Cutting Sanded Pastel Sandpapers

The best method is with a STANLEY type knife, cutting from the back

of the paper, the blade won’t blunt so quickly.

A number of years ago we were asked to stock a paper called

BS119  P500 which is stearate coated, within a short period of time

artists complained that pastel pigment came off the paper, so we no longer stock them as they are designed to be non clogging and will Shed pigment.

Identifying Sanded Pastel Sandpapers, see grit type below.

The grit count does not identify the paper type.

544C3 is the type, 400 is the grit count, Grit type Aluminium Oxide.

 713E P400 Ersta Paper

The surface colour can be changed by thinning acrylic paint with Talens Acrylic

Medium (or a similar product) direct from the bottle or with a little water added before mixing into the paint. Don’t thin the paint with water only.

Washing pastel off this paper

Ersta P400 is not waterproof but it will withstand a quick clean with water, artists have been successful in doing this, experiment.
