Can I use water colour on this paper?
Thank you for your enquiry.
The Mi-Teintes pastel paper is a traditional pastel paper with a textured side and a smoother side for dry mediums. You can use watercolours on the paper, but it is not sized (made with an ingredient used to make the paper less absorbent) in the same way as watercolour paper is, so the paint will be absorbed into the paper. Many of the transparent colours will not show up very well on the coloured surface and you will experience the paper cockling with the addition of the wet medium.
Is this a Canson paper
Thank you for your enquiry, Yes, this is Canson Mi-Teintes Pastel Paper. Which has a textured surface on one side and a much smoother surface on the other.
