Art Supplies Butchers Paper

Paper Artist - Sketch out YOUR Masterpiece with Bulky News

Did you know? Bulky news also known as Butchers paper was originally sold to butchers for the purpose of wrapping meat and fish.

 Looking to sketch a few ideas and want to use an inexpensive paper that is of good quality to do so? We have you covered; our supply of bulky news paper is perfect for getting your ideas down.

 Bulky news is a relatively thick paper that is off white in colour. It is the perfect paper for getting a sketch down, as the slightly textured surface is ideal for a variety of mediums such as colour pencil, charcoal, graphite, lead pencilpastel and more. It is a relatively inexpensive art paper and is available in a variety of sizes. For these reasons, many artists will prefer bulky news for sketching out their ideas prior to moving on to a final composition. It is a favoured paper in many drawing classes particularly life drawing when you need to draw a shape up quickly before the next pose and is known by many as a life drawing paper. It is not uncommon for bulky news to be purchased in large reams of 500+ sheets.

 It is available in 255x380mm, 380x510, 510x760, 760x1020, a4 (210x297), a3 (297x420) a2 (420x595) and a1 (595x840) sizes as well as 60 and 80gsm weights; it can be purchased as individual sheets, rolls of 100 or reams of 500 sheets. In addition to selling bulky news, we also sell quality cartridge drawing paper that can also be purchased as individual sheets and in reams. Bulky news is the paper artists’ love and is almost a staple item in any studio space. Because the paper is great value it is also ideal for covering table tops and having around the home for kids to draw on. It is seriously the most universal paper for sketching and art work in general that I know of, it can be used as kids drawing paper, painting paper as well as sketch paper for beginners, intermediate and professional artists.
