Strathmore Toned Paper Pads
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I choose the correct pad?
Start by deciding what medium you want to work with. Papers are designed to work best when used with the appropriate medium. If you are going to be using different mediums consider purchasing a mixed media pad.
How do I know what size pad to buy?
That is up to you. 9"x12" is a nice place to start. Big enough to work on but not so big that it is overwhelming.
