Paper

Postby malcolm » Thu Feb 23, 2017 10:05 am

I marble with acrylics on Methocel -tried all sorts of paper with and without alum, has anyone found a particularly good paper ? I'm an amateur and live in the UK.

Malcom,

I'm an amateur as well from USA. I've had good luck with Rives BFK Printmaking papers with both methocel and carrageenan. I also like to use rice paper of various kinds for cool textures. Paper in general is always an experiment and can get very expensive. Look for sales at art stores for deals. I even go as far as buying a book of watercolor paper for cheap and almost use it for "practice" to get the colors and designs right. Afterwards, I use the better quality, expensive paper which usually turn out better. Also, I alum everything that I marble unless I'm absolutely sure that it doesn't need to be.
