Rives BFK Paper


I am enjoying testing some new papers. The Rives BFK feels wonderful and took the pointed pen really well. The pen just glides over the surface. Right now I am experimenting with watercolour washes on it. On this small flourish, the rosebuds are done with watercolour and the black ink is McCaffery's gloss.

Heather, how did I miss this! So beautiful.
McCaffery's gloss will not dry down here in the South! ;0
Love your watercolors.

Thanks Dana. My first bottle of the gloss black did not dry well at all. But I bought some by mistake and have been getting really good results with it. Not sure if the recipe has changed a bit.
