The GOLDEN Watermedia • Lecture & Demo | Swinton's Art Supply, Instruction & Framing | Saturday, 25. May 2019

Date: Saturday May 25, 2019Time: 1-3pm

Discover the wide range of GOLDEN paints that are fluid in motion: High Flow, Fluid Colors, and QoR Watercolor. Learn how to make the best archival choices from a collection of products. Beginning with traditional watercolor techniques using QoR Watercolor, we move into more contemporary ideas including using GOLDEN products in journaling. This will include an assortment of applications such as: pouring, staining, granulation, blooms, splash, and “white-out” tricks for saving that uncooperative watercolor painting. We will then work with QoR Watercolors in combination with GOLDEN Acrylics to explore the resoluability of watercolor and the permanence of acrylics. Finally, attendees will learn how to take advantage of GOLDEN and QoR Grounds to create myriad surfaces for their work: from paper-like surfaces with the QoR Grounds, to utilizing unique substrates such as wood panels, fabrics, and plastics with GOLDEN Grounds. Finally, we will cover the options of Archival Varnishing of watercolor surfaces, for preservation without using glass. Attendees will receive a selection of the products discussed to take home and explore the breadth and depth of GOLDEN’s professional product line.
On this day, for registered attendees, all GOLDEN products will be 25% Off
Space is limited. Register today!
