This Clairefontaine Pastelmat paper gives your artwork longevity without the need to use fixative and is a true innovation with its smooth cork grain surface. Multiple layers of colours, flat tints, precise details, or even delicate and transparent veils are easy to achieve due to the characteristic 'fixing' of this paper. Due to its rigidity, weight, non-acidity, as well as light resistance this paper guarantees good conservation of work. These exquisite pads include 12 sheets of 360gsm acid free paper, each protected by a crystal insert. Pastelmat may be slightly curved: this is normal and part of the manufacturing process.
