P39. Cotton Comp Pad
October 2019: Both sizes of this pad are out of stock. Any backorders will be cancelled. For a similar pad please see P32 Canson Pro Marker Layout.

This layout pad from Borden & Riley is 100% Rag Marker with a very smooth finish. The paper takes ink without bleeding or feathering. With these great qualities, this pad is a step-up from the regular Marker Layout. 50 sheets.


"The Cotton Comp paper is now my favorite, as it is more
translucent and letters can be traced through it more easily than through layout paper, yet it has more substance than tracing paper."
-- Sheila Waters. Cyberscribes, January 2008.

Choose size: 9x12 or 11x14.

P41. Bienfang Graphics 360 Pad
This 100% Rag Layout pad allows ink to flow smoothly but keep a sharp edge. The white sheet with good translucency allows for easy use of guidelines. Very similar to Cotton Comp, but this pad is higher quality. Recommended by Peter Thornton.

50 sheets per pad
