Bristol Paper

According to Strathmore, Bristol is any type of drawing paper that is glued together under pressure. This process form a multi pliable sheet of paper. Bristol is usually a stiff, strong surface to draw on. It does not require mounting. This paper comes with two felt sides. This allows an artists to draw on both sides of the paper. The name is based on a location.

People in Europe would send their finest papers to Bristol, England to have them pasted together. The Bristol papers come in two forms, smooth or vellum. This collection offers both types. Smooth paper is designed for pen and ink. It also works great for mechanical pencil, airbrush and markers. Vellums are ideal for graphite, colored pencils, crayons and pastels. I hope this little bit of information useful.
