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.

My favorite surface
Comments about Sennelier La Carte Pastel Card:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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..
My "go to" pastel paper
By Nancy KD
from Virginia Beach, Va.
The "tooth" on this paper holds the pastel without being too rough.The colors of the papers available cover anything you might needAll in all, it's a favorite!
I love this paper!
This paper has an excellent tooth for multiple layers and it comes in a great selection of colors for landscapes, portraits, still lifes, etc. It may be too toothy for doing portraits if you want a super smooth finish but you can blend fairly smooth after several layers have been applied. It is great for looser more expressive paintings which I like to do. I just completed 10 pastel paintings using Sennelier pastel board and Sennelier pastels, and I am very pleased.

La Carte is my paper of choice. Dick Blick has the best prices and great service.

One of My Favorite Pastel Papers!
By Palmetto Painter
from Charleston, SC
I use Sennelier La Carte pastel paper when I don't want to do an underpainting, since this paper does not hold up under wet media. It has a wonderful tooth with a nice texture and holds many layers of pastel. I especially like the warm colors for landscapes.
The best for me
from Ventura ca
I use this laCarte as a professional artist and in teaching my pastel classes Easy and the perfect texture
LaCarte Pastel Card
By Sue the star gazer
from Mntville, NJ
I had only used pastelmat in the past so found using LaCarte a little hard to adjust to but ended up really liking the effects that it gave me for the chosen subject. It allowed me to achieve the slightly misty feeling that I was looking for. I now have more subjects for the LaCarte card.
Excellent quality product
La Carte is simply superb! A pleasure to work with. Top notch results. Fabulous for both pastel and charcoal. Two thumbs way up!
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.
