  52. Two invaluable takeaways from your post. First, wrapping the magnets in tape...I have arthritis in my hands, and don't use the magnets because I can never get them unstuck from each other. Game changer for me! Second, putting a wash cloth under the watercolor paper...good idea to keep from getting your grid pad soaked and warped. Thank you!
