I wanted to try some black watercolour paper as a change from the usual white and pale colours. I tried using the Derwent Inktense paints, and some of the more vibrant watercolours I own. They gave stunning results. The paper itself wasn't as heavy as I usually use, but it was fine for what I wanted to do. Avril Kay (Warrington, United Kingdom) on 18 Oct 2021
I have used used both coloured pencil and opaque water colour on this paper. The surface texture is smooth enough for fine detail, yet has enough texture for coloured pencil work. Carol Doran (Bletchley, United Kingdom) on 30 Mar 2022
Good quality, thick & durable. I used this in an unconventional way by letting ice spheres with acrylic ink melt on it & it withstood the water saturation & the remaining ink marks were amazing. Jules Reid (Bournemouth, United Kingdom) on 21 Mar 2021
