Re: Arches Watercolor Paper--What I now know.
Donna, you should be able to buy the Golden products at any good art store. Hal is right about the Matisse background colors which are available through Jerry's Artarama. I also understand about Pastelbord. I finally reached a point where it was costing to dang much. BTW, I've been gessoing a ton lately, and yes it's a pain, but it really does work well. I'm so happy I finally gave it a go!
Pat, would masonite board hold up? I think that's a great idea, but is it acid proof/conservation standards?
Mary, how does Stonehenge compare to Arches in quality and price?
