Re: Hand Coloring

Hi Mark,

Epson's Enhanced Matte works really well with colored pencils and
watercolor.  I've also heard that Hahnemuhle's rag papers take colored
pencils well.

As far as coloring with oil paints goes, I haven't had much luck unless I
coat the print with something (i.e. a varnish/clear coat) first, thus
losing the "matte" qualities.  My experience with oils on matte paper has
been less than pleasing.
