When I work in pastel, I use different papers for varied results. I do this to keep things interesting and also when I want a specific end result based on the subject that I am painting.
The manufactured papers that I use right now are Uart 400 grit, and Pastel Premiere. However, I also enjoy making my own textured surface. If you are interested in making your own surface, here is a short video explaining how you can do just that. At the end of the video, you will see some of my completed work, so stay till the end. : )
Happy to have you here. This is where you will see work in progress, tips about making art, seeing art, and enjoying art. You will also see ways to live life like an artist.
