Designed to hold substantial amounts of pigment these are the ultimate foundation for pastel charcoal or conté crayon. Textured surface on one side and smooth surface on the other; excellent for pencil and pastel pigments and layering of colors. Boards have the highest cotton content for a color art paper which allows it to perform nicely with many mediums. Provides the artist with a sturdier surface to work on and saves them from the extra mounting step since the paper is already mounted to a white conservation board. Good strength and perfect for folding. Ready to frame or exhibit. Lignin and acid-free. Formerly item #C199-6429.
