Canson's Mi-Teintes has long been one of the world's leading colored pastel paper brands, and now in response to popular demand, Canson has expanded the line offering to include new Mi-Teintes "Touch" Paper and Boards! The Mi-Teintes Touch surface features an innovative, sanded-type coating with a smoother, finer tooth than other sanded papers, and is ideal for all work in soft pastels as it holds multiple layers of color on its highly receptive surface. This special primer formulation is available in 14 popular Mi-Teintes colors, from white to black and a wide range of both warm and cool mid-tones in between, and is applied (leaving a white border) to Canson's special, archival French-made 218 lb. paper or heavyweight board. This makes for a heavier, sturdier surface than any other sanded pastel paper, ensuring your work will not warp and buckle even if a wash is applied.
Not only is Mi-Teintes Touch the perfect surface for soft pastels, it lends itself beautifully to artwork done in virtually any other media. Graphite and colored pencil, silverpoint, charcoal, crayon, inks, oil pastel, airbrush, acrylics, and even oil colors produce beautiful effects on this finely textured substrate — making Mi-Teintes Touch the ideal choice for mixed media works! The full size 22x30" paper sheets or 20x30" boards are great for large pieces — or can be easily cut down to any size you like — and are sold in packs of 10 sheets or 5 boards. From Canson, makers of inspirational artist papers since 1557, comes new Mi-Teintes Touch Paper and Boards: sure to inspire you too!
