What do I need?
Here's a quick run down of the equipment and materials I will be using throughout the tutorials.
I cover all of this in detail plus loads more in the special "techniques" tutorials, included in the free and paid memberships.
The paper I use is hot pressed Fabriano Artistico in traditional white, I use two different weights 140 lb weight which is quite floppy, and 640 gram weight which is almost like cardboard.
