I decided to use acrylic paints in the Moleskine Sketchbook for the letter “H”. I wanted to see how far I could push the paper, so I laid a thick layer of black acrylic paint across the 2-page spread, expecting lots of bubbling. Once dry, the pages did curl, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the paper curled evenly, without bubbling. Also, one the paint had dried and the book was closed for a while, most of the curl flattened out with exception of s slight curl towards the outside edges of the pages. The dried paint left a smooth, plasticized layer which was easy to paint additional layers on top of. I was surprised that the paper performed so well with the acrylic paint and look forward to using more in the future.
