In my last post – I talked about this one supply that every watercolorist seems to own – but few actually talk about. If you have already read that post – you know that the supply I’m talking about is a stretching board. If you want to know the reasons why that supply is so crucial – make sure to check out my previous post.
In today’s post – I’m gonna be simplifying my approach to building a stretching board. So here are the steps to DIYing your own watercolor stretching board.
And that’s it – you can use this board over and over again for countless painting. I’ve even used staples in this board for traditional watercolor stretching and it’s held up fantastically. So needless to say this board will last you quite a while – so in my opinion it’s worth every penny.
