Not sure I like the new Crescent 310. It has wrinkles ans seems it wants to delaminate if I use too much water. I like the old 310 better.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not what it used to be
By Botanical Artist
For many years I have used 310 board with transparent acrylics. This is the first batch I've purchased since they changed the board and it does not handle the paint nearly as well. This technique requires using a velvet wet wash to which a very thinned-down paint is applied. The new 310 board "dries back" inconsistently and thus creates "spiderwebbing" instead of holding clean detailed marks. What I've found is that the "new" board requires much less "wash" and a lot more drying time to create the detail I need. This board is a bit "spongey" and requires a lot more work time to get the results I am accustomed to.

310 is the best of the best.

Amazing paper for watercolor and ink, very easy to get nice blends and fades without that hard edge that watercolor tends to leave. Annoyingly all the sheets I bought have one edge bent I'm assuming they were damaged in transit.
