I knew there was a reason my ears were ringing..........

Hey sweetie! I still keep thinking it is an issue with your paper and not YOU - wish we could go shopping together to find something that would work for you. I would be totally into that today! Are you able to get or order heavier weight watercolor paper (more than 220 gsm)? I have some lower-quality watercolor paper that acts just like you're describing - the water or ink soaks in too quickly and the color doesn't move.
