Using aquaboard is an interesting venture. The colors land so brilliantly on the surface, and do not dry much lighter as does traditional watercolor paper. The paint is easily removed in areas where you want to lift the color. It has a textured surface, so must be careful not to remove this texture when lifting. I did that once and ended up with a very smooth surface which definitely behaved in a different fashion.

Playing with complimentary colors here with another of my treasured tea cups.
