Any artists here have experience putting paint on a print? I’m in the process of making this digital drawing (sketch attached 👇), then print it on something, then add metallic gold paint in some small places. I’m wondering if ppl have suggestions on what kind of paper to print on, and what kind of paint (or ink?) to use.

@alexlaw I paint over prints regularly in my fine arts work. Epson's velvet fine art paper off a laserjet can even take watercolor and acrylic washes. This image is looking great btw

@alexlaw anyway, a matte print with any metallic acrylic would look great I bet. Share what you do and the results, I'm excited to see!


@rhea_ewing thanks so much for the suggestions! :D
