Changing the paper color you normally use for calligraphy writing can immediately change the mood. It is a great way to break patterns artists inevitably develop. But making the drastic change to a black paper can present you with a new feeling altogether, which can of course lead to welcome new inspirations.

The Black Knight is a black paper overlayed with golden grids. The gold color serves to make the black seem even darker, lending a silent quality. Obviously, you will not want to use black ink for your work on this paper, so the new color combinations can serve to provide an alternative to tired old styles. Try golden ink or white ink   to provide a contrast to the black background. Using red ink can create a work that is particularly striking.

The paper itself is unprocessed Xuan paper, which is very absorbent, making it the perfect choice for calligraphy writing, no matter which script style you choose.
