Paper is a perfect surface for POSCA PASTEL, which will adapt to different grains, to white or colourful surfaces as well as all gramages.
Sheets or lined, paper is ideal for research and flexibility.
There’s no need to prepare the paper when using the POSCAL PASTEL. Thanks to its high pigment quality, the pastel stick maintains its brightness even on a dark base.
The application is made with a more or less sharpened tip, dedpending on the desired finish.
Do not apply POSCA PASTEL to wet paper as it will not adhere. However, you can apply an ink wash or a watercolour on your pastel lines and take advantage of their permanency.
POSCA PASTEL, due to its waxy nature, has its own protective function. So you don’t need to use a setting agent.
But you should avoid exhibiting your creations in the heat and, for optimal protection when being stored, you can cover them with glassine paper.
