This paper is great. I use it for colored pencil drawings and it's great. The color pops, the tooth is nice. It has a nice weight to it. Really good paper.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Too Coarse for Pastels
By John the Newby
from Denver, CO
As a newby pastelist, I bought the Canson Mi-Tientes pad as a relatively inexpensive way to develop my skills. I found, however, that the "vellum" side intended for pastels is way too textured to accept even soft pastels--I use Sennelier soft pastels. I was burning through my expensive pastels in a futile attempt to fill the depressions in the paper, with unsatisfactory results. I'm going to try the smooth side to see if it accepts pastels better, but my go-to surface will be Ampersand panels, which work great.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Redmond, OR
I just love the smooth side of this paper for soft pastel. I also love the range of colors that are available! However, I am not a fan of the textured side as it's tooth is just too rough and the pattern of the tooth is too repetitious, for my taste. Many times, the paper arrives damaged with thumbprints, folds and oil spots...so I always order two if I am in a hurry or if its for a time sensitive commission.
A good paper product for the price, & nice choice of colors.

I am using this product for a class I'm teaching. I have used it before and it is a good choice for beginners.
Good paper, excellent value
By Leica Mike

Toned paper makes for nice sketching outdoors. There is no blinding white page ruining your vision. I use colored pencils to pull the lights and darks on middle toned Mi-Tients papers and especially like the gray tones. Use a soft colored, pro grade pencil, like Faber Castell.

The canson paper is used in a portrait drawing session. The paper is excellent for quick pastelPortraits
from Capital District, New York
I'm a paper artist and I love the Canson Mi Tientes papers. It's thinner and and a much nicer texture than any card stock, but firm enough to stand up well in 3D structures. I like having the choice of the smoother or textured finish on each side of the paper, and the colors are always consistent.
