Today, I’m reviewing Hahnemühle’s Mixed Media Bamboo Pad, 3.1 x 4.1 in/8.0 x 10,5 cm size, with 10 sheets, and glued format.

Instead of my usual review, I’ve made a video.  Please, feel free to comment (constructively – I don’t mind criticism if it’s intended to help).  Do you like the video, or do you prefer the all-text review? And, I promise, the videos will get better as I get used to do them!

Especially, let me know if you aren’t able to view the video.

THE EXAMPLES

You’ll be seeing some of these examples done on video in upcoming reviews and I’ll be posting some later that I haven’t quite finished.

Every kind of pen, pencil and brush I could fit on one card – front & back.

Ginger horse & the Pinktrees – Technical Pen over watercolor over Permanent Marker.

Purplemania – Technical Pen, Color Brush pen, Permanent Marker, Mildliner, & Watercolor.

Dragonblood Tree – Permanent Marker and Technical Pen over watercolor.

Overall
Hahnemühle’s Mixed Media Bamboo Pad in 3.1 x 4.1 in/8.0 x 10,5 cm size is great for carry, and if you’re like me, it just looks cute.  The paper is 125 lb, so sturdy and it is truly mixed media, working well with a variety of mediums.
It holds up well to wet mediums, and I like that watercolor has a nice flow on this paper, but you also have a great deal of control.  
It is a ‘rough’ paper as most mixed media is, but it strides the fine line where watercolor works well, and so do pens and pencils.

Hahnemühle sent me this pad of Mixed Media Bamboo paper for review.  I have received no other consideration, and all opinions expressed are my own.

  1. Love love loved this video. Very informative. Love your artwork! My only comment would be to hold your artwork more still, and a little longer on camera so we can get a good look at it because it is so wonderful. Thank you for posting stills of them on the blog. You really inspire me.
