Ask an Expert - Forum > Stonehenge Black drawing paper and static electricity

I have been drawing on Stonehenge black paper with colored pencils and watercolor pencils. I have notced that the paper takes on a charge of static electricity in the winter or in dry conditions. What is the fibre and colorant in the paper? Is the static from the carbon used to color the paper black? I'm wondering about the long-term durability of my drawings and difficulties with framing to reduce drawing materials hopping to glass or plexi across an air space in the frame. Thank you!

Stonehenge Black is a 100% cotton, archival paper. The paper is colored with pigment rather than dye which gives the paper its archival and light fast properties . As long as your drawings are properly stored, there should be no issues with long-term durability.
