Re: My new gouache sketchbook

I am wondering if brown paper bags would work also with gouache? I will try it. I could iron out the wrinkles after opening a bag at the seams and then trim to the size I want. Oh....boy, I think saving all those freezer bags will be useful for something now.

The brown paper bags would certainly work, but would not be acid free/archival. If that's not important to you, then I'd say go for it!


Jackie and TOC, thank you!

I feel the same way, Jamie. I've made my own MiTientes spiral books at Kinko's before, but use it primarily for oil pastel. I am curious, however, if you've tried the Colourfix paper? It comes in spectacular colors and is a decent weight, though I have only used oil pastel on it and wonder how wet media would do. The other problem might be with it eating up brushes, as well.

Anyway, just a wondering thought.

Hi Carey. I don't care much for Colourfix as a painting support. I have a lot of it here though....Good idea to spiral bind it and use it for pastels and drawing!
