The first 100% cotton black watercolor paper: Stonehenge Aqua Coldpress Black. 8×10″ pad with 15 hot press (smooth texture) sheets.
Black paper is not a new thing, but black 100% cotton paper sized for watercolor 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 watercolor paints, pencils, pens, markers and inks, the timing couldn’t be better for Stonehenge Aqua Coldpress Black to bring these media to life.
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 watercolors to bring a new breed of creativity to light.
