Second, I would like to ask about paper. In the paper doll version of Robin (my favorite technique so far; yes I plan to add a face), I used regular card stock. It sucks up the ink so quickly that it becomes slightly soggy and the surface is easy to damage. The four moms and two Robins are on Strathmore drawing paper. It worked fine with the ink, though it is thin, and I'm not sure if the (lumpy) layers might show through in collage. The image showing both Robin and his mom is on watercolor paper. I did not like the way the ink felt on that paper, but I thought you might like to see the whole image that I'm using to practice. So,I would also appreciate any suggestions about paper.
