Welcome to dickblick
It's called "Colourfix" for the obvious reason. This very permanent, lightfast coated paper withstands all manner of artistic experimentation (and even punishment).
These papers are used successfully in practically all media — pastels, charcoal, pencil, oils, acrylic, gouache, inks, silverpoint, and even watercolor. The natural toothy surface is ideal for pastels, pencil, or charcoal, as it will hold multiple overlays of color without the need to fix between layers.
The absence of fixative allows the velvet bloom and vibrant color of pastel to be preserved. (Apply a final light spray of fixative if desired.)
The unique, fine tooth surface is produced by screen printing Art Spectrum Colourfix Primer onto a heavy weight Hot Press watercolor paper. Available in 9" × 12" (229 mm × 305 mm) or 19½" × 27½" (495 mm × 686 mm) sheets. 140 lb (300 gsm).
Cool Tones Pack
Includes the following 10 cool tones in a 9" × 12" (229 mm × 305 mm) sheet pack: Blue Haze, Deep Black, Deep Ultra, Elephant, Fresh Gray, Leaf Green Dark, Natural, Rose Gray, Storm Blue, and White.
Includes all 20 colors in the Colourfix line in a 9" × 12" (229 mm × 305 mm) sheet pack.
Warm Tones Pack
Includes the following 10 warm tones in a 9" × 12" (229 mm × 305 mm) sheet pack: Aubergine, Australian Gray, Burgundy, Burnt Umber, Olive Green, Raw Sienna, Rich Beige, Sand, Soft Umber, and Terra Cotta.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

No art supplies stores in my area. Glad to be able to order it from a reputable store online.
FINALLY A BLACK WATERCOLOR SURFACE!
from River Forest, IL
I do mandalas with colored pencil on black paper and have searched for months for a black surface that would take to watercolor pencils. THIS IS IT! A bit expensive but worth it for special mandala rendering. I learned about this at the workshop of colored pencils offered by Kristy Kutch. I am most grateful.
I would buy this product again

Colourfix Coated Paper
from Gastonia, NC
Used these in a color pencil class to render a great Horse Portrait. As a teacher of art I am always looking for good material to introduce to my classes. This product was overwhelmingly "lovved" by my students.
