How To Print On Watercolor Paper

"Did you know you can print onto watercolor paper at home on a simple inkjet printer? You can buy specialist watercolor paper for your printer to do this or just cut sketchpad watercolor paper to size and use that. Paintings printed on watercolor paper look more authentic and can even be mistaken for originals. But one of the coolest ways to use printed watercolor paper is to print outlines onto the paper and then paint them with watercolors. This would be great to do with the many free coloring pages available to print and then paint."
