Pastel Premier Sanded Paper Assorted Packs contains 6 or 8 sheets per package – an archival quality paper for the pastel artist! Pastel Premier is produced on 100% cotton, acid-free paper. The unique surface is created by double priming the 100% cotton base paper, then coating with an aluminum oxide abrasive. This produces an ideal, evenly coated surface for pastel painting. A final seal layer is applied to the primed and abrasive coated sheet to make the surface extremely durable and able to withstand almost any measure of scrubbing and reworking. The paper works with a wide range of wet media including water, mineral spirits, and alcohol (heavy use of alcohol NOT recommended – may soften surface) for under-painting.
The 8×10″ Intro Pack includes 6 sheets: White-fine grit, White-Medium grit, Buff, Italian Clay (warm neutral gray), Terracotta, and Slate (dark, cool gray).
The 9×12″ pack includes 8 sheets: 1 x White-fine grit, 2 x White-Medium grit, 1 x Buff, 2 x Italian Clay (warm neutral gray), 1 x Terracotta, and 1 x Slate (dark, cool gray).
