*Wetting the paper is the key to success with this method. Too much, as in soaking, will distort the paper too much, and may even twist the
frame. Too Little, and the process won't work very well. It just takes a touch with the sponge, as in set the damp sponge down and move it
3 or 4 inches while pressing gently. Do in two directions, and that's it!
Step 1: Gather Materials And Tools
Most of the time, I use 3/4 x 3/4 inch pine pieces, ripped to size on my table saw.
A nail gun, if available, or simply use hammer and nail pieces together.
Screws are another choice.
Glue: I like to glue each piece as it solidifies the structure and makes the joints tight.
A cut off saw if available, or a miter box can be used as well.
Watercolor paper of your choice.
Other papers, kraft, copy, poster, etc. See steps to learn uses for these materials.
