Sketchbooks and paper pads are essential for every artist. Ideas often take shape here. Use the Amsterdam Black Books or to create your first drafts – with a pencil, fineliner or an Amsterdam marker. Or choose Amsterdam’s special art pad with waterproof synthetic paper. It's strong, smooth and tear resistant. If you want to use acrylic paint on paper, Amsterdam offers paper pads with specially prepared paper that works perfectly with Amsterdam Acrylic Paint and Acrylic Markers.
