Paints & Pigments~ What's In Your Tube?
Saturday, June 8
9:30 am-3:30 pm. $50
This one day workshop is a day all about our paints -- the pigments used to make them, their properties, how they interact, and the many different paints by different manufacturers. What are the names and aliases of the “best” single pigment paints? Why and what are those numbers are on the tubes? What do I need to know about transparent, opaque, staining, and granulating? Are there dangerous combinations? Get the research-based answers in one spot on one comprehensive handout, and then explore with paints of all types at stations for hands-on experience. You will leave with over 60 swatches of the "best" single pigment paints (provided) plus some of the most highly recommended convenience paints (multiple pigment tubes), which can later be glued into a journal if you wish. You will also have the opportunity to explore mixing with the various paints.
