Newsprint and brown paper were used by Picasso, plain painted paper by Matisse. If you are not Picasso it is probably best to stick to light- proof, acid free materials! Beware of commercially printed papers that will fade.


No list of materials can be definitive, providing they are adequately secured and sealed. Some artists attach pieces of wire, rubber, plastic, rope and- in Chris Ofili's case- elephant dung! I tend to avoid anything that it too proud of the surface, other than occasional strands of hessian, and the crusty build up of layers of paper.
