Watercolor paint is made from the same pigments as those used in oil, egg, acrylic and other media; it uses another binder: gum Arabic. It is water soluble and normally used on paper. I bought a large number of different colors and painted them with a large sable brush on J. B. Green paper pinned to a slanted surface working top to bottom not avoiding occasional runs.
