As one of our most recognizable papers, the Bogus Recycled Rough Sketch draws the attention of artists with its unique brown toned paper —and its unique name. Do you wonder why we named the toned pad BOGUS? You clearly aren’t alone because it’s one of our most frequently asked questions! The Bogus Recycled paper is actually named after the type of paper—Bogus! Bogus paper is typically found in large rolls for shipping purposes. However, artists discovered the rough texture and neutral tone create a surface that makes dry media pop. After seeing this, Bee Paper turned this unique paper into a sketch pad for all those exploring artists.
The brown toned paper forces the artist to play with light and shadow in a whole new way because of the lack of light in the paper itself. And that’s exactly what Bogus fans love about this paper—the ability to play. Armed with this sketchpad you can try all kinds of new dry media. There’s plenty of fun in seeing what you can do! Some of our recommended uses include: experimenting with gel pens, trying new lettering techniques, and using the brown toned pad for fashion design! There’s no shortage of skills you can test out with this paper.
There’s another part of the Bogus Recycled name that we haven’t talked about, RECYCLED. Notably made from 100% recycled material, the Bogus Recycled Sketch Pad changes the paper game. Also of note is the chemical free nature of the paper, which makes it completely biodegradable! In a world where conservation efforts are so valuable, the Bogus Recycled Rough Sketch paper is the step in the right direction for all the environmentally friendly artist of the world.
For experimenting, for the earth, and just for fun, the Bogus Recycled Rough Sketch is the perfect paper! And we love what artists do with it.
