The Best Art Products for Creating Black Backgrounds

Watch me test 16 different art products and techniques to figure out which are the best for creating black backgrounds–especially in coloring books. I used the following criteria to test and evaluate the best black backgrounds: ease of application, opacity and intensity of black, streakiness/blotchiness, layer-ability, paper bleed, and paper damage/warping. These are the products that I tested: Derwent Inktense Pencils, Inktense with ColorIt Watercolor Brush Pen, Caran d’Ache Neocolor II Aquarelle, NeoColor II with ColorIt Watercolor Brush Pen, Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencil with Gamsol, Colored Pencil with Black Alcohol Marker, and more!
