Golden Products Demo: Watermedia – Mixed Media & More
with Roy Kinzer
July 20, 2017, 7 – 9 pm
In this lecture/demo we will explore the vast potential of Golden gel, mediums and pastes. Many of Golden’s products fall in the category of “watermedia.” Come learn the wide range of techniques that they can be used for – from traditional uses, to printing to college and much more. Learn how to extend your paint by as much as 70% and create any desired texture and effect. Did you know Golden acrylic gels, mediums and pastes are great adhesives for mixed media work?
This lecture/demo will also help to demystify pigments. We will compare the slow drying OPEN line with Heavy Body paints. You will learn about controlling drying time, as well as techniques associated with oils, such as wet-into-wet and glazing. Introducing QoR (pronounced “core”) the first major improvement to watercolors in 150 years! Check out these paints, the colors are so intense!
