Strathmore 500 Series Bristol Board
For smooth pencil drawings, you will want to choose the Smooth version. Vellum is good if you want a rougher texture,
or for charcoal work.
Created in 1893, this 100% cotton fiber, acid-free bristol is an industry standard. It's available in Vellum and Plate surfaces.
Plate (Hot Press) is unsurpassed for fine pen and pencil work, allowing flat and even washes. The Vellum (Cold Press) surface
is designed for pencil, colored pencil, soft to hard charcoal, hard pastel, and oil pastel. It is also suitable for washes
and gouache. Both surfaces are excellent for airbrush. Note : Some sizes are cut down from larger sheets. Therefore, the sheet
you receive may not have watermarks.
