This free lecture explores all of Golden’s paint lines that are fluid in motion: Golden High Flow acrylics, Fluid acrylics, and the new QoR Watercolor. Learn unique ways of using the Fluid acrylics, and the ink-like High Flows including staining, pouring, calligraphy, pen and ink drawing, and in empty paint markers and needle-nosed Fineline Applicators. Explore traditional watercolor techniques with QoR, and extend that into more contemporary applications: pouring, staining, granulation techniques, blooms, “white-out” tricks (for saving that uncooperative watercolor painting), washes, layering, and using watercolors for monoprinting. We will cover QoR and Golden acrylics in unique combinations, working with the resoluability of watercolor and the permanency of acrylic. Learn how to take advantage of QoR and Golden grounds to create a myriad of surface options: paperlike surfaces from a Hot Press, Rough and Cold Press watercolor surface to a range of color, tooth and grit. Receive information on working on unique substrates, such as wood panel, fabrics, plastics and more. Finally, learn options for protecting your watercolor surfaces without putting them behind glass, using Golden archival varnishes.
All participants receive product information booklets and resources, as well as samples to take home.
