Watercolour Paint

Paint beautiful and original compositions with a watercolour paint set. Watercolour paint is transparent, which means that you’ll be able to see the paper underneath this paint. The transparency allows you to layer your colours and makes beautiful glazing effects possible. You always want to make sure your painted areas are completely dried before layering though. These paints can take some patience to master, but they’re so unique and lovely to work with. The bright pigments and blendability will have you hooked on watercolouring quickly! You can choose either watercolour paints in a tube or in a pan. Both are great, but pans are a bit easier to transport and you can even transform tubed watercolours into half-pans. Grab the set that works best for you and start painting!

 

How to paint with watercolours? You’ll want to start by gathering the supplies you need, like soft natural hair paint brushes, quality watercolour paper, and your paints. You may also need a palette if you like to mix colours. Simply add some water to your paint and start creating. You can vary the amount of water you add to the paint to capture different effects. Another tip is to wait until your layers are dried before adding more colours. You’ll achieve a completely different effect if you apply layers together while they’re still wet.

 

Can you paint with watercolours on canvas? Generally no, because most canvases are prepared with a material called gesso that can make the canvas not very absorbent. However you can get supplies to make canvases absorbent like absorbent ground or watercolour ground. You’ll want to apply these to your canvas and allow the layers to fully dry so you can watercolour on them.

 

What kind of paper should I use for watercolour painting? The best paper is watercolour paper, which is specifically designed for use with watercolour paint. This paint is available in three textures. Rough paper is highly textured, hot-pressed paper is very smooth, and cold-pressed paper is in between. Cold-pressed paper is the most commonly used type, and the type most recommended for beginners. The paper also comes in varying weights, such as 300 gsm, 250 gsm, and 190 gsm. Heavier papers buckle less when wet. To prevent buckling, you can stretch the paper by soaking it and then stapling the wet paper flat on a board. You can also tape your paper to your board.

 

Watercolour paint can be used in a multitude of styles. Some artists apply it in creative way such as applying the paint to wet paper, using sponges, or splatter painting. All you need to clean up your workspace when you’re done is soap and water. Because watercolour paint dries quickly and cleans up easily, many artists use it when painting outdoors. As you travel, you may want to keep some refillable brushes nearby so you don’t even need to think about having water cups nearby. Whether you’re working at your desk or painting at the park, you’ll love having a set of watercolours for all your creations. Get a set today and start creating your next masterpiece!
