View Full Version : The same velour paper?

11-22-2003, 05:07 AM
I search the internet to find velour paper.

The search engine gave a list of IT supply shops those sell something called velour paper too but for inkjet or photo. Since I have never seen any velour paper so I doubt whether it is the same thing and can be used for pastel?

Does any of you have experience about this?

www.DickBlick.com advertised on WC sell Velour Paper...... not sure if they ship to your part of the world though..... the paper you may be talking of is perhaps a type of paper to print out on that gives the effect of velour

Why do you need it? I used it once, and found that if you bang it by accident, all the pastel drops off! I think it is not worth the money.

You make beautiful pastels, using regular papers, so why worry about something like this, which is highly suspect imo.

Ifyou are determined to try it, Hahnemuhle is one manufacturer.
