Papers, Pads & Journal

Paper that has a neutral or basic pH (7 or slightly greater). It can be made from any cellulose fiber as long as the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. It is also lignin and sulfur free. Acid-free paper addresses the problem of preserving documents for long periods.

Paper made from wood-based pulp that has not had its lignin removed goes yellow and deteriorates over time.  When exposed to light and/or heat, the molecules in the acidic paper will break down even faster. It was only in the 1930s that the effects of wood-pulp paper became known, when William Barrow (a librarian) published a report about the deterioration of acidic paper in the libraries. For fear of the gradual disintegration of written materials, measures have been taken to improve the quality of paper.

For Oil & Acrylic
Oil & Acrylic Paper/Pads have always been the preferred surface when it comes to Oil or Acrylic Painting. For both beginners and professionals alike, paper has always been the favored medium thanks to a combination of affordability and convenience. Unlike standard paper, Oil or Acrylic Paper/Pads are much thicker and come with a textured surface for your paint to latch on to. They are also great for artists who are always on-the-go since oil/acrylic paper pads are portable, unlike the standard cotton canvas.
For Pastel
Pastel paper, also called ingres paper, is textured paper that comes in a wide range of colors and tones. You can buy it in single sheets or in pad form. Some varieties have been sanded or treated to give them added texture.
For Watercolor
Watercolor paper comes in 3 types: hot-pressed, cold-pressed, or rough. Hot-pressed watercolor paper is generally smooth. Rough watercolor paper is, well, rough. Cold-pressed watercolor paper is somewhere in between. If you use watercolor paper for your pen and ink drawings, you can also apply watercolor washes above or below the ink marks.
For Charcoal & Drawings

Sketch paper is often lighter weight, while drawing paper is conversely a bit heavier in weight. With drawing papers typically being heavier, the artist is able to work on the sheet longer and refine work. The paper can usually stand up to more erasing and more fine detail work.

Sketch paper is typically less expensive, giving you lots of sheets to practice with in your pad. Drawing paper typically will be a bit more expensive than Sketch paper and will usually contain fewer sheets in a pad.

Both sketch and drawing papers are intended for use with dry media such as graphite, charcoal and conte. However, drawing papers typically have a toothier surface, allowing for enhanced variability of tone. Many artists reserve mediums like pastels and colored pencils for drawing paper versus sketch paper since those are typically intended for finished art and the deeper tooth of a drawing paper allows artists to get more depth of color. The toothier surface of a drawing sheet is better for “grabbing” dry media, which allows an artist to create more intense areas of light and dark than what could be achieved on a sketch surface. An artist will also see different results when using various shading techniques such as cross hatching, using a blending stump, or other methods, so it's best to test out different papers and see what your own individual preferences are. 

Journal & Notebooks

Art journaling has a long-standing artistic tradition. Artists through the centuries have kept notebooks in which they sketched, practiced, experimented, and recorded themselves. Vincent vanGogh kept notebooks. Picasso and DaVinci were two other prolific sketchbook keepers. You are in good company! If you feel like exploring famous and not-so-famous artists’ sketchbooks, go to Artists’ Sketchbooks Online.

You might be thinking, I’m not an artist! Well, I beg to differ. You are an artist, and you can create an art journal without drawing or sketching. In fact, I’m lousy at drawing, so I use collage techniques to express myself. Stamp images, vintage photographs and magazine images make up for the fact I can’t draw.
