It was totally one of those "Duh!" smack-my-forehead moments -- watercoloring is MUCH easier doing it the old fashioned way, IMHO.

As for the MFT paper panels and watercolors, I don't really think so. I think you'd have a lot better luck with a heavy weight (say 90 lb) hot pressed watercolor paper. They don't usually carry these in Hobby Lobby or Michael's (all of that stuff is cold pressed), but I've found large sheets of it at Art Supply stores and you can bring them home and cut them down to whatever size you want.
Thanks for the info. I also hate the waterpen, the last project I was working on, it decided to pee all over my impage. I guess I need to visit the art supply store soon. I wonder if I can take the waterpen back to the sales girl....

I use a paint brush, that way I have different sizes for the smaller spaces. It is the easiest for me.

No Problem!! When you first get them stir them really good and then after that you should be able to just shake them real good before you use them. Then use what is on the lid after you shake it to paint with that way you can control what is on your brush.

I have heard good things about these but never tried them out. I almost failed art class and watercoloring was never my thing, haha.

I ordered pink and white fun flock, I set them on the counter and my baby took off with them. I have searched the whole house and can not find them anywhere.
