So I usually sketch what I'm going to paint on the canvas before I paint it on there but the issue that I'm having is that I use graphite, which sometimes gets mixed with the paint. Is there something I could use instead of the graphite to put down and map my stuff first before painting that won't mix with the paint? Thanks in advance. :biggrin:

Wasn't this very question asked yesterday by another Newby?
