I like it because it does some natural shading on its on when the colors mix. Also like the softness of it.

LOVE using watercolors,
especially from ColourArte's Twinkling H2Os!! I love either the softness or the intensity of the colors and the fact that they move easily or not depending on how much water you use with them. They dry fast and can be wiped off if you make a mistake, unlike acrylics or oils. You can sketch under or over them with fine or coarse pens/markers so that your art is bold or not. Most of the art in my home is either watercolors or colored etchings. Using them on Yupo papers are AMAZING and of course any watercolor paper/tissues/canvas or handmade papers. Enough

Julie I have to agree with you about the YUPO paper. And yes the intensity can be great as well.

I love how easy water colors are to work with.
You can get great color with kids watercolors!

I purchased Yupo paper at Aaron Bros. Art store here in Calif.though I would think any art store would have it.It is not paper at all, but I think recycled plastic that they turn into the most smooth,creamy "paper" for you to paint on.You can wipe it off,wash it off if you don't like the artwork on it.It is expensive, but really fun to work with.Look it up and it should describe it to you better than I can. I think I paid a dollar a page but you could get it cheaper with a coupon.Neat stuff!

Julie, that paper sounds neat! I love watercolor because like Denise says, it does its own shading. There are many ways to get a watercolor look and I just love the look of it.

thank you all for joining in the quest to watercolor or not. I also love to watercolor. For those who have not tried it, I urge you to do so. After a few times, you will see why we all love it.

WooHoo I finally found my twinkling h2o's after having been lost for a year. Yes I said year. Guess that lets you know I do not have my stuff as organized as I should. Geez

Remember to saturate your little tubs of H20s with lots of water.If you want a light shade of color, you only spritz with water lightly and let them sit for 5 or so minutes.The more you add water, the longer waiting time, the darker the color and you also get more of the mica glitter
! I usually wet mine to where the tubs of ink are half dissolved.I have LOTS of different sizes of paintbrushes also.The different sizes make a BIG difference when painting.
