I've been using this paper for years. I use a mixture of watercolors, inks and colored pencils and it handles them all very well. If you buy a roll this large just make sure you have a table big enough to roll it out on and be prepared to straighten it. This is a great buy.

Rolled paper has memory
By Geometry Painter
from Anderson, IN
I have used the Strathmore 400 Mixed Media paper for a couple of years now and have thoroughly enjoyed the 18x24" PADS. I use it for acrylic ink glazes that are heavily thinned with Liquitex matte medium and overlayed with oil pastel and colored pencil. The paper holds up fine and its texture is unobtrusive. I say this about the PADDED paper.The roll has been a different thing altogether... The paper itself is the same but it has an amazing memory of the roll and it doesn't want to forget the curl. I have to cut it at least a week in advance of needing it; stack the cut sheets curl side down and weighted. I haven't tried dampening it before stacking because I'm afraid the sheets will stick together.I have used rolled papers before - The rolled Rives BFK has been a solid material in my studio for years...Once it's unrolled and hung for a day it's straight as a board.Unfortunately, not this mixed media paper and I'm disappointed. I was hoping to work larger than the 18x24.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback! Papers derived from wood pulp do have greater "memory" than 100 percent cotton papers like the Rives. Our Product Information Team is more than happy to work with you to find a solution that would be the size you're looking for and have the specific characteristics you need.

Strathmore, a Brand to Trust
from Youngsville, LA
I buy this product because I am a paper marbler, and it is strong enough to be soaked and saturated and hung with clothes pins to dry. It takes the paint well, and doesn't leave blank spots. I buy it on a roll, because that is the only cost-effective way to get big enough pieces for laying out in a marbling tank. The only drawback to a roll is that 140 lb. paper is stiff, and hard to unroll in order to cut and measure.
