Crescent Professional Grade Cold Press (NOT) Illustration Boards have a textured surface designed primarily for pencil, pastel, ink, airbrush, washes, light collage and wet media.
The textured surface of a Cold Press board permits the medium to be applied without fast absorption, which in turn allows the washes to blend smoothly. Made of 100% cotton fibre acid-free paper on a high quality board to create a balanced tension that prevents warping.
The difference between the Professional grade illustration board and the student grade illustration board:
Primarily the Professional Boards are thicker and constructed of a higher quality surface paper – 100% cotton fibre acid-free. They are more warp resistant and can accept more aggressive wash applications than the student boards.
