I have just tried papyrus paper for the first time. It's not bad.

I've also tried watercolor paper but the best is Downer Rowney pastel paper, in my opinion.

My first choice for a pastel paper would have to be any decent hand-made watercolor paper

A very close second and, in some ways, also my first choice is Waterford Watercolor, Rough

After that; anything with plenty of "tooth" and strong enough to withstand some scraping and a lot of water and fixatives. (I tend to make a watercolour wash using pastels and a wet paintbrush to create my initial background colours, layout and colour scheme... after that, I always go over the top with fixatives - except in the final layer where I never use them)

Canson Me Tientes is great when I want to really force myself to go easy on the application of pastel and try to keep to a more traditional style of pastel painting with at least a bit of the original paper colour showing through...
