A paper that you don't feel guilty practicing on
from NY, NY
What is really great about this paper is that it is of above average student quality and a great price. Although the paper does buckle, if you tape it down and paint it may as well be an artist grade paper. The price is unbeatable and best of all I always feel comfortable to just practice a piece and not feel guilty about throwing the page out once I'm done.

Missing a sheet

I love this paper but my 12-sheet pad only had 11 pages. Since I'm cutting the pages to bind a book, the odd number threw me off. :(((
Wonderful Water Color Paper
By Busy Lady
from South Dakota
I use this for water color painting and it is great!
Happy with product
from Athens, OH
I paint with thick acrylics, not in a watercolor style. I bought this watercolor paper because it is spiral bound. It works fine for my acrylic painting. My goal was to have something to paint on that doesn't take up much space to store and that is economical enough that I can try new things without having a lot of money invested and regretting throwing it away. I do like the heavier acrylic paper better but it a not spiral bound so this is a good alternative.
I will invest my money on this product
It was highly recommended by my professor and the price wasReasonable
Quality product for years
I've been using this product for years. I love the way it handles watercolors as well as thinned acrylics.
