My board by Dtronaustin My board by Dtronaustin
At the request of my good friend :iconkisssh0t: I have taken some pictures of my desk and other goodies

This is one of my main boards I use to stretch watercolor paper on. As you can see it sill has some left over paper on if from the Plastic Chapel piece I just did. I soak the paper and then tape it on to the board and wait for it to dry so that I can work on it.

Awesome Don! Thanks for sharing. So, you have to leave the paper taped down while you work on it?

For sure man :) Yeah the paper stays taped so when you wet it again when painting it stays taught and when it dries and you cut it off you get no wrinkles or warped paper.

Taping never worked too well for me. Tacks didn't work either. When the paper dries, it still pulled off the tape and tacks.

Sometimes the tape can be faulty if it's kind of an lighter or cheaper tape. The surface you are taping to would need to be something that the tape can adhere too as well. I have made boards from masonite I buy from Lowe's and that seems to work out alright. I've never tried to tack anything down but I don't think I would like that so much.

Wow... so you tape the paper to the table to work on it? That's really interesting.

Yeah it's kind of like a tape that has a dry glue on it. First you soak the paper in water for about 2 minutes then you take the paper out of the tub of water (I use my bath tub LOL) and you put it on the board. Then you take the tape (it comes on one big roll) and rip off the size of stip you need and wet it and place it on the corner of the paper and repeat until the whole sheet of paper is taped down. Then you have to wait for it to dry but when that is done you can work on the paper. When finished you just cut the painting off the board.

Hence all the scalpel marks.
