    Here, Kate:  The colours are a bit redder than they look here.

    I have one of their 6-tube sets, plus some other colours I purchased. Love them. The tin is a perfect size for turning it into a large pan palette. Mine is 4″ x 6″ and is white inside and the lid has wells for mixing paint. It’s not a hinged lid, though.

    I do, too, but I spent all my art money for a while stocking up on supplies. Figures they’d bring it out after all my cash is spent! sigh

    Angela Fehr mounts some of her watercolours on wood and uses a wax finish.

    I have also used matte medium on a gel plate for coating some of my watercolours. Because I spread it on the gel plate first and just press the w/c into the plate, there’s no removing of the paint as there would be by brushing it on.

    Sandra, I’ve used the Bee paper and quite like it. Mind you, I haven’t put it through the rigorous testing you do. I like the 6″ x 9″ size, as it’s affordable and great for doing test paintings, mini-paintings for cards, or just loosening up. 100% cotton, 300 g/m2, acid free, archival. 25-sheet package is $19.99 here, but Michael’s sometimes has specials when I get 2 packages for $30.

    I’ve mostly painted on watercolour paper, and just last year bought some w/c pads. I re-use my blah-paintings paper by first painting on the back, or trimming decent areas to put on cards. Then, I may re-purpose some by using the gelli plate to paint on them with acrylics, using those for cards or in mixed media. Recently I’ve been dipping yuck paintings in acrylic paints to create neat backgrounds. I’ve also gessoed one side of my paint fails (usually on 300 lb paper) and used them for acrylic pours.

    The cherries look great! I’m finding this discussion on whites very interesting.
