Reply Anne on June 6, 2016 at 3:07 pm Watercolor paper comes in a variety of weights and holds water better than normal paper. It can be found in craft stores (or Department store’s craft area) near the Sketch Paper or Multimedia Paper. Reply Sally on July 29, 2016 at 9:53 am Thanks for helping out, Anne! Reply Gisele Alves Santiago on January 6, 2018 at 9:44 am I thank you Sally! I intend to do beatifull things! Reply Magic and Mayhem on November 15, 2011 at 7:06 pm Watercolor paper is thicker, sturdier and more absorbent than regular paper. You can buy it at craft stores in pads. You could also experiment with light colored construction paper, cardstock and copy paper I think, though. Reply Kim on April 9, 2016 at 2:39 pm Is this the background for your artwork?
