I had wanted paper that was not too dark in colour, so assumed, wrongly, that cool would pale. I'll know another time. Kay Troughton (Reading, United Kingdom) on 1 Mar 2013
Although my order arrived very promptly, I was extremely disappointed by the colours in the Neutral selection, which were nothing like the ones shown in the colour chart, being much too bright to be described as earth tones and where exactly does the very strong green appear in this chart? This will be of limited use to me. Please note it says 'contents may vary' on front of this pad. They certainly do!! I will stick to Tiziano in future.

I use these pastel papers to get different backgrounds. I have had great fun trying different effects. Note that he papers have a rough and a smoother tooth depending on the side. So take care in choosing before you start. Having said that sometimes the "wrong" choice imparts a different result that is pleasing.
If you choose the darker colors, be careful when using a fixative as it may drastically change the colors. Andrew Thorniley (Rickmansworth, United Kingdom) on 24 Jun 2020
