Default Amuse Studio -white card stock ??

Just wondering what can you compare Amuse studio white card stock to? I have so far used SU whisper white, neenah solar crest, GKD light weight, georgia pacific. And what is the weight of their white card stock? How does it work with colored pencils/copics?

A Muse Studio "Sugar" cardstock is 80 lb. I can't really compare it to those you mention as I don't have them. However, I do use it often with alcohol markers and colored pencils (and pencils with Gamsol) and it works well for me.

I appreciate the question - but now I'm curious and maybe I'll gather a few different brands of cardstock and do a comparison with various media .

I have a couple of those cardstocks you mentioned and here is my comparison:

AMuse Sugar vs. GKD light weight - almost identical in both thickness and texture
AMuse Sugar vs. Georgia Pacific - Sugar is a touch thicker, much smoother and is a much brighter white

I am not a huge colorer, so I can't comment too technically, but I have used both mediums with this paper and it works fine.
