Acrylic paper is widely used when working on location and for experimenting with new applications. Carrying paper is a lot easier than carrying a canvas, and working with paper also makes it possible to cut out sections, frame them, or attach them to something else. Acrylic paint contains water and as the acrylic paint dries, water evaporates from the paint, leaving you with less volume. To prevent the paper from warping during the drying process, acrylic paper is usually heavy weight. These pads contain 15 sheets of 140 lb. (290gsm) paper.

The paper is prepared, so you can begin working on it immediately.
