PS112-S. Stillman & Birn Paper Full-Sheet Sample Pack. 22"x30" sheets, 9 total sheets.

These highly sought-after papers are now available in large sheets. They have both internal and surface sizing, giving them exceptional strength for applying wet and dry mediums. The sizing keeps pigments on the surface of the sheet -- you get vibrant colors and crisp edges, and the paper withstands erasure well.

The papers come in three surfaces.
Medium Grain: distinctive tooth, suitable for all dry media, and will also accept multiple washes.
Cold Press: Substantial tooth (but smoother than Cold Press watercolor paper), enhanced wet and tear strength, suitable for mixed-media artwork.
Smooth: Suitable for pen & ink, colored pencils, water-based markers as well as watercolors.

Two weights: 150 gsm and 270gsm. For comparison: Arches Text Wove (120gsm); watercolor paper 90lb(185gsm), 140lb (300gsm).

Pack includes 1 sheet of each (22"x30"). Each sheet in the pack is identified.
