Canson Vidalon Vellum Tracing Pads
Vidalon is a highly transparent and smooth natural tracing paper of exceptional quality imported from the Canson mill in France. This natural vellum has been made transparent without oil, unlike most tracing vellums on the market.
The paper has a specially developed surface designed to take pencil, ink, fiber-tip and technical pens without smudging, yet mediums will erase cleanly without any residue. It will not yellow over time, making it very well-suited for long-time use. Media, including markers, does not bleed through and maintains clear color intensity.
Each pad holds 50 sheets of 55 lb. tracing vellum.
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.
