The intense black of the deep-dyed 55 lb Carb'On® paper is perfect for high contrast effects. It is doublegrain: one side has a very fine grain, while the other is virtually smooth and ideal for dry drawing techniques (pencil, chalk, sanguine, pastel, pigmented felt pen). It is also very well suited to highlighting with white ink or gouache. This paper is acid-free, PH-neutral, and light-resistant. Vegan friendly.
