I by no means call myself a painter, since I rarely use it because I am so impatient. I have issues waiting for the paint to dry before I can move on to the next step XD'' S' why me+markers=yes.
But I have experimented a little ;D
Thick paper is definitely good. The paper will curl and bubble up otherwise, though sometimes I've had even thicker stuff curl up from the water I put on it. I find it easier to use painter's tape or masking tape or something to tape the paper down to a hard flat surface, which helps keep it from curling up. Won't always stop the 'bubbling,' but I've also pressed my watercolored pieces in or under a heavy book and left it there for a while to flatten out.
I've also used acrylics like watercolor - I really water them down. I also mix acrylic and watercolor together, because I'm a weirdo and defy the logic of not intermixing them XD WOOOOOT!
Dunno if that'll help you any, but I'd say go for it and experiment - It wouldn't be a bad idea to try painting on paper without a drawing on it, so then you can see how it'll react and whatnot.
FINALLY. HERE. TAKE ITTTTT. *Flails*
I hope that worked ._.'' I attached the picture of Barti. Guess we'll find out! xD I did take some pictures of Shark, but they turned out horrible. The camera wasn't liking it when he moved, so they'd be all blurry.
