Gummed sketch pads like these offer you with a secure, easy to work with and generic sketch pad, perfect for rough sketches, practice work and life drawings. The gummed pads use a combination of glue and tape in the binding, which ensures that the pages are secured, with what is known as the gum, and won’t fall out. However, should you choose to remove the pages from the pad, this is done more easily thanks to the gum, and does not result in damage or tearing to the page. These are good quality sheets, giving you a working surface of either A4 or A3 size, depending on your individual preferences and we do supply both. The page quality itself is 130gsm, which of course means that these are a good, high quality option that will handle most of your work rather well. While graphite, charcoal and ink are all fine and will settle very nicely in the paper, the use of watercolours with these sketch pads is not recommended, duty to the destructive nature of the wet media like paints and watercolours on paper. Larger amounts of particularly fluid inks should also be avoided to prevent damage to the paper, limiting to the use of fine liners and other such pens.
