Welcome to dickblick
This premium-quality, neutral-colored sanded pastel paper combines quality, consistency, and durability.
The 240 grade has the largest tooth available. The 400 and 500 grade have a moderate "bite," while the 600 and 800 grade are super fine. All grades accept many layers of hard or soft pastels, yet also work well with other mediums.
The low-profile surface allows for easy erasing. Each sheet is pH neutral and acid-free.
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.

Comments about UArt Sanded Pastel Paper:
I usually use Wallis Museum grade sanded paper, which is not available much anymore.I bought 2 small pieces of UArt sanded paper in 400 and 500 grit to try. The 400 is most like what I am used to. However, the quality of the paper itself does not seem professional. It feels and looks like a piece of sandpaper for sanding. I also bought a piece of Hand Book Premier Pastel sanded paper and the difference in quality is obvious. That paper is heavy and solid and feels like the Wallis.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This product works great
from Cheshire County, New Hampshire
I used 400 grade. This is the first time that Ive used this type of pastel paper. What an amazing difference. If you want heavy rich pastels this is the paper for you. This is the first time that Ive tried pastels since I was a teen. The experience was so discouraging that I haven't tried it since - until now. What a difference this paper makes. This is pastel painting! I would buy this paper even if it wasn't on sale.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Excellent packaging for shipment
By Rural Artist

I am very pleased with the product and am especially impressed with the extra care that is given to the packaging used for shipment of large papers. Shipping fee was very reasonable. I live in a rural area and Blick has become my main art supply source.
My go-to sanded paper for soft and oil pastels
Uart became my go-to sanded paper after having tried about 6 different brands. I use the 400-500-600 grit for PanPastels and oil pastels as well. The paper is predictable and easy to work with. It takes layer after layer after layer... And those fine grits allow finger blending!
U-Art Pastel Paper
U-Art pastel paper is wonderful to use with soft pastel because it holds the pastels and also allows for layering of colors.
UArt Sanded Pastel Paper
By Evie the artist
from Petaluma, California
All of my veteran pastel artist friends and instructor Gerald Boyd recommended UArt sanded 400 grit pastel paper. I spent 2 days with 7 other SWA artists in a pastel painting workshop at the SWA Gallery near San Francisco. I checked into other pastel paper brands and UArt was the best price for the kind of paper required for the workshop. I had a great time using my new pastels from Blick on my UArt pastel paper, however, I started blending using the tip of my middle finger and sanded off my finger prints! I learned quickly that pastels are to be layered, not blended. I'm actually accustomed to blending using tortillons from Blick, but I later found that they knock the pastel off the sanded paper. Mr. Boyd offered samples of 500 and 600 grit UArt pastel paper to experiment with. It was all so much fun!

At first blush the UArt pastel surface is a winner
from Charlevoix, Mi.
Great tooth for hard and soft pastelsI really liked the result from using UArt paper, fresh Nupastels and finishing with Terry Ludwig soft pastels.

SWITCHED pastel papers
from Quartzsite, AZ
My favorite paper was discontinued, I am still getting used to this brand, but it seems to be about the same. and has a few more options in the grit of the paper.
LESS THAN ENTHUSIASTIC
from southeast , KS
The surface of Uart papers are okay, but I'm having difficulty getting them to lay flat. even taped down they still want to bow in the middle giving me give in the surface where I do not want it. It works better if mounted but that is added expense. I don't like the Uart boards because they have an edge that makes them too large for standard sizes. Pastelists don't use mats much anymore.
