My first Moly page


Here is my first ever Moly page... my sign-in page. One thing I have learned already is that this paper doesn't play nice with watercolor. I usually work in a moly with watercolor paper. I guess I may have to venture into new ways to add color. Working on my portrait now and then ready to send on. And the adventure begins.

Yes, I like gouache and it doesn't play nice either, water based is not so good sometimes, but this is wonderful, I can't see any problems with it at all!

I also found out today the papaer of a large sketchbook is not for watercolours(( Will post my first piece these days....oh.

The sign-in page is so lovely! (=

That's great!

Markers work well, but with lots of bleed through so back pages are useless. Colored pencils work really well :)

Also, water soluble colored pencils.

Fantastic combination. In addition to what others have mentioned, you can add a dab of liquid soap to break the surface tension with watercolor.

Very nice watercolor!
I know very well how hard to work with this paper, and you did it great!

Mellisa, thanks for your tip - I'm going to try it!
