Hello barbosradu

I think you should use watercolor paper as I believe absorbency is an important quality for watercolor. Watercolor paper is actually a cloth of sorts and is very absorbent. Without this quality you will not be able to use many of the techniques this quality allows.

I just wanted to respond to your post. I also posted here and received 0 replies. It's nice to know you are interested in art and I wish you good luck. Please find someone else at this forum who has been ignored (views but no replies) and respond to them.
