What is mixed media paper? These are sheets of paper that are heavier in weight with a surface that is textured so it can accept both wet and dry media. Examples include light painting such as acrylic, different types of markers, inks and pens, pastels, charcoal, graphite, colored pencils and much more. You can acquire sheets or pads of paper and with endless options of creating anything from greeting cards to collages.
Does this paper work for watercolor? Yes, but not for very heavy usage of water. Remember that this paper works good for light painting because of its weight and texture, but if you are planning to have a heavy ratio of water to paint, you'd be better off using actual watercolor paper. We offer a wide variety of watercolor paper as well, so you can be confident in your creations no matter what type of paper you decide to go with.
Is this paper good for use with oil paint? When working with oil paints, it's best to stay away from paper all together and stick with other surfaces, such as canvas, wood, or metal. Since oil paint is heavier, it requires a stronger surface that won't soak or break down. Mixed media painting paper is not heavy enough to support oil paint.
