To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this to use when sketching in the field, and it works just fine for that. It's flat and smooth, the clips are good, and the rubber band is nice and sturdy.
The only problem that I encountered was when I did some watercolor washes over my ink sketches. To do so, I first taped down the edges of my paper. I applied few washes, and the next day, I removed the tape... and it took some of the surface of the board with it. Now I have some areas of the board that are not so flat and smooth. I was using standard artist's masking tape... nothing crazy. Oh well. Still decent for the price.
Bought this because I needed a smaller board than I use for other orojects. This board looks almost identical to my karger one (which I love). Ut this one has a cheap clip that doesnt hold paoer smoothly where it grips. Other than that it s fine.
Board is smooth and easily carried with the handle. Light weight and good clip. Only problem is the artist tape I use to secure the picture I’m working on makes a fuzzy place on the surface of the board when removed. Considering the art work is not harmed by the tape I found this a little disconcerting. It’s a soft fuzziness so I’m hoping it doesn’t present a problem with the surface for colored pencil.
