6H – Hosho Paper Sketch Pad, 9″ x 12″ – 48 sheets

This 48 sheet Hosho paper pad makes a great student sketch pad. Hosho paper is thick, strong, fluffy paper typically used for official documents, sketching and painting. Printmakers prefer its absorbency, strength and versatility. Painters like it for ink, watercolor and lettering. Hosho is also sometimes chosen for rubbing techniques.

While the name used to indicate it was a highly refined mulberry fiber paper, it now refers to the paper’s uses. One side has a smooth finish and the reverse has a rough finish. Not sized.
