Hi, Dallas. I still have a lot of the inferior quality paints around and don't want to dispose of them. Despite the quality, that paint is still costly should they be dumped? Or would it be wise to mix some of the student grade acrylics with the professional grades?
How do you transfer a drawing to the canvas after preparing the surface?
I am presently searching for smooth painting surfaces. I don't trust those hardboard surfaces sold at the local hardware stores as they may be chemically treated. Can the mattboards used in picture framing be also used as a painting support? Even if they can be successfully primed, how archival are they? The only other alternative would be to order online, which can be a bit costly for me. Looking foreward to your reply. Thanks in advance.
Thanks for your comment regarding my problem. I understood the part about certain colours becoming dull and not to use tap water. However you didn't seem to finish your last statement which is a little confusing. I would also like to know if there is any other water I can use to thin the paint? Or do I have to just depend entirely on acrylic medium to do so? I also want to comment on your beautiful work, which has excellent detail especially those two Zebras! Goodbye.
