Strathmore 500 Series Bristol Drawing Paper
Great paper for: Graphite pencil, coloured pencil, charcoal, sketching stick, pen & ink, marker, soft pastel, mixed media, oil pastel, light wash and collage.
Created in 1893, this 100% cotton bristol is an industry standard. Plate surface has an ultra-smooth finish that is unsurpassed for detailed work with technical pen, airbrush and marker. Vellum surface has a toothy finish that is excellent for pencil, charcoal, pastel and oil pastel as well as pen, airbrush, and light washes.
When using graphite, it holds dense blacks very well.
