Art Paper Series
Art Papers are a large-size sheet program to compliment the Stillman & Birn sketchbooks, giving artists a choice of paper weight, shade and surface/tooth, internal and surface sizing, and wet strength that supports both dry and wet media. They serve as extensions of the sketchbook papers, which can be preliminary work in planning larger scale pieces. The even-sided surfaces on the front and back side of sheets are identical and drawing-friendly and are suitable for a combination of drawing and painting techniques. Each series of paper supports drawing with all lead types enabling the artist to produce fluid, unbroken strokes, repeated erasures without damaging the surface, inking techniques without feathering, blending and layering with colored pencils and pastel projects ranging from concept sketch to full on multi-media layering techniques. They support advanced wet media techniques including wet-in-wet, glazing, lifting, stretching and masking. These papers are archival quality conforming to ISO 9706 standards for permanent paper, acid-free, chloride free and lignin-free. Each sheet has a removable bar code label and comes packaged in bar-coded packs of 5 sheets each.
