I brought back a couple of palm tree paper sketchbooks from Mexico for Nicole and Alexis. They were wise to leave them unopened and to eventually give them back to me. I haven’t found a medium yet that adheres well to the odd paper.
I thought India ink would stick to almost any kind of paper. Already Sharpie markers, watercolor and fountain pen had failed miserably.
I’ll try acrylic paint next. Maybe that will work. I don’t give up easily.
