300g (140lbs) acid-free, 50% cotton cold press paper.
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 keeps the pigment much more vibrant.
What is the size and weight of this paper block?
This A5 paper block is 14.8 x 21cm (or ~ 5.8 x 8.3in) and weighs 170g (0.37 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 your top sheet where you just painted and run it all the way around to free your painting from the block. Because it's only glued on two sides, you can easily do this with your hands.
