Why is acid-free and cotton paper important?
The best paper is acid-free and has a high amount of cotton because it means the paper is less prone to turning yellow or deteriorating over time. Also, the more cotton a paper has, the better it holds water and the more vibrant the pigment remains.
What is the size and weight of this paper block?
This paper block is 8 inch wide (20.3cm) and weighs 280g (0.6 pounds).
What does it mean to have glue on "2 sides of the paper block"?
In a paper block, the sheets are glued together at the sides. In our blocks, instead of applying glue to all 4 sides of the sheets, we apply it to 2 sides. This makes it easier to remove each sheet.
How do you remove the sheets from the block?
When your painting is finished and dry, simply insert a palette knife (or similar instrument) below the sheet that you just painted and run it all the way around to free your painting from the block.
