Paper Problems
« on: 24 January, 2017, 01:10:37 pm »
Hey guys. Long time no post. I've been busy learning how to bloody draw and have run into a snag that I'm hoping someone can shine some light on. So, any artists on here that use traditional media? I've gotten into using Dr Martin's inks lately (which I really like!) but I find that the 220gsm card I'm using does get a little tired and has a tendency to warp. So, I'm looking into getting some Strathmore 500 series (the 2 ply kind. 3 ply is way way way beyond my budget). Has anyone used this and can they vouch for it using drawing inks? Does anyone know what 2 ply is in gsm? I'm in the UK (like most of you, I guess), so this stuff isn't readily available. Thought I'd ask before I invest money in something that's unsuitable. Any suggestions on possible alternatives? Thank you kindly in advance.
