Let’s talk about Pastel Paper

Paper is a fantastic medium to work on soft pastels, but selecting the one that’s perfect for you can be a challenge, as there’s plenty to choose from. Whether you choose your paper from availability, price or quality, whether you are an amateur or a professional, it boils down to what works best for you.

  1. I just used the new Unison pastel paper and was fascinated with how many layers it takes. I did a watercolor underpainting first. About how many layers will the paper allow for? Can you use fixative on it? Can you use an alcohol wash instead of water. What other mediums can you use on it besides water color, gouache, pastel? Can you use oil pastel and oil paints and would it be able to handle Gamsol solvent. I would love to see more demos, blogs on this paper.
    Thank you,
