Folio Paper is good for just about anything
from Trappe, MD
Comments about Legion Folio Paper:
Folio Paper figures greatly in my collages in which I apply a wash of acrylic paint thinly, then abuse the paper with various tools by scraping and rolling serated edge tools on it and making marks with paintbrush ends, then color it with pastels, use fixative and add more pastel. Then I tear the paper into strips and adhere it to the backing paper which is a full sheet of Folio paper with acrylic gel medium. I buy Folio in quantity packs so that I won't run out. It holds up like a champ through all the treatment.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My Go-To Paper
This is my go-to paper for lino printing, running through my inkjet printer for a nicer finish, bookbinding with heavy paper and antique photographic printing processes. It's a great value and super flexible across my many art-making activities.

drawing and painting with oil pastels
from dickinson, texas
I use this product for drawing and painting with oil pastels. I apply a very dilute acrylic emulsion based medium (about a tbl spoon medium to about 4 ozs of water) as a primer. Then I apply a heavy layer of strong pigment gouache or water color followed by some basic drawing and washes of paint, ink, graphite, or what ever to set up general basis of image.Then I bring out the oil pastels gradually building up layers to form a oil/wax film or color/medium. I usually start out with inexpensive pastels that have higer wax content, and then bringing in more expensive type with higer oil and pigment content. I build up heavy impasto and heavy marks in the upper surfaces. I add details or finer work with high pigment pastels in the final applications. The result is much like a heavily work oil painting with encaustic like effects.I am beginning to experiment with oils and alkyds to the pastel work.
