Rhodia Ice Pad
A smooth surface and grid lines make this Rhodia pad perfect for practicing.
Rhodia Dot Pad
Grid lines too restrictive? The Rhodia Dot Pad has the same smooth surface, but with dots instead of a grid.

With slants like these, getting those copperplate ovals to look consistent is much easier.
Mastering Copperplate Practice Pad
Same smooth paper, slightly different slant.

Using tracing paper is one of my favorite ways to practice flourishing! It’s also great for practicing your basic strokes or trying new compositions.

A light pad is a great way to create a finished piece without having to worry about erasing pencil lines or smearing your work.
