Went Black - won't go back!

Comments about Bee Paper Heavyweight Black Bristol Pads:
I had been using white Bristol for my drawings (Faber-Castel Poly Color Pencils) and found I was getting frustrated with drawing white or light colored pets. On a whim, I tried Bee Black Bristol and have used nothing else since! It makes all colors POP and instead of fighting the paper, it works with me to create vibrant drawings. I absolutely love it to pieces!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Buzz on Bee Paper...
By Pencil Pets By Gracie
from Las Vegas
After having trouble drawing white animals on white bristol, I tried using Bee's black paper and now I am hopelessly addicted and use nothing else. The color pencils I use (Faber-Castell) really POP on the page and it makes for a better drawing all around. The only one small complaint I have is that the blending isn't the same as it is on the white Bristol - not as smooth I suppose...but that is minor compared to the final result I get using this high quality, thicker paper for my customers!

Bee Paper Excellent Choise
By Shep the artist
from Gastonia NC
I've been looking for quality black paper (heavy weight) to use with colored pencils. This is a great paper for using with colored pencils, primarily with polychromos and/or prismacolor pencils. The weight is ideal to layer colors. Polychromos white works great on the paper allowing for super blending of colors needing pop.

A good gift to an artist
from Port Orchard
This was a gift to a young and talented artist, who used it as soon as he got it
Good weight. Great blackness. Good smooth drawing surface.
good quality paper
I found this paper to be of good quality; nice heavy weight and acceptable tooth. However, I work in colored pencil and found that I could only get the paper to accept about 4 layers of pigment before it was full, meaning that the black was not very satisfactorily covered. Bryunzeel and Pablo worked best on this paper.
Love this paper!!
