Make your own background paper - Part 1

Make your own background paper.

Get the paper very wet with water and let it sit for a few minutes, then while paper is still wet, spray on one or more colors of the color washes.

The color should travel along the water and blend nicely.

To give the paper bold splotches, sprinkle or spray rubbing alcohol onto paper. To give the paper a subtle pattern, sprinkle with table salt while the paper is still wet. Once the paper is dry, brush off the salt.
