Water Colour Glued Pads

Glued watercolour pads are not to be confused with watercolour blocks, or watercolour spiral pads - these are pad that are glued on one side only.  The pages can be pulled out of the pad very easily without damaging either the sheet being removed or the remainder of the pad.  They are suited to all kinds of painting situations - from painting at home, to painting in your studio or art class, or painting out of doors.  The versatility of a glued pad makes it an ideal gift for any enthusiastic watercolour painter.  At Jackson’s we sell a range of pads to suit painters of all abilities, the chart below should help determine the best pads for your needs.
