Zeta & Silks

This month sees the launch of Stillman & Birn's new Zeta Series sketchbooks.These new books contain an amazing heavyweight smooth surface paper of 180lb's.

Smooth surface paper is by far my favorite and at last there is a book that gives us a heavyweight alternative. I can't wait for the release.

I've been playing on some sample pages using all sorts of different mediums, and I've been amazed at how wonderful the paper holds up.  But what has been more amazing is how vibrant the colors remain on it's surface.

This cupcake is done in Silks Acrylic Glaze and ink.  Silks are a beautiful mineral laced luminescent fluid acrylic paint from Luminarte. They behaved beautifully on this paper.

The Zeta Series sketchbook will be available this month from all good art stores.

Thanks for checking in. xx
