Canson Biggie Sketch Pads 18 In. X 24 In.

The Review:

This paper is awesome. It has a semi-smooth surface and is sturdy enough to take some rough strokes. It is miles above newsprint, which has its own beauty.

It is like having a smooth watercolor paper.

I’ve also used this for gouache and acrylic paints. Both adhere very well to it, as does the color from the pastels.

I’ve used many less expensive papers and for the most part, Canson has always come out on top. It rarely rips under the pressure of sharp pencils, chalks, or wet brushes.

I find the white stays very bright and adds to my experience. I’ve come to trust this paper the most.

I’ve used them as sketch pads and for more elaborate collages effects. The Elmer’s white glue loves these papers.
