Day 2 of our Watercolour Explorations class. We looked at ways to use watercolour on other surfaces- so as to not have to mat and frame under glass. We tried :
• mounting a watercolour on a wood panel--- applying heavy gel medium ( we used Golden brand) onto a wood panel and then affixing a finished watercolour. After drying and trimming the piece is protected with varnish ( we used Kamar Varnish, by Krylon).
• painting watercolour on canvas- we used QoR Cold press Ground to prepare a canvas for painting with watercolours. We protected them with Kamar Varnish or Dorlands Wax Medium ( for a more soft finish).
