Several months ago I read on Jeanette's blog about Terra Skin Paper. Well I'm not too sure it's still called paper. I got some samples to try and had never used it. Today I decided to try my little ceramic Lady B on the Terra Skin.
I like the surface and the way it holds the color. I did find that my mechanical pencils seemed to dig in and make indented lines. Also in one spot a sharp pencil chipped a piece out of the surface. I was able to cover it but I was surprised that it did chip.
The thickness and the "feel" of the Terra Skin is like those flexible magnets. Bendable and a nice thick feel. The surface was quite nice with the colored pencils. Not sure how many layers it would take as I tend to go in dark right away. I don't have the patience to do 24 layers or so.
All in all I like the Terra Skin but I would have to use it a little more before I would do something I wanted to keep long term. I would have to see if the chipping is something that would happen often. It was nice to have the opportunity to try the surface.
