This craft paper was a nighmare to sketch on! It had a wax surface that did not like ink or watercolour at all!

Anita,

I remember having to use a substitute paper for a large commission, I normally used Arches but my store was out. I spent two days doing the pencil for the art. The very first application of watercolor, the paper fell apart like wet toilet paper.The substitue paper had no sizing/starch. I had to restart from the beginning after mail ordering Arches.
