FAQs about Drawing Paper & Pads

Drawing paper, as the same suggests, is a type of paper used specifically for drawing. Normally used by drawers, draftsmen or sketchers.

Charcoal or pastel paper is the best for charcoal drawing, or a fine toothed paper is better suited to adhere the charcoal and creates less dust.

The ideal paper weight for graphite drawing is over 80 lbs. (120 gsm). Because it can withstand pressure from the pencil better, heavier paper is preferable for drawing. Thinner paper will be considerably easier to tear and ruin your work.
