Is this velour paper and if not what is the difference between velour and this paper?
The paper in the SAA pad is a traditional pastel paper surface. Made from two colours of the Fabriano Tiziano pastel paper. Our pastel paper has a little texture which is not too intrusive but allows the pastel to adhere to the surface.
Velour is a unique surface, a little like velvet. It grips the pastels and offers soft lines. you can easily build up layers and it does not need fixing when finished. It lends itself really well to furs and soft textures.
Thank you for your question.
