Black Mixed Media Pads
Strathmore's new 400 series Black Mixed Media pads feature the characteristics of watercolor paper with the finish of a drawing sheet, creating the ultimate paper for combined mediums. Intended for finished paintings, drawings or studies, the paper is acid-free and specially sized for wet media performance with a vellum finish that is excellent for graphite, colored pencils, markers, acrylic, watercolor, gouache, pen & ink, charcoal, gel pens and more.
Each pad includes 15 heavy-weight 184 lb. (300gsm) sheets with easy-to-use flip-over covers that keep pages in the pad, yet allow them to tear out cleanly.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
