Watercolor Painting Origin and Ideas for ArtistsCredit to @souart16
COMPOSITION
Watercolour paints are made up of four major ingredients such as glycerin, bovine bile, honey, and preservatives to vary the viscosity, concealing power, stability, or colour of the pigment carrier mixture; and evaporating water as a solvent used to reduce thickness of the paint before to application.
SPECIFIC PROPERTIES
Watercolours are made up of pigments and binders that are water soluble. Watercolours can be used by artists to produce one-of-a-kind paintings that creatively express your imagination. One of the most appealing features of watercolour is the ability to achieve transparency and shine in the painting by just adding layers.
KEY FEATURES
Any painting media that employs water as a solvent and may be applied with a brush,pen,or spray is referred to as "aqueous medium." Most inks, watercolours, tempera, casein, gouache, and contemporary acrylics fall under this category.
SURFACE OR MEDIA
Watercolour paper is the most common and traditional carrier medium (the surface on which the paint is applied) for watercolours. Papyrus, bark, plastic, parchment, leather, fabric, wood, and watercolour canvas (coated with gesso specially developed for watercolours) are some of the other supportive mediums for watercolour paintings.
OTHER SPECIFIALITIES
Tube and pan watercolours are the two types of commercial watercolours available today. Because they are already blended with specific water elements, most paints offered now come in typical, collapsible metal tubes and have a viscosity comparable to toothpaste. This paste must be diluted with water before use. Pan paint comes in two sizes: entire pans and half pans.
TOXICITY AND VEGAN FRIENDLY
When watercolor paint comes into contact with skin, it is generally considered safe. But, if you have sensitive skin or are allergic to certain chemicals, you may experience irritation or rashes. If this is the case, always read the ingredients before purchasing any watercolor paints. However, some of the binders used in watercolor are derived from the proteins and fats of animals, making some of them non vegan.
