NEW! Strathmore Heavyweight Mixed Media

We are excited to introduce the newest member of the Strathmore Mixed Media Family!

500 Series Heavyweight Mixed Media Pads 

100% cotton ● acid free ● 350lb. / 570 g/m2 ● 3-ply

This extra heavyweight, 3-ply cotton surface is internally sized for wet media and has a durable vellum finish for drawing techniques.

What is it good for?

An extremely wide range of mediums. It is excellent for watercolor, gouache, acrylic, graphite, pen and ink, marker, pastel and collage. It also works great for paint pouring and is an excellent choice for colored pencil artists. The durable vellum finish allows it to stand up to many layers of colored pencil and the internal sizing enables it to handle solvents and blending agents . It is archival, 100% cotton, and is lignin free.

Available in glue bound pads that allow pages to tear out cleanly:

  • 6" x 8"
  • 9" x 12"
  • 11" x 14"

You may already know this surface:

If you're familiar with our 500 Series Mixed Media Sheets & Rolls, Mixed Media Visual Journals, and 500 Series Hardbound & Softcover Art Journals, then you already know what a resilient surface this is. Our new Heavyweight Mixed Media pads are made with the same base paper as these products, but in an extra heavyweight version.
