This is a peculiar thing....
This is a peculiar thing. Very peculiar.
I bought it on a whim without reading the description. Just needed a pocket pad. When I started using it, strange things began to happen. My pencil was suddenly very dark. Sometimes the pencil point would grip the page in a very odd way. I took a close look. The paper had a very fine, very even tooth which was causing the pencil point to be shaped into a razor sharp chisel point. The chisel edge would then grip the paper, but without piercing it. Sometimes it would "stretch" a thin groove into the paper.
I came back to the Jet Pens site and read the description. Hmmm. "Stone Paper."
This "paper" is plastic. The stone powder must be what gives this paper its very fine tooth. Unlike drafting mylar, this material stretches. You can actually pull and shape it. The tooth doesn't seem to be just a surface treatment. Erasing does not polish the paper as it does with mylar.
I tried it with a fountain pen. The ink bleeds more than I expected. Spreads, really, it never bleeds through the sheet, only outward from the stroke. It seems to bleed more on the un-gridded side of the paper. I don't have any other ink pens handy. I have come colored pencils. The paper takes the color very evenly. If I use too much pressure, the paper will stretch. If I am careful, I can make very even gradient tones. Nice.
I can't stop playing with this very peculiar thing.

The "paper" is amazing,...
The "paper" is amazing, I too didn't read much about it when I got it. Turns out the sheets are made of plastic... when you write with graphite on it, the graphite appears darker. It's very smooth to write on, I keep it in my pocket for notes and such. I come up with excuses to write on it, it's by far one of the more unique writing surfaces I have come across. I could get any little pad but I probably won't after enjoying this experience. Although a little pricy, you get what you pay for.
