Artists of all ages can achieve dramatic effects on this black chalk paper. The heavy-weight stock is coated and has a rough surface which is a great choice for chalk, chalk markers, pastels and opaque pens. Similar to a hard chalkboard, the paper's surface can be wiped off with a damp cloth to remove dry media, allowing for multiple uses on the same sheet and creating a weathered look. The pad includes 15 sheet of paper plus a fun project instruction sheet inside. Made in the USA.
