|Recommended Winter Card Supply List
If you want to paint individual cards:
- Watercolor paper (140# CP) cut to fit standard envelopes or
- packaged watercolor cards with envelopes (make sure they are labeled
Watercolor Cards or Mixed Media Cards so the will hold up when using
If you plan to scan and duplicate multiple cards:
I recommend and use Arches 140# CP due to it's durable surface that
- Watercolor paper (140# CP) any size in the correct ratio.
allows me to scrub and scratch the surface without damaging the paper.
- packaged Watercolor Cards or Mixed Media Cards (as listed above)
Winter colors are often thought of as cool and blue and that's a good place to start.
Cobalt Blue Indanthrone Blue Quinacridone Violet
Ultramarine Blue Quinacridone Burnt Orange Verditer (Blue)
Cerulean Blue Quinacridone Gold Quinacridone Scarlet or Coral
These are suggestions, additional colors can be added or mixed in, use what you have.
