I received the following email today concerning the availability of the new paper here in the US.
Hello Jan, Thank you for your interest in Art Spectrum
Colourfix Suede Paper. It is so new that it has just arrived in the United States
last week for the first time!!! Right now it is available in just a few select
stores, but we have recently shipped some to the following store and you will be
able to order it by mail in the near future: Dakota Art Store, 1-888-345-0067,
www.dakotapastels.com Please let me know if we can be of further
assistance. Kind regards, Lori Villalonga Armadillo Art & Craft
Armadillo Art and Craft is the US distributor for Art Spectrum products and I'd like to thank Lori for her prompt reply to my query about the suede paper.
I don't have any idea about the price or anything much else about it but have heard it will be available in 8 colors and 2 sizes. It's supposed to be a "softer" version of the current Colourfix paper. Hmmmm, don't know exactly what that means but it sounds somewhat like a PastelMat competitor.
If anyone tries it, please let us know how you like it!
