Re: watercolor vs. acrylic marbling?



another opinion:

Try guache (oh, i know i've spelled it wrong...)
it has the fineness of watercolor but covers the paper better
get only the highest lightfastness numbers though - when i set a page out in
the yard to dry, 10 minutes and it was a faded remnant of the original - then
i checked the tube and it was only a 3 not a 1 in lightfastness

float on carageenen and it has wonderful control (available at Magnolia
Editions)
alum the paper
it's magnificent!
