As usual, I failed to read the instruction manual whenever I try something new.

“Step 1: before drawing or inking, make sure that you properly stretch your paper or use heavy paper that can withstand warping due to the absorption of water.”


I haven’t actually started water coloring yet on the piece I drew.  I’m gonna try on some smaller pieces using the same paper first to see how extensive the warping is.  Apparently 300 pound paper is recommended if you don’t want to bother with stretching your paper beforehand.  The pi day strip is on 100 pound paper.

(Oh, and yes I see that I used “it’s” incorrectly in the first speech bubble.  I’ve fixed it.)
