PastellFix is a 170 gsm paper with a cotton rag content which has been designed spacifically for pastels. The paper has a very soft and flat, felt type feel but is very strong at the same time. Very little pressure is needed for the pastel to settle into the paper which is excellent for blending. The flat surface also allows for fine lines without the stroke breaking as can happen on rougher surfaces. The flat surface also provides a good base for pastel pencils. A good degree of layering can also be achieved before the paper is exhausted, five or six layers is achievable. Pads are available in three sizes, 24x32cm, 30x40cm, 36x48cm. Each pad has 12 sheets of Pastellfix with two each of Ivory, Sand, Navy, Steel Grey, Dark Grey, and Black.
