Comments about Indigo Art Papers Indigo Artpapers Flax Blend Watercolor Papers:
I like that this paper is not bright white. It is ivory or off-white. The paper is exceptionally sturdy and versatile. It will accept water-color and acrylic (even heavy bodied) and can handle layers of paint and gesso. It is a great value.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

the paper of my dreams
from Washington, DC
It's strong, really really strong (I haven't figured out how to tear it) and the texture and color are beautiful. Even though the texture is so marked you can get a crisp edge on a flat wash, and in a graded wash the paint disperses smoothly and evenly so you can see the gradation from the darkets to the lightest, as if the paper itself was a substitute for skill with the brush. It just seems to do whatever I want it to do. It doesn't buckle when it's wet, even in the 140-lb weight. I'm an amateur painter for whom a lot of the pleasure of watercolor painting is the physical pleasure of the materials; and this paper is pure pleasure to work with. It's the first paper I've ever used that, in itself, seemed to offer a reason to go out and just paint.

An Instant Favorite
from Upper Black Eddy, PA
I bought a sheet of this to try (450 gsm), and it was an instant favorite the second I opened the package and laid eyes on it. It is beautifully earthy in both texture and color; the feel of it is rough and highly durable. I couldn't wait to use it, so I did a quick watercolor to see how it takes the paint. I found that it is a little more absorbent than the 200 lb. cold press I usually use (Saunders Waterford, my other favorite), so the pigments need to be applied more heavily. But the texture of the painting is so lovely, I will be buying this paper regularly from now on. The bonus is that it dries so flat (I never stretch my paper) you can turn it over and use the other side like a new piece of paper -- it's that tough. The photo is a detail of my sketch, showing the texture of the surface through the paint.

This paper has a very interesting texture which encourages you to indulge more and more. I am surprised by the amount of layers of paint this paper can handle. Highly recommended!
