Welcome to the Watercolour Mediums page.


Granulation Medium

I test Granulation Medium to make even wash colours sediment. Maybe.

The Quin. Magenta did some granulating… I guess I’ll have to add no water at all to get the others to granulate.

Lifting Preparation Medium

This medium is used to allow staining colours to be lifted from your paper easier.

This didn’t turn out at all the way I’d expected….

I wonder if maybe it would help on different watercolour papers, with different sizings…

Permanent Masking Fluid

Permanent liquid wax mask resist for preserving painted areas in watercolour.

This stuff was pretty interesting and added a textural element as well. You get the most obvious results when you paint over the resist delicately and only once.

I definitely want to experiment more with this.

Texture Medium for Watercolour

Texture for watercolour – woo!

This was pretty exciting for me – since I love texture so much…
The medium felt and worked like thin apple sauce… granule porridge. So the texture is pretty subtle – definitely not a molding paste for watercolour. But still… texture!
