UArt Sanded Pastel Paper
UArt Pastel Paper is a premium sanded drawing paper that is the choice of many professional pastel, colored pencil, and charcoal artists. Neutral in color and medium-light in value, your colors and values will immediately pop. You can be sure the grit will hold on to your art, no matter how many layers you apply or whether you use hard or soft pastels. There’s no excess flaking, and fading is eradicated. Your medium stays in place as you intended. Other papers may lose tooth, but UArt sanded pastel paper clings to your artwork and never lets it go.
This pH neutral and acid free paper accepts all wet media — including alcohol, mineral spirits, turpentine, and watercolor — making it ideal for layering and underpainting. The tooth will hold multiple layers of dry media with the need for fixatives, yet the low profile texture allows for easy erasing.
400 Grade Paper - A favorite grade of many professional pastel artists, and ideal for those trying UArt paper for the first time. Slightly rougher than the 600 grade, this mid-grade tooth accepts many layers and shows a little texture.
600 Grade Paper - This sanded pastel paper features a very fine grit which is perfect for those with a focus on highly detailed work. Also ideal for colored pencil and graphite.
