 I'd like to hear from any one who has tried the new Canson Mi Tientes Touch. Can you compare it to any other pastel surfaces that  you've used?

Susan, I have used Mi-Tientes Touch paper with good success. I like that it is not as gritty as the others. It blends nicely. Easy to work on. It's a keeper for me. By the way, your work is lovely, beautiful color. It must be beautiful where you live. No lack of inspiration there.

 Thank you Anita for your response. I will have to try it. Your work is lovely and so I certainly value your opinion. I typically work on either Colourfix or Uart paper. I like the tooth, and the way colors can be 'skimmed' over one another, as well as multiple layers applied. I don't spray my work so I like that these paper 'grab' the pastel and there is less dust to fall onto the mat.

Happy Painting,

susan

 Hi Susan,  I find it similiar to colourfix sheets, it takes a few layers of pastel before it fills, I havn't tried fixative or under painting yet, maybe save some experiments for the sample book,  I posted the piece in my gallery 

regards

Dan

 Don, Thank you for your response....I will have to try this paper, it sounds similar to the surfaces I know and like, which are Art Spectrum colourifx and Uart. You work is very nice, which piece was done on the MiTientes Touch?
