You can add multiple layers and can also wash the pastel off under running water if you want to reuse the paper. It doesn't go completely back to white and you need to weight it down as it dries - I wrap it in paper towel and place under a book. I have washed the same piece of paper off twice, using it for oil pastels after the second wash. Great for beginners who are trying to save money.
