Watercolour Mediums

We stock a range of Watercolour Mediums from Winsor & Newton

Watercolour Mediums are primarily used to change the rate of drying, increasing gloss, improve flow or provide texture. They provide water colourists with limitless opportunities to add special effects and add variations to their water colour paintings.

Gum Arabic will slow the drying time, increases transparency and gloss giving you work more brilliance of colour and luminosity

Water Colour Medium is usually mixed into the water colour but can be added to the jar of water if you prefer to use it throughout the painting.

A few drops of Ox Gall are added to a jar of water and this is used to dilute the water colour. Ox Gall is also used on very hard sized papers to reduce surface tension.
