to be taped and stretched like traditional watercolor paper. I use this will watercolor and ink and it works perfectly.

Good product. Many uses.
from Northern Virginia
Very nice surface for a variety of work. I have tested out glazes with embedded semi-precious aggregate. I have applied layers of gesso (clear, white, & with pigment added) for recording studio pigment mixes, tints, visual & mixed complements, etc. for permanent reference. The surface of the paper itself is very good for a variety of media & for detailed work. It's weight makes it a very good surface for efficient handling of related tools in the application of media.

The paper is really thick,which is something i really like about it . I can use watercolors and copic markers on it and nothing bleeds through. Pretty niicce.

I treat this excellent paper as if it were canvas....
By Jim Flanagan
from Phoenix, AZ
I'm an acrylic painter and frankly I beat the hell out of this paper with heavy coatings of gesso, paint, and mediums. Amazingly, unlike some other so-called "mixed media" papers, it still dries flat no matter what I do to it. I prefer the vellum texture for my brushwork so what's not to like.

Blick from now on!!
from Cocoa, Florida
I usually shop at a local National Retailer of Art & Craft Supplies and when ya factor in the 1/2 hour drive one way to the store, and the coupon deals they sometimes have, it seems like their prices are still too high. I'm glad to see Blick has what I need and at an affordable price, and I'll be buying from here from now on! Thanks Blick!
