Default I just made a discovery...

I wanted to do some butterflies and did a whole page of them, before I discovered that I had done them on copy paper.
I sprayed the sheet with mat finish spray, watercolored the butterflies, and the watercoloring did not seep through the paper and the paper did not buckle or curl.
I mounted it on a piece of coordinating cs, and you can not tell it is copy paper.

Awesome!

PS: what is copy paper? do you mean like the old tracing paper? or the plain white paper you use in a photocopier?

When I first read your post, I thought "Oh no!" I am so glad it worked out!

Will it save money if we have to spray it with matte finish spray? Is that stuff expensive? Great save, btw, larue.
