Best paper for painting?

Postby Gerardo » October 29th, 2015, 7:55 pm

I've been experimenting for some time with different combinations in order to paint paper. Now I'm trying out different kinds of papers and I'm painting both sides. I liked painting with acrylic paint on brown kraft paper but I'm looking for other ideas. Which do you think is the best paper for painting?

Thanks guys!

You could use acrylic painting paper, but it wouldn't be easy to fold.

Basically I use all the papers I want to fold with, be it thick papers like Tant and Elefant hide or thin ones like Unryu.

Here is for example a sheet of Elephant hide that I painted for the Olymiad:

I often paint Tant, foil (https://www.flickr.com/photos/140736655 ... otostream/ , https://www.flickr.com/photos/140736655 ... otostream/ : you can see I aded different quantities of water, to have different red colors), and sometimes copy paper, with acrylics or Chinese ink. I'm happy with the results.

Hi,

I think Winsor & Newton Galeria Acrylic Colour Paper comes in a variety of sizes, sheets or pads, and is lightly embossed with a canvas texture.
