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
