Charcoal Papers
There are quite a number of charcoal papers made especially for the medium, but choosing paper for charcoal and pastel drawing is a matter of personal  choice based on your method and the hardness of the medium. Any light colored paper with a slight tooth or texture is suitable for charcoal drawing.

The key to a good dry-medium paper is tooth (the rough textured surface that captures particles from the stick or pencil, and holds them to the paper). Smooth papers are rarely satisfactory, because at least a slight tooth in the papers surface is necessary for telling lines and rich darks. Some papers may have a tooth like a mesh, while others may have a surface like velvet.

As the Charcoal paper is not made in stiff weights, a light drawing board may be required for support.

Charcoal papers may be used also with pastels, pencils, and other drawing media where a textured surface is desirable.
