Experimental Paper- Vintagepaper.co
William has samples of a treated vintage paper for us to experiment with
I will post updates of my experiments here
I am not a watercolour artist.
I like to play with the colours.
I cut out postcard size pieces to explore this paper.
I wet one card then added drops of colour and watched it spread.
By the time I got to colour 3 the paper was not wet enough for the spread effect, so had drops of water just sitting on the surface, they did not move even when I lifted the paper and tilted it in invitation to flow.
Verdict - probably not for watercolour painting- (wet-on-wet) though experienced artists might have a different point of view.
I am happy with my postcard of radiating blues and dots of purple.
I asked for some Inktense pencils as part of my Christmas wish list in 2016- not used them much as I do not really know how to.
Created another postcard ( am making 365 postcards this year as a project )
The inktense colours came out beautifully
Verdict- good for Inktense.
