Testing New (to me) Paper: Rendr by Crescent

I've wanted to try scribbling around in the Rendr sketchbooks by Crescent for some time, but just haven't gotten around to buying one.  However, not long ago I found one on clearance at my local art supplies store, so I snagged it!

Rendr sketchbooks supposedly allow you to use any media you want and it will not bleed through the page.  You can read more about them on the Crescent page here.

I tried a quick scribble of my left hand using the most likely bleed-through culprit I know, a regular Sharpie pen.  Then I colored it with Pitt brush pens, which are nowhere near as bad as a Sharpie, but which have bled through plenty of pages in my other sketchbooks.

Here is the result:

As you can see, I laid the marker on pretty heavily, and even used a fairly vigorous stroke for the big blocks of color.

To my delight:  absolutely no bleed through!  YAY!!

Now I feel like I can dig out the markers I have hidden away and really give them some good use in this little notebook (this is the pocket size). 

This is a paper I am glad I know about.
