Welcome to dickblick
The world’s most famous pastel paper is now available on Art Board!
French-made Mi-Teintes has a pronounced texture that holds substantial amounts of pigment. Available in a wide array of colors and sizes, Mi-Teintes has the highest cotton content for a colored art paper, which allows it to perform nicely with many mediums. It's the ultimate surface for pastels, charcoal, or conté crayon.
Advantages of Mi-Teintes Art Boards include a sturdier surface to work on and the elimination of the mounting step, since the papers are already mounted to the boards — ready to frame or exhibit! Both the papers and boards are acid-free and lignin-free.
Canson Mi-Teintes Paper complies with ISO 9706, which ensures optimal preservation and longevity.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
Handling Charge — When ordering sheets of paper or board larger than 18” x 24” in quantities of less than 10, a $3.00 per order handling fee applies. Paper or boards may be assorted to reach the quantity of 10.

Excellent support for colored pencils
By Missy the artist
from Ontario, Canada
Comments about Canson Mi-Teintes Board:
I typically use illustration boards for my colored pencil work, but I had a project that needed a colored ground, so I decided to try one of the Mi Teintes art boards. I ordered two, and used the "tobacco" colored one for my painting. I was initially worried about how heavily textured the boards were, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised! The finish accepts very heavy layering of multiple pencils, and the light-colored pencils can be almost completely opaque over it. I even did a little experimenting with graphitint and inktense pencils, and the light water washes didn't crinkle or warp the board at all. The water did permanently darken the board, however. I haven't decided what to use my other board for yet but I'm excited to work with this product again!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love to use the Canson Me Tientes pastel board because it is easier to work with than paper. I generally do larger art pieces, so it particularly suits my needs. It is excellent quality, but a smooth enough surface for my fine line work. My only regret is that it is not in more colors, other than just black and white. They used to have it in a cream color, which I miss.
Perfect for my purposes as a pastel artist!

Haven't used them yet but the packaging for sending was sub par. When they arrived I had to get out my eraser to erase stray marks. It would have been better if they had been wrapped in a piece of paper to keep them clean instead of just placed in a package which included pastels.
Canson Mi-Teintes Boards
By Art Cookie
from Dallas, TX
I love Canson paper but would really like the smoothe side rather than the more textured side of the paper. This board only uses the textured side. I found it to be difficult to use because of the constant problem with the small bumps of the paper showing. It definitely needs softer pastels if using this side. The great up side of the paper is that you can put in an underpainting with alcohol. The board allows for washes.

Mi-Tintes Board works well with gouache
from Winston-Salem, NC
I like using this board with gauche and color pencils. Because both have opaque color and almost seamless if not over done. Sometimes I simplify by using pencil and white gauche. When your subject matter is darker than the value of the of the board use your graphite pencils. Anything lighter use your white paint anything that is the same value as the board leave alone. This style of painting was used by Winslow Homer and he called this a sketch. It's simple and effective.
I'm using this product to create a pastel portrait. The extra support provided by the board makes working with this large sheet of paper very convenient. The surface of the paper is ideal for portraits with plenty details.
Exploring the possibilities
from West monroe, louisiana
This is a first time use with the board. It was recommended by another so I am just beginning to get a fell for the product. In attempting to cut its size I experienced some difficulty with the top coat wanting to separate. This may be due to my lack of ability with the mat board cutter so I also retain a judgement in that category.
When I brought this product home I was so excited. I hadn't heard a single negative review and I was hoping I wasn't going to be the exception. Well, luckily I wasn't. The product is the exact color displayed here on the website (I got the black mat board in the largest size), and the size was just what I expected it to be. As a first-time-buyer, I was really worried I was going to order something wrong or ill fitting to my needs, but Blick made it easy and delivered flawlessly. 10/10, I am DEFINITELY coming back here for my art supplies needs.

High-quality mat board reasonably priced
from Dundee, OR
Archival mat for custom framed photographic mounts. Physically and chemically stable, neutral. Good basic color selections, but the on-screen samples are very approximate and difficult to evaluate for a particular print until received. The White board is a good all-around mat for most prints; the Flannel mat was a perfect warm, light gray to frame one of my favorite hi-key prints (see sample). Surface texture is excellent, with no glare or distracting patterns.Dick Blick's excellent packaging ensured safe shipping in perfect condition (Houdini couldn't have escaped the box!)
