Welcome to dickblick
Sennelier applies finely ground, pH neutral vegetable flakes by hand to a 200 lb, pH neutral board stock, creating a paper that is slightly abrasive, yet has a perfectly smooth and uniform tooth.
This greatly enhances pigment adhesion, so that less fixative is required. It offers an excellent surface for any dry media.
Individual sheets measure 19" × 25" (48 cm × 63 cm). Use of wet media not recommended.
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.
Note — Color may vary due to the unique production of this product.
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.

Multiple layers on sand-like paper
By Phoenix Cloud
from Wrightwood, CA
Comments about Sennelier La Carte Pastel Card:
I've been working on a pastel portrait and like the fact that this paper accepts many layers. I've layered soft pastels and medium/soft pencils over them for details and the paper accepts all well. The only downside is how coarse it feels to touch. I like blending with my fingers and by the end of the day my fingers feel really dry to the point where I can see some dry skin flakes; haven't gotten to a point where my fingers hurt but, with repeated use, that can be an issue.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the toughest but most forgiving card ever!
By Kate, the Brit.
from Quince Il.
I have used similar pastel cards but they don't stand up to my abuse and quickly lose their tooth. I am far from the best pastelist and make many errors. This card allows me to wipe off my mistakes with minimal damage and apply fresh colour without losing a beat. The range of colours available are great for both portraits & landscapes. I can not be more pleased with a product.

Another great shopping at Blick's

The supplies I order are essential for my business. Great stock, great prices, timely shipping, and I damaged delivery! Can be any better than this? 5 star smile from me
Resilient and Forgiveable
By mare the bear
This is my favorite paper as it is very capable of many layers. I can change my mind about an element and erase it and do over it again. No other paper I have used is as good for this. I really like it!
I ordered the wrong Sennelier pastel card
from Houston TX
Not knowing that the "light" grey is actually too light for my taste, I should have selected grey or dark grey instead. The medium tooth is a little too coarse for me, but I think I can get used to it with enough practice. Again, I should have selected a finer tooth grade.
Excellent, just what I expected.

My favorite surface
This is my favorite surface in terms of texture. It's very smooth. I love the way pastels glide over it and blend in with each other. It holds many layers of pastels. The onlt thing I don't like is that even a drop of water damages the surface boyond repair.

The colors are darker than i had envisioned. The quality is excellent. The light grey is actually more of a medium green grey. I had to turn the card over and use the white side, which is more of a laid surface. rating would be higher except for the color.

I'm returning to pastel after several years away from it and I'm really looking forward to working with this stock. It seems durable, great color and first few attempts show it's great with holding color too..
