  1. Using Fisher 400 for at least a year and still happy! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 9th 2014

    After a year of using Fisher 400, I will never use a different surface. The texture, grit and large amounts of pastel the paper holds has helped my work improve. The even texture works for both details and impressionistic strokes. There are no lines in the finished painting that are sometimes seen in other products. The paper does take punishment such as vigorously brushing out unsatisfactory work with a still bristle brush. Lately I've found a foam brush works well too. I'm also doing a dry underpainting and Fisher 400 has responded well to that.

  2. A good, tough surface! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 23rd 2013

    Besides having the perfect texture, Fisher400 is tough. Each time I work on a painting I find something new about Fisher that makes me even more committed to this surface. Unfortunately I do make mistakes. I have used a white, stiff bristle brush to literally dig the pastel out of the surface with no damage to the paper. In the long run this makes Fisher400 less expensive than some surfaces where this kind of treatment could cause permanent damage. Now, if I could just find pastels that do not make mistakes...
