New Paper

I bought a pad of Bleedproof Borden & Riley Paris Paper For Pens . It’s great. Pens just glide on it. So smooth, even smoother than Bristol but there are some drawbacks. The paper is pretty thin compared to what I’m used to (108lb) . Plus it says it’s bleed proof , which it is for the most part, unless your using Chartpak Ad Markers. They bleed right on through . But that’s ok, I don’t know of a paper that they don’t bleed through. Also because this paper is thin, when I mounted it there were ripples, even using Nori paste which never ripples any of my watercolor paper or the Manila paper I was using. That in itself may be the one thing that keeps me from using this paper on finished pieces. After saying all that, I still recommend this pad. You will love how the pens glide on it, like skates on an ice rink (and not those new plastic “ice” rinks , real frozen water)

Later Dudes!
