Make Watercolour Paint Do More

By December 15, 2012

Watercolour mediums

It's not only acrylic and oil painters who can have creative fun with mediums, watercolorists can too! There's iridescence (shiny), granulation (dotty), texture (bumps), gloss (finish), sizing (reduces paper absorbency) and more! Put some creative play back into your life!

Buy Direct Winsor & Newton mediums and Buy Direct Schmincke mediums (these companies do some the same, some different).
