Uart is one of the most popular pastel papers in the United States. It is a sanded pastel paper which provides a reliable, quality surface for pastel artists. It is 300gsm, Ph neutral and acid free.
The paper is manufactured using a computer-controlled electrostatic coating process which provides an extremely consistent sanded surface.

The paper also accepts underpainting with oils, watercolour, inks and acrylic.
The paper is available in seven grades.
