Mixed media paper is the bomb. I like that I can use it for watercolor and acrylic and sketching and whatever the heck I want to.
I have special watercolor paper but I’m “saving” it for something. So it sits, still in the package, whereas I pull this pad of mixed media paper down all the time and use it. The sheets are big – 11 x 14 inches – so I can cut them to whatever size I need.
The cover says vellum surface and it really does feel like vellum under my hand – so smooth and creamy.
The paper is thick and that makes it feel kind of luxurious, too, but not so luxurious that I’m reluctant to experiment.
Plenty of sheets come in a pad, which is all the better for art play.
