Watercolor Pad Awesomeness
from Summit, New Jersey
I use watercolor in 2-D dimensional illustration. So, this was an awesome pack!!
Love Strathmore paper especially for watercolor
I actually intended to order the Bristol paper so this particular paper wasn't quite as expected. Nonetheless it is very good with watercolor which is what I almost always use for watercoloring. The Brostol paper is also excellent for working with Zig markers. The four stars are not due to a kick but rather my error in picking the wrong Strathmore paper. Blick has a broad selection of products with great prices and simply AMAZING customor service!

Great watercolor paper!!
from The Great Southwest
I love this paper and use it quite often. The wire bound format is convenient to paint on and I have used the smallest one to create gifts for friends, such as painting various birds, one on each page. I recently created a book of birds with quotes for a friend's Christmas gift. This was very well received and the paper was a joy to use. I think it is a bit better than the regular Strathmore 400 series watercolor paper....the paint goes on so smoothly, it buckles less and overall I am very pleased with the results when I use it. The only thing to improve it would be to add micro-perforations to be able to remove a sheet at a time in a convenient manner without the possibility of tearing the page as I remove it. I buy this in groups of ten and find myself using this paper more and more as I improve my painting techniques. I think Strathmore is a solid bargain for painters, a high quality paper and the prices are best on Blick!

Strathmore Windpower Watercolor Pads
These watercolor sheets are beautiful and can take many, many washes of the paint brush. I can apply tons of water and paint and the paper will not bend or curl up from being so damp. Strathmore Windpower Watercolor Pads are best in category and a fantastic deal for a real master pice painting.
Strathmore Artist Papers supports environmental solutions that don't compromise their paper performance, appearance or price.
