Alternatives to Arches paper please
« on: September 10, 2016, 12:19:17 PM »
I'm trying to find an alternative paper for a finished commission with pointed pen. I've used Arches HP in the past, which a lot of people recommend, but I still find it too scratchy. I'm thinking of trying out Strathmore 400 Mixed Media with vellum surface. Has anyone used it and is it smoother than Arches and good enough for a finished piece? I'm using watercolour in my nib.
