How to stretch watercolour paper

How to stretch watercolour paper

When painting wet on wet, to avoid the paper buckling, it is a good idea to stretch the watercolour paper if it is 140LB(300 grams per square metre) or under in weight.
The fibres become stretched when wet and the paper will remain flat providing a perfect surface to paint on.
