90 lb mysteryPosted: February 18, 2014
I often cut up (actually I tear them to maintain the deckle edge) large sheets of watercolour paper into quarter-size or smaller pieces so that when I run out the door on my way to paint I can grab a small sheet. At the same time I make a small notation in pencil on the corner of the sheet so I know what paper I am painting on. Unfortunately I also have some paper that is unidentified, left over from a previous painting life many years ago. Today I used this strip of something that I really like, but I have no idea what it is. It’s thin, therefore it must be 90 lb weight. It’s not textured but neither is it smooth, it has no watermark and it looks like nothing else in my inventory. I think the only way to solve the mystery is to take the remaining strip to the art supply store and hope that they can match it.
