Watercolour Wet on Wet Paper
I find this to be a great paper to use with the children for wet on wet painting. When the paintings dry out the weight of the paper is perfect for making little card and gift tags.
This is thick A3 sized water colour parchment. It has a 'tooth' and is ideal for wet on wet painting. Wet painting allows children to experience the wonder of colour. Simply soak the paper and apply the watercolour paints. Watch how the colour runs, bleeds and behaves on the paper.
With small children and beginners, try setting them up with the primary colours (red, yellow and blue) or even with one colour. Too many colours can become dirty quickly as the child wants to mix and match the colours in the jars. Brilliant primary colours can make every colour in the spectrum as they bleed into and overtake each other at the edges.
Colour is tremendously exciting and like all activities involving quality ingredients requires ritual and reverence to ensure the child is prepared, unhurried and present.
We recommend you use Stockmar watercolour paints. Have fun!
