Stretching Paper

 

You can stretch your paper to ensure perfectly flat results and easier painting when using watercolour. In this quick demonstration Linda shows you how.

You’ll need:

Watercolour paper
A drawing board (ours is just a piece of MDF from a hardware shop cut to the appropriate size)
Gummed paper strip (from art shops or online)
A tray larger than the paper
Sponge

Approximate run time: 4 minutes

Presenter: Linda Kemshall
