Product Questions and Answers

Is the 500 series Strathmore illustration board cold-press or hot-press?

- Asked by Nina Snyder on 05-Jan-13

These are actually meant for illustration and not watercolor, so it is neither. However, it has a moderate amount of tooth.

I use this product because it is 100% cotton. Either side can be used. I paint in oils on this board. The board can easily be split in half to create two thinner boards. I split the board when I need to have the board scanned for illustrations that are going to be put on a laser scanner for print production. It fits the scanning drum nicely. The tooth of the cold press board is just right for painting. I love this stuff.

I have not used this product yet however it came highly recomended which is why I ordered it. I was extremely pleased with the extra careful way it was packed. It came in perfect shape which was another reason MisterArt.com was recommended to me. Thanks I look forward to doing further business with you.

I study Interior Design online while living in a small town, so I rely on the internet to get all of the supplies I need. My illustration board arrive unbent! I can't even guarantee that when I buy something at the store and bring it home.
Rated by: Eva S. in Somewhere, NJ
A wonderful alternative to using oil paints over watercolor (prefixed). The board is smooth and stays firm. The shipment was super quick and the board extremely well protected. A nice surprise.
Rated by: Shannon G. in Savannah, NY
The board came shipped with no problems, no flaws whatsoever.
