Would not buy again
Comments about Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper Blocks:
Finally tried this paper that I got awhile back. It's a Fluid 100 block, 9" x 12", 300 lb. cold press finish. The paper is glued only on 2 sides of the block. The paper buckled some, which I wasn't expecting as the block isn't that big. The real problem occurred when I went to lift some color. It didn't lift well and the paper very quickly began to disintegrate. If you're the kind of painter that never tries to lift color off of your work then this would be ok. Will not buy again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have brought this product again and again.
By Robyn H
from metro Richmond, VA area
Fluid 100 is my go-to watercolor paper. I know that when I put a color down, it will stay there. That's how I want it. If you want to do a lot of lifting or moving your paint, this probably isn't the paper for you. It does not do wet on wet or we on damp well. If you want your paper to keep them how you paint them, I recommend at least trying it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
great multi purpose paper
from Charlotte NC
I really like these blocks and the paper - great for pen and ink watercolor washes, love the texture for colored pencil both dry and water soluble pencils - great size and price to play around with. I agree with a previous shopper - separating the paper from the glue is not great even with care.....would love to company to look into improving this.....would otherwise give it 5 stars.
I'm in love!
from Glenn Dale, MD
I use this paper to create small watercolor paintings. I absolutely love the weight and feel of the paper. And the fact that it can hold a lot of paint without any buckling just makes the painting process so much more pleasurable.
The paper is great, but the glue is terrible
Great product, if it had a different glue. It is very difficult to remove the paper from the pad even with the correct tool. It is then really hard to remove the glue from the paper.

Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
from Hartford, AL
I am continuing my watercolor experience. This is the first time I have used 300# paper and I have really enjoyed it. I like the thickness and the ability to lift things off the page without a lot of damage. The cost was a good value.
I would buy this again
from Hailey, Idaho

300 lb watercolor paper block
from Bedford, Indiana
This is the first time I have used this weight of watercolor paper and I love it! It doesn't buckle when really wet and it takes a lot of punishment from lifting and reworking. I may order another smaller size for preliminary planning of larger paintings.

"Love this watercolor paper"
By Kim L
from Granada Hills, Ca
I had tried this 300lb paper in a smaller size and loved how it can take any watercolor and make it look wonderful, so I knew I wanted a larger size. I wasn't disappointed and would purchase this again.

Glued only on 2 sides -- Larger sizes BUCKLE
By Napa artist
from Resort location
I purchased several sizes and, unfortunately, the blocks larger than 12x16 buckled and rippled (and stayed that way when dried) as the blocks were only glued on 2 sides. I ended up having to stick masking tape on the unglued sides to make the blocks stay flat and workable but I finally got tired of doing that for every sheet I had to work on so I ended up going back to using Arches blocks. If you use a lot of washes on your work, I would not recommend using these at all.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that these blocks aren't working out for you. Please look for an email from one of our Customer Care Agents who will be reaching out to assist you.
