Well, it panned out. I've made two watercolor postcards so far, and I can't wait to do more.
It's pretty good paper; I only had one instance where it started to pill under my clumsy ministrations. I imagine that could be avoided with a bit of skill.
They are on the smaller side for postcards, but great for a quick watercolor. Everyone's always excited to get handmade cards.
I must say, these are great. You get a book of 15. They just come right out of the binding, no problem, don't tear or rip. They are nice and thick and there is tons of room of the opposite site to write your note. It is already lined for your to put the receiver's address, which was nice.
I have had to order more cards. Fifteen was just not enough. They were a little pricey, considering the S&H I had to pay to get them, but that was my fault-- I wasn't able to go out to the store and try to get some. So I paid the S&H which made them expensive, but for the happiness they have brought me and their receivers, it's been worth it.
They take on the water well, if you are doing wet into wet painting. THey only curl just a little when drying, but I just jam them into a heavy book for a day or two before I mail them out, AFTER they've dried, of course! Probably my fault for putting on too much water, like I said, I've only been painting for 2 weeks now, and I don't really know much about mastering watercolors yet.
The paper quality is great as far as I'm concerned - perhaps a bit stiffer than the 9x12 pad I have. It seems to take more water to prewet this paper. But considering they are meant to be mailed, stiffer is a good thing. The important thing is that I notice no difference in the watercolors on these and my usual 140# paper.
Since they're going in the US mail system, I seal them with a clear acrylic spray. They've arrived in good shape. But if you are really concerned that the artwork is protected, buy some envelopes.
I plan to use these to create unique holiday art for each of my peeps on my mailing list and for those, I will probably buy envelopes.. I'm looking forward to this project.
Great fun to have.
