Art Spectrum Colourfix Pad has 12 sheets of coloured Pastel paper. The paper has a fine, deep tooth. It is a superb substrate for pastels, oil colours, acrylics, inks, oil pastels, gouache, watercolours and dry media such as charcoal and pencils. The natural, toothy surface will hold multiple layers of pastel without the need for fixative, allowing the velvet bloom and vibrant colour of pastel to be preserved. Erasing is also easy, simply lift off excess pastel with clear adhesive tape, brush off with a dry brush, or use a pencil eraser.
