katerina Koukiotis says: her tattoo is just stunning love the paper color i have been trying to find a pinkish color like this one but all i find is their browns and greys ~ Reply?

     Maria J. William replied to this: Thank you Kat! ❤️ The paper I've used for this is Strathmore Artagain 400 series. It comes in pads. It's my new favorite tinted paper, I love the interesting shades, and it's a lot thicker than some others I've used.
     katerina Koukiotis replied to this: Thank you so much Maria xoxo I have seen the art again paper but in local store I have only found their black paper I'll order some I was hoping to find in stores to save on the shipping fees , I use start more pastel paper it's 98lb pretty good in thickness not as flimsy as canson mi tientes charcoal paper even though I love their colors but wish they would make their tinted charcoal papers thicker , thanks again next time I will give a try love the pink tones nice color for fleshy skin tones :):)
