Named after the Neoclassical French painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Ingres paper is a uniquely textured paper ideal for pastel drawing. The surface of this paper is formed on a cylinder mould machine by pressing the paper fibres between the cylinder mesh and the marking felt. The surface texture is know as a chain and laid line surface.
Available in two sizes, 12 x 9in (305 x 228mm) and 16 x 12in (406 x 305mm), these Daler Rowney Ingres Pastel Paper Pads provide excellent tooth for traditional pastel work. Spiral bound these pads contain 24 acid free 160gsm (90lb) sheets in an assortment of colours.
This is a product which I like and have used for some time; the spiral binding and interleaf tissue sheeting is an excellent idea - but beware not all DR pastel paper books have it. Brian Clancy (Altrincham, United Kingdom) on 8 Oct 2019
