Known as one of the worldâ€™s most popular papers, Mi-Tientes has a 65% rag content, a 160gsm weight and is gelatine sized, making it very strong for repeated reworking in a variety of media. The Mi-Tientes sheet has two distinct surface textures, one side smooth and the other grainy. Thus, the sheet is adaptable to an endless array of techniques. No matter what media you use - soft pastel, oil pastel, pencil, charcoal, coloured pencil, watercolour, designersâ€™ colours or acrylic, youâ€™ll find the Mi-Tientes surface to be highly receptive and easy to work on.
The shades are coloured in the pulp to be highly light-resistant and acid-free.
This has also been successfully used in Laser printers and the lighter colours in Inkjet printers.
