The favoured surface for drawing, paper is the perfect parter for the POSCA PENCIL. Depending on your needs, the pencil will adapt to all types, whether they’re smooth, fine or grained, white or coloured, as well as all grammages.

On an invitation, the absence of grain will allow for more delicate work and uniform colours. For this, you should sharpen the pencil often so that it remains thin. On grained paper, the pencil will reveal the structure of the paper. So you can press down or go over the area several times in order to cover it more or take advantage of the graphic effect achieved.
