The first 100% cotton black watercolour paper.
Stonehenge Aqua Black Heavy watercolour paper performs to the most critical demands expected by artists. Ideal for use with metallic and pearlescent watercolour paints, pencils, pens, markers and inks.
Available in 300 lb. (600gsm) cold-press 10-sheet paper pads, this paper dries flat and colours dry bright. Featuring 100 cotton fibre, this paper has a neutral pH, is acid- and lignin-free. It delivers great results whether working wet, wet on dry, blending, lifting or masking out.
Black paper is an exciting, new world. Instead of building up shadows, one builds up light. It’s a place where negative space is transformed into positive. And while it may be dark, it’s a chance for those who live and breathe watercolours to bring a new breed of creativity to light.
Black paper is not a new thing, but black 100% cotton paper sized for watercolour is. Utilizing their vast experience producing new papers for emerging markets, Legion was able to work directly with artists to create something totally new and desirable. And with recent introductions of new metallic and pearlescent watercolour paints, pencils, pens, markers and inks, the timing couldn’t be better for Stonehenge Aqua Coldpress Black to bring these media to life.
We already carry the 140lb sheets and now we have the 300lb (20×30) paper. Come and try it out. You will love it!
