I can’t take credit for this wonderful money-saving idea. Jorge Royan was discussing sketchbooks versus watercolor pads, and a few of us liked pads better than sketchbooks for many reasons. They are more expensive, but Jorge makes his own!
He buys good 300lb watercolor paper, and I will do that as I get better, but for now I used the inexpensive Strathmore pads I bought on sale at Michael’s. All the corners were clamped firmly, and these were the areas where later I can get a letter opener in to peel a page off the pad. Aileen’s White Tacky Glue was spread around the edge.
I also did the edges on the Fluid pads because they just glue two edges,
so sometimes the middle lifts and puddles. Problems solved, and cheap!
