Strathmore Oil Painting paper provides artists with a convenient alternative to canvases or boards for oil paints or oil pastels. No gesso is required to prevent oil saturation, just simply tear out a sheet and start painting. The linen surface mimics canvas while providing texture to help blend and hold layers of paint in place. Intended for the creation of final art pieces. Ten 215lb. sheets per glue-bound pad.
This natural white paper is ideally suited for printmaking processes that require a heavier paper such as lithography, intaglio, and screen print. Also suitable for relief printing. The medium-textured surface is soft, durable, and can absorb large amounts of ink. Paper is high alpha cellulose wood fiber.
Superior for use with art and drafting instruments and brushes. Higgins inks may be thinned with water for washes and are excellent for use with airbrushes. Superwhite, White, Neutral Gray, and Russet are waterproof. All colors come in non-breakable, 1 oz. bottles with dropper tops.
A smooth surface and light sizing makes this paper a favorite with artists and printmakers working in practically every technique.

Excellent for all hand-printing processes, lithography, intaglio etching, wood engraving, silkscreen, linocut and collotype. They may also be used for embossing and drawing, though they are not recommended for offset printing.
