I think that answered it.  Thanks much........Maggie

Hi Jen

Thanks for the tip on velour paper (and the compliment on my creative name. Sometimes my creativity astonishes me!) I never tried velour paper, but probably will in the future. Darn! There's two Micheals in this town, and not one Dick Blick!!!

Amethyst, that is one sweet compliment you paid me!  Thank you!  I did that on "velour paper", have you ever tried painting on velour paper?  That will give you that softness, that pastel is capable of, but only on velour.  Velour paper is DIFFICULT to find, however Blick sells that too!

Happy painting, Amethyst and Maggie!
