|Toning UArt Paper|
Why would you want to tone your paper?
- Toned paper helps unify your colors. The bits of the toned surface will peek through giving instant color harmony to your painting.
- The color of your paper helps set a certain mood or feeling. A warm color lends a warm sunny feeling while a cool color can give a moody, cool feel to the painting.
- Toning the paper can help take the fear of facing a 'blank canvas'. Just the physical act of spreading the pastel on the paper can help you get warmed up to paint.
