View Full Version : This is wierd - and interesting

I was painting a dark blue backround sheet to do white calligraphy on. Stretched the paper on an art-board (hard resin?). Painted very wet, and many wet layers, with lots of spritzing of water. The piece was soaked when I finished.

When I took the dried paper off the board, I discovered that a lot of the paint had actually soaked through the paper, as well as seeped under the edges - AND STAINED THE BOARD. It's rather pretty (the brown vertical band is a stain from a previous painting). The back of the paper is interesting, too. Notice that I had the embossed watermark down, so no paint went under it on the board.

Just wanted to share this wierd surprise.

Looks like the paper saturated with color that may have caused it ,a strong blue stain there too
A good learning there . Reminds you that you are painting on rag- cloth really .
