    Experience: PROFESSIONAL

    This is great printmaking paper. Prints easier than any other paper for me. However, as a drawing paper it is terrible. Is like drawing on newsprint and erasers either don't work because they get covered with fibers or three eat the paper up or usually both. Just imagine a thick piece of newsprint. That's how it handles all media. Would have better luck with a wash on a paper towel. Regular weight BFK is much better but still makes a pretty poor surface compared to watercolor paper or brist board. Just my two cents as it is advertised as a good drawing paper. It's not. *****UTRECHT RESPONSE***** Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us. Although the Rives paper does have a soft surface that does not lend well to erasure, it remains a perennial favorite among artists working in pastels, charcoal, graphite and other drawing media.
