Montval Acrylic Paper is a heavyweight, textured paper that is internally and externally gelatin sized. It provides the artist with a cold pressed surface suitable for a wide variety of painting and drawing techniques. Ideal for acrylic paint and wet techniques! When acrylics are used as a thick paste, characteristics similar to oil paint can be achieved on this paper. When diluted to a wash, the gelatin-sized paper features qualities of a cold pressed watercolor paper. With an application of gesso, the paper can be used for oil paintings. 148 lbs (400 gsm) and quite stiff. This is not the same 'coated' paper that you get in the pads, this paper is more like a heavy-weight watercolor paper. Acid-free. Package of 10 ready to use cards, perfectly sized for ATCs, ACEOs or Sketch Cards. (2-1/2 inches by 3-1/2 inches).
What is an ATC, an ACEO and a Sketch Card?
They all have one thing in common--they are original art that measures 2-1/2 inches by 3-1/2 inches. ATC stands for Artist Trading Cards, and they are usually traded to other artists. ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. These cards along with Sketch Cards are usually sold. They are a rapidly growing hobby and tons of fun!
