Strathmore 400 Series Toned Mixed Media PadsSet the tone for your mixed media work! The Strathmore 400 Series Toned Mixed Media pads feature the perfect hybrid of 400 Series Toned Sketch and 400 Series Mixed Media in a flip over cover pad.
Offered in the same heavy weight as Strathmore 400 Series Mixed Media paper at 184 lb (300 gsm), it combines the characteristics of watercolour paper with the vellum finish of a drawing sheet. Its medium surface is great for coloured pencils, pastel, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolour, gouache, acrylic, graphite, gel pens, and more, creating the ultimate paper for mixed media artwork.
Available in the tan and gray colours from the Strathmore 400 Series Toned Sketch line, plus a NEW blue tone, these papers are designed for use with both light and dark media. Starting your artwork using these mid-range tones allows for unique sketching and drawing possibilities by providing the middle value that would otherwise need to be rendered by the artist. A wider range of values from light to dark can be used, and the middle tone makes it easier to deliberately place shadows and highlights, making sketches and drawings pop.
The paper is acid free, 100% recycled with 30% post-consumer fiber, and also contains kraft and bark fiber inclusions which add visual interest.
