I had some black paper that I used to use for my colored pencil drawings, so I decided to try them out with a white pen (Uniball Signo Gel Pens). I created a few drawings and loved the look, but wasn't thrilled with the way the pen was going onto the paper. It did not always flow evenly.
I saw these little packs of black paper at my local craft store, so I decided to try it out. The first drawing I did on this new (to me) paper turned out so much better than the other paper!
So I got online and found the same paper, Strathmore Artagain in a larger tablet size and ordered it right away! I ordered mine through Amazon, but it is also available through Blick Art Materials.
I've been playing around with the square tile paper to see what it can take and what I can do with them.
Here are a few of my doodles on the black tiles.
I took one of them (so far), and added color with colored pencils. I always use Prismacolor pencils. I plan to add color to all 3 of these doodles.
I had hoped to use some paint pens, but the first kind I used did not work like I had hoped. So I will need to experiment with some other types of pens to see if I can get the look I wanted. For now, I will stick with the colored pencils. I have tons of colored pencils! I hope to find some pens that leave a bright color on the black paper, similar to the white pen that I am using.
If anyone knows of some colored pens that work well on black paper, I would love to know! And if I find some, I will definitely update this post!
Hope you are having a nice 3 day weekend!
Have a great week!Beth♥
