  • Watercolor Paper 101 | Carle Museum
    65 lb felt finish Student Watercolor paper We go through so much paper here that we buy it in 100 sheet packs 20 x26 and cut it down into rectangular or square pieces We re also a fan of Canson s line of high quality papers and often use them in our workshops Any art supply store will carry a variety of student grade and professional grade papers in sheets or pads in the size that works best for your home studio or classroom Occasionally we run out of watercolor paper before the next order arrives so we ll switch to a heavy weight drawing paper You ll notice the difference between watercolor paper and regular paper if you rub the surface too hard with a brush or overload it with water Extra sizing is added to watercolor papers to keep the wet media on the surface rather than absorbing into the fibers causing crumbling or tearing I ve witnessed children make hard brush marks or layer the paint on the surface get frustrated painting on lower quality paper If you ve seen a similar response consider upgrading to a higher quality paper One rule of thumb for finding the right paper for your needs is to look at the weight listed in pounds on the pack or pad The weight of the paper refers to the weight of a ream 500 sheets and not each individual sheet copy paper is about 20 lb 40 lb paper is thinner and not as sturdy as 140 lb paper You can read a lot more about how paper is made here or here In case you re looking for a gift for that young artist in your life The Carle Bookshop sells a line of very reasonably priced drawing sketchpads featuring some of Eric s well known characters including the Lil Eco Sketchpad and Sketch Tell books Keep the questions coming Email Meghan and Diana here ArtStudio carlemuseum org by Diana MacKenzie Tags heres looking at you watercolor paper This entry was posted on Wednesday September 14th 2011 at 8 00 am and is filed under By Diana MacKenzie Collage Our Favorite Materials Painting Paper You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories About This Blog 1 Bookmaking 24 By Diana MacKenzie 76 By Meghan Burch 63 Classes 22 Collage 66 Displays Window Shades 11 Drawing 50 Elementary School 97 Every Day Art Program 63 Found Materials 48 High School 25 Homemade Materials and Tools 16 Infants and Toddlers 47 Internship Program 25 Light 12 Middle School 33 Mixed Media 66 Nature 46 Our Approach 22 Our Favorite Materials 10 Outreach 23 Painting 57 Paper 37 Preschool
