Has anyone used bark paper with their pastels? Do you have to do anything different with it, like have a watercolor underpainting before you start using pastels. I have a sheet and didn't want to start anything with it until I did some research on it.

I had a quick look on-line as I'd not come across it before....looks to nice to cover! If it's the one I saw, that is! Does it have a backing paper?

Deirdre,
By backing paper, do you mean is it mounted to something? It isn't mounted to anything, it is a thicker paper and looks really nice. I had heard people say it's great for a lot of different mediums and really nice for pastels.
