Psalm 118:8... Printer/Watercolor Test

Today I decided to do a test.  First I tore a couple of 8.5" x 11" pages from a 22" x 30" sheet of watercolor paper.  I wanted to see if I could print something using my Epson printer onto the paper then watercolor it without the ink spreading when I added water.


Below is like the original file that I printed (I closed it without saving it so I had to recreate it to share with you)  Everything but the text was added by hand:

The large font is one I have available under the "My Font Store" in the menu above called MFH Stitches. (the "e" is different now because after I saw it printed on my original I decided to change it).

You are welcome to download the black and white version as soon as I can figure out how to do it!  I use to use Google Docs but I don't think that exists anymore???  All I could find was Picasa so I downloaded that and it has been loading every picture on my PC forever now!!!  I have 1000s!!!  I'm hoping it will also help me see what I have where.  We shall see!  You can try right clicking and saving it that way, I'm just not sure of the .dpi.


  1. Nancy, I love this idea. I have tried it a few times also but only used 65 lb paper. I was afraid to use something like 140 lb. What lbs did you use if you don't mind me asking?

    1. e Fabiano's cold press 90 lbs. it worked great in my printer, used it just like any other paper.....don't mind you asking at all! It lets me know someone is out there reading it!!
