Canson XL Sand Grain Natural Dry Mixed Media Pads

Canson XL Sand Grain Dry Mixed Media Pads feature a unique natural sand grain surface, similar to a sanded pastel paper, but not quite as toothy. XL® Sand Grain is a natural colored paper made from organic, renewable materials. Its special texture allows for good pigment retention for dry media. This toned paper is ideal for all dry drawing techniques including soft pastel, charcoal, carbon, and graphite. It is a double-sided paper, and ideal for students.

Ideal for drawing and sketching with graphite, colored pencil, pastel, and charcoal, Canson XL Sand Grain Dry Mixed Media Pads feature an innovative paper with a textured, sand grain finish. Easy to erase, sheets can be used on both sides and will retain pigment beautifully, allowing for the creation of subtle color effects. Bound on the short side, these tape-bound pads contain 40 sheets of 98 lb (160 gsm) paper.
