I prefer to use Acrylic on heavy weight watercolour paper, I can then make use of washes at the beginning of the painting and have more texture and detail at the end. I use both bristle and soft haired brushes and any
other tools that will give the effect, for the leaking lock a toothbrush! Quite a few of my Acrylics are on Whatman watercolour paper which allows many washes but little correction, it requires 'a 'drier' way of painting' than most people paint watercolour, and Acrylic works fine. The Whatman watercolour paper has ceased production, however St Cuthberts Mill have produced a paper called 'Millford' which is made in the same way as its unique predecessor.
