Clairefontaine Paint On Green Grey Padsare made within the Clairefontaine Paper Mill in Meurthe, France. The pads contain 30 pages of long natural unbleached virgin fibres, making this paper 100% natural and biodegradable. It is also PEFC certified from sourced, recyclable materials so it is very eco-friendly and has unique mechanical strength and flexibility. The sheets are pH neutral and acid-free. Each page is 250gsm and is great for charcoal, pencils and all mixed-media as it retains pigments well. It is a very resistant paper and can also be used for wet techniques such as acrylic and gouache. The paper is Green Grey in colour and smooth with a slight texture, similar to cartridge paper.
The Clairefontaine Paint On Pad is cut-edge which provides a clean edge to the paper. The cover is paperback with a cardboard back to provide a harder surface to work on. The bind is glued in and produces a straight edge when ripped out of the pad; it can also open-flat. The book isn’t too thick and it’s ideal for artists of all abilities.
