The new Lana Vanguard paper from France is a synthetic plastic paper similar to Yupo paper. This multifunctional paper is bright white, very smooth, robust, acid-free and tear proof. It is very popular as an unusual non-absorbant watercolour paper.

With the benefits of not buckling even with very wet paint, a very white surface that makes colours brighter than on traditional watercolour paper and the ability to wipe back to white, it serves watercolourists very well. It is non-absorbent so it remains perfectly flat, eliminating the need for soaking, stretching, or taping. It resists tearing. Colours sit on top of the paper and take a bit longer to dry than with traditional paper so many people use a hair dryer.

When you are sure your painting is finished, it is recommended that you set it with a spray fixative. Use an acrylic spray product that will not yellow with time. Spray your painting outside or in a well ventilated area lightly from side to side, then up and down. Use several light, even coats rather than one heavy coat which could cause drips or puddles. Most people prefer a matt finish to a glossy one.

It is available in 200 gsm weight in pads or in sheets.

Other techniques that can be used: acrylic, oil, gouache, ink, highlighter, crayon, coloured crayon.

Review by Feefo
I bought this to try with watercolour because I had read it could be used for that but I don't think it is up to the task having tried it. It will be really good for drawing though so I will still use it. (Posted on 16/03/2017)
