Many months ago, my brother who works for an engineering firm had given me a sample of drafting film and after seeing such beautiful results from fellow artists, I decided to finally try it. Oh, my goodness I can't believe how smooth and silky the pencils glide on this paper! I'm still experimenting and just now realized that I might have worked on the wrong side of the film but the results are still worth the try! I absolutely love it and will definitely be purchasing more of this paper. Oh, how I love my colored pencils now!!
