We're still in the States. We hit the road to travel West in a few weeks (the week after CHA) so I'm making CHA samples like mad and trying to work ahead on February projects too. Cra-zi-ness.

They are different wet and dry and I use them both ways. Best thing to do is play around with them and find what works for you!

I am not really sure..I have never used the water color crayons, but I assume you can use regular card stock with them. I don't care for glossy card stock ..I don't sue alcohol inks and I know you need them for those.Just try them out and see how they react to it..

Glossy cardstock wouldn't be my choice. Do you have any heavy cardstock or watercolor paper?

I don't think they will stick to glossy very well. A fun thing to try is quickly dipping them in water and coloring on the rubber of the stamp and stamping, spray the stamp with water and stamp again. It will look like a watercolor painting! I did that for the ginko on thids card:

I am making up a Blick order right now. I have a water color class to teach in Feb..and was wondering if anyone had tried the Blick water color paper? It is 90 lb so not for professional quality, but the price seems decent. For this first class I am not doing great detail work that will require lots of scrubbing and lifting...so I wonder if it would be ok. I was hoping some one had treid it...

The lightest weight watercolor paper I've used is 200 gsm, which corresponds to 110#.

This is what I'm using now, but the 140#:

Thanks.. That looks like it will work.Do you prefer the rough instead of the hot pressed? I have been using hot pressed or smooth..and I find I like it for stamping but for a lot of my paintings I like a bit of texture to the paper..maybe I should try stamping on some of the cold pressed..

This paper is textured but not really rough. I guess I've never used hot press paper, now that I think about it. When we're overseas I just use what's available.

umm Dini..I think you could stamp and paint or color on an old flour sack and it would look perfect LOL...Would you like a few samples of some hot pressed to try out? I would be happy to share a bit with you. I hate to order something like paper and dislike it when I get it..That is how my kids get a lot of stuff LOL

Oh I was going to ask you about the Albrecht Durer pencils. You said they were a bit of an upgrade,..how so? I didn't like Prismacolor water colors because they were not vibrant IMHO..They seemed almost chalky in consintency. I like the vibrancy of the Derwents and the Inktense..just wondering what the Durers are like..I am going to get a few open stock to try out...

Juicy ink pad. Stored upside down. I am going to reink it when I use it and see if that makes the color darker. I just do not like the color at all. I think I am being nit picky. I get like that with my art supplies.

Has anyone made a swatch reference for the watercolor medium he or she uses? And---more important---do you use it? Derwent has pre-colored swatch sheets for its regular watercolor pencils and Inktense pencils. I've printed them but confess I have never referred back to them. With Copics, on the other hand, I constantly work off my swatch sheet when choosing a marker.

No I have never made a swatch and I have to say I don't use the Primacolor chart either..I just pick my pencils and scribble on a piece of scrap if I question the hue of it. I know Dini has some awesome charts..but to be honest I use mine to keep track of my supply LOL..

I have a swatch sheet that I made for my Inktense. I use it all the time.

I often run it across a colour on my page to find the right tone to blend with and I find it more useful than looking at my pencils when picking blends to begin with.

My DH does this with his oil paints. It really helps him a lot. I love his swatch idea. I thought of adopting it. I usually just look at all my coloring tools and say "I will use that one!" ROFL!

The other day I was making my own custom palettes on a scrap piece of paper so I could have an idea of what I wanted to color with. My DH saw me doing that. He said "That's a really good idea!" I do love the swatch idea but I don't think it would work for me. I would go back to looking at my physical pencils and paints.

dini i will definitely look for you!!!

as for the swatch sheets - when my mom bought me my first set of colored pencils she showed me how i should sit down and make a swatch sheet. i never did and always scribbled on a scrap. when i started using copics i made the swatch sheet and ALWAYS used it so when i switched back to pencils i made swatch sheets and never color without them. i am in the process of making them for my WC pencils and my twinks.

One big benefit of a swatch sheet for w/c pencils is to show the difference in colour between heavy and light applications, wet, washed and dry. Looking at the tip of the Inktense usually gives me a good indication of wet to paper but washed and dry look totally different.

Also, when I'm looking for a shadow or highlight, I can see that 1310 has the bluer toning of 1300 but 1320 as shadow on 1530. Looking at the pencils, the colour difference isn't as obvious to me.

Y'know... I have charts for my wax pencils and markers, but not for watercolor pencils. Not sure why that is! I do have someone's chart for Inktense, which is helpful since I need to know where to fill in (I have the set of 12 plus a handful that someone sent me, and a few I've just bought here and there).

Yes, I do. I love my additives. I use Gum Arabic. I use Ox Gall. I figured out Ox Gall is one of the ingredients to Distress Inks, lol. I have been recreating Distress Inks that way. I love Iridescent Medium. I have several additives but those are the three I really depend on.

add that to the paint (on a palette), you will dilute it and waste a lot if you add it to your water

I had a baby a few weeks ago and feel like my brain is fried...I can't seem to remember which inks I used to use to stamp my image when watercoloring! I probably need more sleep than I'm getting with a newborn! Can you help me remember which ink brands work best on watercolor paper? I read on one of the threads that Stazon works well, but I just tried that and my images are not as clear with that ink on watercolor paper. I love the clarity I get with Memento Tuxedo Black but it tends to run because it's not waterproof. I'm wondering if it will still run if I let it sit overnight before coloring...has anyone tried that? Or what other inks work best for stamping an image you plan to watercolor? Thanks for your help!

I read on one of the threads that Stazon works well, but I just tried that and my images are not as clear with that ink on watercolor paper. I love the clarity I get with Memento Tuxedo Black but it tends to run because it's not waterproof. I'm wondering if it will still run if I let it sit overnight before coloring...has anyone tried that? Or what other inks work best for stamping an image you plan to watercolor? Thanks for your help!

Congrats..I wondered where you had been..guess I know now LOL..

I like Archival..it works for my water colors as well as colored pencils. I just learned that SU black is water proof as well..haven't tried that yet. I know a lot of the girls like Versa magic ( I have brown but want to try the black..)..I have some of that slated for my next order so I can compare it as well. I am down with my neck and shoulder at the moment..so not much stamping going on for me for the next few days. Hopefully resting yesterday and today and probably tomorrow and using heat..etc..will get me back on track.

Enjoy that little one..I have a 16 yo so I can tell you first hand the years pass quickly ( well the teen age years seem to move at a slower rate HAHA!)
