Discover the freedom and delicacy of pastel with Vic's extended Pastel Velour Pad range!

Each pad features 10 sheets of 260gsm (120lbs) velour pastel paper and is ideal for pastel artists of all levels. The fine hairs of the velour surface provide a deep tooth, meaning it can take layer after layer of pastel without muddying. The delicate softness of the surface also means colour can be applied evenly with the pressure of application altering the opacity of colour that is created.

Developed in collaboration with the renowned pastel artist, this pad represents the true choice of the professionals. Though Vic enjoys velour for the many fur textures it allows him to create, his velour pads are ideal for any subject of work, including landscape and portraiture.

As versatile as they are eye-catching, the pads come in two colour ranges - sandy and light grey, and black and dark grey, and also two sizes, regular measuring 250mm x 350mm and large at 350mm x 500mm.
  1. A treat Review by Danielle French

    I've dithered about ordering this as I thought painting on velour paper was an extravagance but well worth the money (Posted on 10/04/2013)

  2. An Interesting surface,not that easy to use, but after a bit of practice,it is easier. Review by Debbie Allerton
    Rating

    Very difficult to remove mistakes,so I found the best thing was to trace your image onto tracing paper,soft pastel on the back of your drawing,then transfer your image ( in my case two sheep). Also pastel pencils do not work as well as soft pastel.On the positive side, it gives a lovely fur effect,or wooly sheep effect! You must keep your fine features fairly large,as getting a small and sharp feature is a bit difficult.

    I have done many animal commissions over the years, always on Canson Mi teintes or Murano,but I will definitely persevere with the velour. (Posted on 10/04/2013)

  4. Great, but maybe include some black Review by Rose Woodland
    Rating

    I am a pencil artist who has recently tried pastels for the first time. This paper was a new experience and I loved it, it makes soft blending of colours so easy. I love Vic\'s work, and would have liked a couple of black sheets to try out his other examples.
