i like the notebook because not only I used it for pastel but for acrylic too and because of paper thickness the result was great. 24sheets 9"x12" ofcourse i didn't noticed when i was buying that the papers come i 6 different colors there are 4 of each these colors: white, cream, blue, green, light pink & brown. but since the colors are mild it's not a problem but it would be better they were all white. eathier way i couldn't get any cheeper than this in stores so I would buy this any way.
Strathmore Pastel Pad
Since I just started doing pastels, I'm not that familiar with the different pastel papers, but this is a really good value for beginners & from what I can gather, this is a standard paper for pastels, both oil & chalk or soft pastels. My mediums have been watercolor, acrylics & oils. You could probably use this for watercolor or acrylic if you have a very light touch & don't get the paper too wet. It's acid free, which is very important when you want your art to last more than a few yrs. I've done 2 pastels on it so far & found it very easy to work on. It's nice because this pad also has different color papers you can try out with your pastels in case you don't want to use the plain white. I'd say it's an excellent value, especially if you're just beginning & are hesitant to spend the money for the more expensive supports.
Grand Daughter Loves It
I checked with my grand daughter after she received the whole order. She was extremely happy to get the art supplies (for college). She said everything was just what she wanted plus I had added other items.
I have used the same product in the past myself and found it was great paper to work with.

Great for use with pastels! Heavy paper and great quality. Will buy this again when we need more for our art projects.
Great paper to do my pastel coloring on. The paper is the perfect thickness and texture is good. Love it
My girls really enjoy using this paper - it works wonderfully with the pastels I bought them. Thanks for the service.
Just What I needed!
I needed this for my Mother to use while doing craft work. It works exactly as I needed it to. She's thrilled with it.
I have tried limited watercolor, graphite drawings, and wax-based colored pencils. One thing at a time. Still to try are pastels and Acrylics. So far, so very good!
