This Premium Velour paper from Hahnemühle is acid-free and archival. The velour paper surface is produced using inert synthetic fibres on an acid-free backing sheet which prevents yellowing. The synthetic fibres give the surface a velvety feel which has sufficient tooth to hold soft pastel, as well as oil pastel, willow charcoal, compressed charcoal, Conte crayons, sanguine or soft pencils. Velour paper is specifically recommended for soft pastels as the longer surface fibres complement soft edge work. Velour is very popular with portrait and animal portrait artists. This paper is also suitable for gouache. The surface does not shed or develop loose particles when drawing and is uniform for crisp, responsive strokes. The fibre colour is lightfast & age-resistant, making it resistant to fading.

This sensational, quality artist paper has shown its versatility by performing beautifully when layering pastel pigments, using wet in wet techniques and mixed media work. Hahnemühle Pastel Velour paper is produced in Germany.
