I do not like this canvas. It claims to be good for watercolor techniques but the canvas buckles horribly with minimal water, the colors turn out dull, and layering is a pain. I get the impression that acrylic and oil painters would benefit from using this canvas, but certainly not watercolorists. If you also like outlining the basic shapes with a pencil and you want to erase the lines later, you cannot do so cleanly— there will always be marks left. The cost is not friendly either, especially given the horrible quality of this canvas. I tried to salvage it by using Sharpie markers which are alcohol based and so far, this canvas works like normal paper (which is cheaper!). I guess Fredrix could use some honesty in marketing their product. This is definitely not made with the watercolorist in mind. Don’t buy!
