    Looks like those were really wrong tools for the job

    What did you use? Anyways, I don't think you used the wrong tools... I mean, I could still understand what you draw, so whatever you used isn't bad. It might not be the best, but it's not bad. Now if that thing ended up as one big scribble with no discernible information, then yes, you definitely used the wrong tool...

    Sepia and ink... on grey carton. Turns out when you try to use one on top of the other ink bleeds uncontrollably and sepia turns it brown! Oops ^__^'

    I see what you mean. Did you know that in the early days of watercolor, artists hated the "bleeds" and "blooms"? They used to think that it was imperfect. Then Winslow Homer (I think it's Winslow Homer), used the blooms so effectively everyone started copying it? Anyways... random intel for you.

    Ahha, watercolors still drive me crazy for that reason. Painting seems like some alien magic *___*

    What kind of ink you use acrylic/Indian ink at least those two you won't be able re-wet it when its dried, or are impatience and waiting for it to dry?
    Watercolors are hard and it requires lot of practice, I suggest to start with one color and simple subject matter like still life so you can get some idea how it behaves and you don't get overwhelmed. Its very easy to produce muddy painting with wet on wet, paint goes where you have water or wet paint applied on paper so you don't have to wet whole paper to get bit more control. https://keenewilson.com/page/12220/focus-on-watercolor https://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/water.html

    Some cheap ink, nothing fancy. Thing is, it's going out of control WITHOUT any water. I'm guessing it has to do with the surface.
    But anyways, it's some new ink someone gave me and I've no idea how it behaves in normal circumstances O_o Come to think of it I have a bottle of green ink that acts weird even on normal print paper and gives crazy thick lines... Gotta do a proper review of my arsenal!

    Thanks for the links =)
