I use fantasia, but I'd like to experiment with a couple different brands. Fantasia is the only one I can find around here though
The only art store around here is more of a craft store and it's really expensive. Meijers sometimes has good art supplies for fairly cheap, though, but they don't have a very wide range. A Michael's is being built in town, though. I'm super excited about it
I'd prefer Blick's, but the closest one is in Chicago and that's still too far.
Maybe it's the type of paper I'm using, though. I used some random watercolor paper, I'll mess around with papers when I have the money to do so. Is bristol expensive?
