New Watermedia for Bob.

This week's BobBlast is about watercolor paints... with a twist! 

I refer to my work as  watermedia - if it dissolves in water, I paint with it. 

Watercolor paints traditionally come in tubes or pans. Very portable and easy to travel with!  Then came acrylic paints - tubes, bottles and jars. And most recently, Fluid Acrylics have been introduced as a new type of watermedia. Fluid Acrylics are kind 
of a hybrid... is it a watercolor or an acrylic? Yes! ...and not really. Fluid Acrylics flow 
like watercolor paint - and yet, the creamy, thick color has a bit more body.

Watch the video below. I demonstrate using Fluid Acrylics. I take advantage of their vivid transparency. So, this is what I do - Change it quickly with a transparent Acrylic Fluid. When dried, not only is it permanent - I can continue working on the art work.

With all the new paint currently being introduced into the Art Market right now, I thought you should know a little about these Acrylic Fluids.

Okay, Watercolorists - Keep it Wet!

Don't forget. Watch the video!
