What could be more important to the longevity of a painting than the proper selection and preparation of the substrate you are working on? Having a vested interest in the success of artists using our products, we want to highlight some of the concerns coming from the field of conservation regarding surface checking and the […]
GOLDEN Color Pouring Medium Matte (CPM Matte) is a very new and exciting product for 2019. Unlike most acrylic mediums that develop an initial “skin” when drying, this medium avoids skinning over and therefore is quite resistant to “crazing”. The added benefit is this process allows for air bubbles and tool marks to readily disappear. […]

A dynamic language, enabled by color, is the thread that winds through the show. Ann Walsh’s color is amplified, saturated, buoyant, made inescapable. Color selection and color relationships are pre-eminent. Nine […]
For artists who push the boundaries of traditional watercolor, work in sizes large enough that framing is not practical, or just dislike the barrier created by glass, varnish is a valuable option for protecting their paintings.1 Varnishing is likely to alter color, value, contrast, granulation, and the appearance of the paper in a watercolor painting.
