Tips, slips, stumbles, and leaps on the creative journey

Copic pens—alcohol markers—do bleed through. This is cotton paper being soaked in alcohol carrying a color.

But again, generally watercolor papers just suck up alcohol inks, and Stonehenge does not. It allows for layering, deepening the color and layering, which is unusual. This is ink that comes in a flat tin, has a paste consistency and is heavy, almost like a monotype ink.

My favorite use is with watercolor pencils. Both went down smoothly when they were dry and created intense color blending when touched with a wet brush.

Thank you for this wonderful review. I have been wanting to get some Stonehenge watercolour paper and now I will for sure. Wonder if they still will send some free samples! We'd love your feedback I've been devoted to Fabriano for years, and this had to measure up to some stiff competition! So let's get right at it! I had small sheets of lb. I threw about everything at it I could think of It's a good bright white paper, with both internal and external sizing, so it's pretty tough.

I'm not terribly hard on my paper, but I did use some of the rougher techniques I could think of. This is the lb. I worked very wet in wet on the two examples above, and used spatter, spray, salt and scraping--it handled all of those well. I hadn't stretched or taped the paper down to a board, so it did buckle slightly while wet, but it dried nicely--and since I usually DO tape down my paper when doing an actual painting rather than working in my journal, I don't consider that a problem.

I didn't notice any buckling in the small journals I made Posted by Kate Cathy Johnson at 5: Kate Cathy Johnson November 8, at 6: Ellie Knol November 8, at 6: Anne Rita Taylor November 9, at 9: I can work with cheap watercolor paints, but cheap paper is a deal breaker.

Because paper is the literal foundation of your artwork, it matters that it is amazingly good. It did not disappoint! Over a couple weeks, I used the Stonehenge Aqua in different projects to get a feel for the papers. Painting on the hot press paper was a dream, and I loved using a watercolor block. In the past, I have used loose sheets of paper, and have to either stretch the paper or flatten it after painting.

All that water makes the paper buckle, but using the block eliminated all of that. The paper was a nice clean shade of white, rather than a cream, which I thought helped the paints maintain more of their vibrancy in the finished works.

After the flop that was Strathmore’s new colored pencil paper, I was a bit afraid to try something other than my beloved Fabriano Artistico HP watercolor paper with my colored pencils. Yes, paper can be beloved! Don’t judge! Enough people love the Stonehenge paper though that I had to give it a shot. I ordered [ ]. Recently I was introduced to Stonehenge Aqua Watercolor Paper by Legion Paper, and it totally exceeded all my expectations. I tried out both the hot press and cold press watercolor blocks to see if it would hold a match to my all-time favourite paper by Arches.
