    "LuxArchival Pastel Paper"
    It feels like Wallis Pastel paper. I am thrilled working with this surface. I am able to use my own style of painting without frustration. It accepts multiple layers of pastel. I am so glad that you have this product available. The packaging was good and it arrived flat without any curling of the sides.

    "Lux Archival Pastel Paper"
    I love this paper! My go to papers are Uart and Pastelmat, but this will definitely be a new favorite! I especially love that it is white, doesn't have to be mounted for wet underpainting and takes multiple layers of pastel.

    "Best in years"
    I'm so excited that LuxArchival came along; it's the best new pastel paper product I've seen in years. I'm thrilled with the quality. It takes an underpainting beautifully. It is toothy yet very consistent, taking pastel strokes with no skipping or unevenness, so that there's no need to go back and retouch. I can use as many or as few layers as I want. The paper becomes what it should be, a support for my art.

    Love using this paper and how the underpainting and pastel react to the surface. A new favorite

    "Very aggressive tooth"
    I'm sure this would hold many layers however I couldn't get past the first. Too coarse for me. I prefer Uart or Pastelmat!

    "LuxArchival Paper"
    I like the tooth of the paper, weight, archival and the way I was able to apply many layers of pastels. I tried different brands of pastels and they all worked well on the paper. LuxArchival has become my new love in pastel paper.

    "I Love LUXArchival Pastel Paper"
    This wonderful surface takes many layers and lies flat. What more could a pastel artist ask?

    "Lux Archival Paper"
    I have done 3 pieces so far with this paper and I am impressed. I love the gritty feel and the thickness of the paper. I does really well with an alcohol was. It does not curl at all. I did fill up the tooth quicker than I would with Uart400 but I do tend to be a little heavy handed.

    "LuxArchival Pastel Paper"
    I found the substrate durable . It did not buckle when various wet products were used . It held many pastel layers and I liked the outcome . Since this was an experiment I ordered the 8x10 and I think I would like to experiment with a larger size.

    "I’m enjoying the paper"
    This paper has a lot of tooth and accepts many layers of pastel. The price is very good as well. I will order it again.

    "Happy Again!"
    For a long time, I have been disappointed in several pastel sanded papers. Then I got an email from Dakota about the new LuxArchival pastel paper. The description sounded good so I tried it. I can honestly say the paper lives up to its description and is a fabulous surface. I am a happy camper or should I say painter?

    "Lux Archival"
    I purchased the 8x10 pack of 10 sheets. I did a wet under painting and the paper held up without buckling. I also scrubbed off the painting I did and proceeded to put some gesso on the paper. It holds up very well and can take a lot of layers of pastel. However, I wish there were more sizes available, maybe 10x12 or 11x14.

    "Lux Archival Pastel paper"
    I have used this only once so far but I was very impressed with this product and can hardly wait to start another painting. I used watercolor for under painting which took a time to take but in the end looked great . The pastel applications went on smoothly. This might very well become a favorite
