I had no idea when I began playing with the Hahnemühle Post Cards
that I would love them so much!
I wanted to mitigate the possibility of smudging when sending my postcards, so I coated them with a thin coat of Gamblin’s Cold Wax Medium, using my fingers to apply.
It darkens the colors just a bit — barely noticeable.
Don’t rub too much or you may rub your watercolor, though I have not yet.
Just remember that after you use this, you can’t use your fountain pens
over the top of the wax — so write on the front before you apply!
