Good alternative to Watercolor Paper
from payson, IL
Comments about Strathmore 400 Series Mixed Media Pads:
I use this paper for a bit of watercolor, pen and ink, and colored pencil work. It works pretty well and is quite durable. I have used it several times in the past with good results.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Yes, I will buy this again.
from Tewksbury, MA
I often purchase sketch books either for myself or as a gift. I like to work in different mediums depending on what I am working on at the time. My daughter introduced me to these sketchbooks and I fell in love with them.

My favorite paper
from San Diego, CA
I teach watercolor painting on cruise ships. I'm just completing a 6 week cruise on which I used this paper for the first time. I do a urban sketching style (ink pen and watercolor wash) and have found this paper gives me the best results. I also use tradional cold press watercolor paper but this mixed media paper is what I'm using the most. I do 5-8 paintings a day, portraits and landscapes, and am delighted with the results.

Truly mixed media
If I had to chose a single paper to use for the rest of my life, this would be it. You can do literally anything on it. The surface feels like a harder, stiffer hot press watercolor paper. Most MM papers aren't very nice to draw on, but this one is great. It's smooth and bright enough, just like a good bristol board, to use for detailed pen and ink. It's heavy and sturdy enough to take massive watercolor washes, and warps a bit but doesn't buckle up like other MM papers. The lack of buckling means I can gesso a whole page to use for oil. I use acrylic all the time as well. It handles watercolor well, though keep in mind it's very smooth and watercolor won't look the same as on cold-press watercolor paper. The only medium I've had a little difficulty with was gouache - there's not quite enough tooth to hold thick gouache, though washes are fine. Of course, something that works for everything will never be ideal for one thing, so don't expect this stuff to replace your watercolor paper or canvas. But if you want a good sturdy paper that will take anything you throw at it, this is it.
Excellent paper. For SO many uses!
from Cambria, CA
I've tried other papers - but always end up happiest with what I've done on this paper.
