To get all those wonderful effects and white spaces left behind when spray you need to remember a couple of things.
First of all, don’t soak and stretch your paper before you spray.
Soaking your paper will take the sizing out of the paper.
You need the sizing left in the paper so that the water and paint will skip across the paper.
You can tape down the paper to keep it in place though.
The second thing to do is to spray the edge of the paint or puddle of paint.
Spraying in the middle of a puddle of paint will only make the puddle larger and add more water to the paint that is already there.
Spraying the edge will get it moving and help it to skip across the paper.
