These pads contain versatile, cream colored drawing paper for sketching and most finished work. The paper is ideal for working with pencil, colored pencil, charcoal or sketching sticks to achieve a great depth of tone and uniform areas of half tones. It features the same cream color as the top-selling 400 Series Drawing papers, however the medium surface of this extra heavy-weight 100 lb. (163 gsm) paper has slightly more texture than the 80 lb. sheets found in the 400 Series Drawing pads. Each spiral-bound pad contains 24 perforated "actual size" sheets.
