Description

 

Master the art of making watercolors so that you can create vibrant high quality watercolor paint yourself!

 

You have been thinking of making your own watercolors for a little while now, but you have no idea where to start.
Maybe you even already bought the materials, but it seems too daunting to really get started.

  • Let me help you demystify the process of making watercolor so that you can turn any pigment into an artist grade watercolor paint. Yes you heard that right! Most handmade watercolors are of a very high quality.
  • Experience the state of relaxation when mulling your own paint.
  • Discover my method for making watercolors. A method that you can repeat with every pigment.
  • Produce beautiful watercolors that you can use in your own paintings!

 

During this live workshop I will be guiding you through my 4 stages of making watercolors.

The 4 stages

  1. Preparing for success
  2. Pigments & picking colors
  3. Master the process of making watercolors
  4. Test, refine & develop the perfect recipe

 

Some topics we will be covering:

  • Developing your own recipes so that you can work with any pigment
  • Preparing your own binder with gum arabic crystals
  • Tools and materials
  • Where to find the best pigments
  • Working with mica pigments
  • How to make separating colors
  • And more!

 

The goal of the workshop

At the end of the workshop you know the steps to create your own recipes and you have made about 4 different colors yourself. Because you will be making your paint during this workshop, you can ask me for direct feedback during the process.

 

Included in the online workshop

  • A three hour live workshop where I will be teaching you everything I know about making watercolors
  • Three hours of fun with a group of like-minded people
  • A list with the tools and materials you will need for the workshop (this list also includes cheaper alternative options for the tools you’ll need).
  • My ebook “Making Watercolors” (€15,-)
  • Asking all your question during the live workshop and after the workshop when you will start your own experiments

 

The pigments on the materials list are easy to work with and most of them are affordable. If you already have (different) pigments and you don’t want to invest in new pigments, just bring the pigments you already have. I will help you through the process.

Do keep in mind that if you have to order some materials and that you have to do this in time so that you have all the things ready for the workshop on December 11 .

In the week before the workshop, you will receive an email with the Zoom link.
