To start our journey to apply personal watercolor painting ideas on the paper, prepare the paper. You can use the cold press watercolor paper, or hot press watercolor paper. The difference of both is only the surface. Hot press watercolor paper has smoother surface than the cold watercolor one. There is no need to use normal drawing paper, because it will turn out very wet and you will just drop it to nearby trash bin.
After the paper, you make sure you have the brush and the watercolor painting palettes. Some recommendations says Grumbucher Goldenedge 4620 Round Size 3 is good for beginner. For the watercolor you can try Sakura Koi as it has a lot more color gradients. You also need old napkin to cover your clothes from the spilling out watercolor and a mug of water for combination to set your saturation. Without waiting for long, you can start write or draw whatever you want in your greeting cards for your love ones. Don’t forget to combine some colors and make darker – lighter type of painting to make it more beautiful.
