Gloss Media & Watercolor - Van Gogh brand
On this one I first coated the paper with a glossy opaque paint, let it dry, and began with the watercolor paint. The glossy coat created an almost plastic surface which caused the watercolor paint to bead up. This created a really unique texture but I didn't really like using it. I would however like to use it in backgrounds and possibly on certain areas of a piece....just not the whole thing. Also the surface of this piece is fragile because of the gloss media, it'll wipe off easily..
