Welcome to dickblick
Rarely are card stock pastel supports available to the artist in a pad. The La Carte pad offers twelve sheets of heavyweight, professional quality paper board with a finely ground coating of cork and vegetable flakes providing a uniform, toothy surface that grabs and holds even the softest pastels.
The pad is top side glue bound for easy sheet removal and includes two sheets each of six assorted neutral colors. Paper is acid-free and lightfast. A beautiful surface for dry media applications. 200 lb (360 gsm).

Love this stuff
from KC MO
Like "Gremlins" you can't get it wet but it handles pastels beautifully. I put it in the same class as the top sanded papers.
Great product and great service

love the surface, really holds the medium well, I can layer and layer without loss of hold. HATE the binding...really hard to get the sheets out of the backing tablet. for some reason Sennelier pads are the worst.

Best sanded surface for Pastel Portraits
By R. Hope
from Geneva, IL
I have used many sanded surfaces for pastel however the La Carte gives a reality to the portrait, that no other surface can replicate. Multiple layers seem endless, the endurance of the surface is a work horse. The dark blue color sets up a wonderful drama to the subject & skin tones. The sanded surface is perfectly pitched & not too heavy or too light. It was a delightful surprise and wonderful find for a sometimes forgotten, steadfast & long produced product. The product has increased in cost quite a bit over the last year, which is too bad.

This stuff is fabulous. It seems there is no limit to the amount of pastel it can hold. It is easy to work and can be blended with fingertips without leaving a layer of skin behind. The only disadvantage is that it cannot tolerate any moisture whatsoever, so those of you who insist on underpainting are out of luck. The slightest little dot of moisture will cause that area to lift off of the backing material and that can be difficult to repair. This is the only reason I didn't rate it as best in its category. I recently bought a pad on sale from Blick and saved nearly 45%.
While Sennelier Soft Pastels were originally created for Edgar Degas, these beautiful100% pure pigment sticks are available for those who want brilliant color and velvety smooth lay-down.
