Strathmore Illustration Boards have a textured surface designed primarily for wash drawings, pen-and-ink, pencil, charcoal, pastels, crayon, and felt markers. The textured surface of a vellum board permits the medium to be applied without fast absorption, which in turn allows the washes to blend smoothly.
Strathmore's 500 Series Illustration Board is made of 100% cotton fiber, acid-free paper. It is mounted on both sides to a high quality white board to create a balanced tension that prevents warping.
The lightweight vellum boards are 42 pt, and the heavyweight vellum boards are 72 pt.
