  1. This is not so much for the texture, but for the colours – our art teacher suggested we’d try using beer to wet out paints, as the sugar in the beer makes them brighter!
    Have you ever heard about that technique?

  2. Great tips and techniques! Do you have to use watercolor paper for them to be effective? You mentioned using sturdy paper for the alcohol technique, but does it have to be watercolor paper? What about for the other techniques?

    1. Hey Wendi! I always recommend watercolor paper or mixed media paper with any watercolor techniques as a general rule, but I have used most of these techniques in my bullet journals with success.
