Ideal for artists looking for a less toothy pastel surface!
Art Spectrum Colourfix Smooth Pastel Paper has a surface that is less abrasive than Colourfix Coated Pastel Paper. Developed in part with the manufacturers of PanPastel Artists' Painting Pastels, Colourfix Smooth still holds multiple pastel layers but in a more gentle fashion. What's more, the surface won't cause excessive damage to PanPastel Sofft tools or fingertips (when used for blending).
Colourfix Smooth Pastel Paper can be used successfully with practically all media — pastels, charcoal, pencils, oils, acrylics, gouache, inks, silverpoint, and even watercolor. The smooth yet toothy surface is ideal for pastels, pencil, or charcoal, as it will hold multiple overlays of color without the need to fix between layers.
The unique, fine tooth surface is produced by screen printing Art Spectrum Colourfix acrylic primer onto a heavyweight watercolor paper. The absence of fixative allows the velvet bloom and vibrant pastel colors to be preserved. Apply a final light spray of fixative if desired.
Available in a variety of lightfast colors, this paper is acid-free. It weighs 230 lb (340 gsm).

Do not buy
I bought this one thinking that I could get finer details and a smoother finish on animal portraits. This paper is awful. Holds one layer of color, if that, and if you try to blend, it makes your pastels transparent. I have the brown paper and I can still see the color of the paper under my pastel. And since it only takes one layer, you can't fix it. You could put a second layer if it is sharp lines that won't be blended. I will never buy this again. Spend the extra money and buy pastelmat or uart sanded paper.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
