I'm very impressed by this. It's thick and not overly spongy, so it's still a fairly firm surface that doesn't squish too much. The colors are deep and don't run or fade. It's very durable and high-quality and I'm expecting to use it for a very long time. Very very high quality especially for the price. If you do close-up or table work for any amount of time, you should invest in one of these.
P.S. I would buy a larger one if they were made. Just saying.
