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).

Comments about Sennelier La Carte Pastel Card Pads:
This paper is the perfect size for 11" x 14" drawings. It has the perfect gripping surface to layer colors. You don't need to spray fixative when using this paper. Great color selection. Cons: not friends with water. Plain air in the rain would not end well. And if you blow your work to remove dust spit can reallly damage the paper- so don't do that.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best paper for soft pastels

Best to achieve vibrant color with very little paper showing through

This product is not for me
from Milwaukee, WI
This surface is too rough for my pastel style (I prefer Ingres paper). I guess they make this kind of "sand paper" to boost up the consumption of pastel colors and so their sale :))).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I like it
I like the colors and I like the tooth.
Holds the pastels well. Excellent selection of colors.
from Orange County, NY
The surface holds the pastels well, making it easy to layer. Great for floral or any piece where you need to keep your colors alive and pure.

A Brand to Trust
from San Antonio, TX
I recently shifted from Oil Pastels to dabble in Soft Pastels and in spite of the price, decided to order the Sennelier paper pack simply because it made my favored brand of Oil Pastels. I don't regret it. Having initially tried the Soft Pastels on paper from an inexpensive sketch book, I was not at all pleased with the result. This paper from Sennelier made all the difference - the tooth hangs on to the layers of pastel but still allows blending. My first impression was that the paper felt dusty, but concerns that the detrius from the sanded paper would have a negative effect on the finished product proved to be unfounded. Excellent paper, excellent results, great selection of colors that are also available as open stock in larger sizes. I just wish that the product information stated which colors are in the pack instead of forcing me to compare the paper to re electronic representations in order to figure it out.

I love this pastel surface!

This surface is a pleasure to work on. It really holds the pastel, and because of the color, it helps to unify the piece. Worth a try!
Favorite pastel surface
By JC Art
from Bradford, NH
This is by far the best pastel paper I have used. Plenty of tooth for layering. Very sturdy. Love the different colors included in the pad. I've tried many other papers, but always return to this one. #sweepstakes
