Strathmore Bristol Vellum Pad 12×9″
Bristol generally describes a heavyweight drawing paper. Bristol sheets provide a stiff, strong surface to work on without the need for mounting. The term Bristol derives from the early days of European papermaking when mills would send their finest papers to Bristol, England to be pasted together to form heavyweight drawing sheets.
Our 300 Series Bristol paper is a popular choice among many artists because of the quality paper at a very reasonable price. It comes in a number of pad sizes, loose sheets, and large rolls. It is a ‘bristol weight’ at 100lb. (270gsm), and is perfect for finished art. Look for it in smooth and vellum surfaces.
Weight: 100 lb. (20″ x 26″ x 500 sheets) 270 g/m2
Surface: Bristol Vellum
- Bristol Vellum – great for graphite, colored pencil, charcoal, pastel, and crayon. The surface has peaks and valleys which grab dry media such as graphite. More even shading and deeper tones can be achieved on a vellum surface.
