Question Confetti White-- Do you like it?

I've read that it's a decent paper for watercoloring. Any other opinions on it? I want a good paper for watercoloring AND using Craft inks on to show my customers. I've been using the Georgia-Pacific paper, but obviously don't want to demo that. And I hate Whisper White for using Craft ink on. (Love it for markers and Classic.) Thanks!

Hi Jessica, You might get more answers in the demo forum....
I love Confetti White....it's a great mix for using with classic and craft....AND it works well for watercolor techniques. I have lots of customers who order this regularly. I agree that ww and vv are perfect for classic inks, but the confetti's and naturals work so well with craft.

I worked with watercoloring on confetti white just yesterday. It worked great. My demo is going to order some watercolor paper for next time, but this was just fine....

I love it simply for those little flecks of color - sometimes I don't want a stark white card, but don't necessarily want a "background" per se, so this is a good alternative. Lovely stuff!!

Thanks, Kathy. I'm patiently waiting to be approved for the demo forum. But I appreciate any and all opinions here. I have some confetti paper from a different company and it bled like crazy. It must be made by a different paper manufacturer. Sounds like SU's is good stuff.

also, Jessica, if you have a problem with bleeding on the confetti, you might try stamping your image with stazon black or brown...

I so agree. My main reason for using confetti is the subtle flecks

I too like the subtle flecks, but I tend to abuse my CS with so many backgrounds that in the end no one can tell what I started with.

I think it is a great choice to have on hand for the days that I am less background happy.

I love the confetti white. Something I was shocked to see, the color difference between the GP paper and the SU Whisper White! I have always used GP, and never known much difference, but wow, is the whisper white, well...white! The GP has almost a grey hue to it next to the whisper white!

I love the added texture and color that it has in it...You can't go wrong with it that is for sure. It is very versatile.

I LOVE confetti white!!! I use it all the time...more than whisper white actually. It's great for watercoloring and for chalks! Stamp with stazon, not classic black though.

Confetti white is my very favorite paper. I watercolor on it all the time.

I think it gives your projects a different, softer look and matches Earth Elements colors great! And it seems to be a bit thicker. Try it, you'll like it!!!

I second that... flecks of color and I sometimes don't want to use bright white. I bought both confetti white and cream! Can't wait till they arrive!

I love confetti white. The little flecks bring a built in depth that is very attractive -- and I love the matching envelopes. But, I'm a huge fan of watercoloring on watercolor paper. You absolutely can do some light watercoloring on confetti white, but you can soak, abuse and generally run wild with watercolor paper!!! I say buy both.
