My first experience was with the Raffine sketchbooks. I decided to buy the packages of large sheets because I like to bind my own art journals. In the process I discovered it is great for use as a substrate for watercolor or acrylic paintings in larger sizes. You can fold, then wet the fold and easily tear the size you need. It does need to be stored flat, like all art papers.
