  1. A Colored Pencil Artist's Dream 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 3rd 2018

    I had tried other sanded paper products for my colored pencil art and ended up feeling like they were mainly eating my pencils. Suede boards just didn't offer enough tooth. But my first use of the Fisher 400 board was like a dream come true. I could use dark colors over light or light over dark- can't do that with regular paper. It was easy to blend colors, it was easy to use OMS to create layers and fix them with workable fixative, then build on top of those layers, but the real test came with the final details of putting fur on the bear- Wow! I'm sold. The buff color doesn't interfere with the real color and still shows up the light pencils.

  2. great for detail work 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 9th 2016

    I do portraits of pets and people. I first started using Fisher 400 when I lived in Ireland. I've had many successful exhibitions using this medium , but I understand there is a new cotton paper out that isn't so hard on your hands. Would like to try that. I am not related to Tim Fisher, but recommend his paper very highly.

  3. Wonderful paper 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 6th 2016

    I was advised to buy Fisher 400 art paper by a master pastelist. She was right. It is a pleasure to work with! I had never worked on a sanded paper before. What a difference!

  4. Very impressive 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 6th 2013

    I'm a beginner at pastels so I've been reading a lot of reviews on the different papers. After purchasing multiple brand names and experimenting on them all I have concluded that the Fisher 400 is my favorite so far. The pastels stay on the paper and I can get much more detail into my artwork than the other papers. It also allows me to go over the dark colors with the light without them blending together.
