Hi! I'm looking for a good quality watercolour paper that will work with watercolour pencil and still be wettable with watercolour or acrylic washes, without buckling, for doing backgrounds. Can anyone give me any suggestions? The 140 lb. paper I have been using isn't heavy enough.See More

Thank you for your kind comment! When you paint with spray paint you need to use the shiny side of poster board to be able to keep the spray paint wet so you can play with it. I layered on the colors I wanted and then scraped the flower image out. You have to work very quickly with spray paint and forget about manicured nails! I'm attempting to attach a you tube video to this comment, if it works, note how quickly this guy moves and how his hands are covered with spray paint. And no, I didn't finish my piece off with flames!! :)
