  1. Hi, I am an artist. I work in watercolor/acrylic. As a kid, I always found it fascinating that my aunt (now deceased) colored in black & wh photos. Now I have time to do this. One method I’ve learned about is once the photo is printed on watercolor paper is to spray the paper with workable fixative, then mix the watercolor with thinned modge podge, which I have tried. Not sure if the Modge Podge is necessary? I love working with older photos. Which I’ve collected from antique stores. I know you can color photos with photoshop (which I am not good at). I like real materials. I would love to hear about your process.
