View Full Version : A question about using papryus

01-03-2006, 10:45 PM
Has anyone had any experience using papryus with pastels ( or any other mediums)? Just recieved several sheets of papryus and would like any information on painting on this surface. Thanks for any help.


PS. Just a comment on suede or velour paper. I have been a big fan of velour for pastel painting, but just finished working on a painting and when I turned it around and give it a whump, most of the pastel fell off. This is the first time that this has happened to me. I think that it has a lot to do with the real soft pastels. This painting was done with mostly MV's and a few GA's, both of which I really like to use. I think that the really soft pastels will not stay in or on the velour. All of my previous paintings were painted using some of the harder pastels.

Bumping this back up to the top . . .

Can anybody help? I've not used papyrus, but it does have an interesting texture.
