Fluid Paintings on Aquabord (Gone Golden)

Course number : 2462   
« back to classes page

Discover painting on aquabord, an acid-free textured clay surface that absorbs watercolor like a fine paper – no tearing, shrinking or buckling, just vibrant color. What you will love about aquabord is that you can ditch the glass and framing. Experiment with QoR watercolors, Golden fluid acrylics, creative taping and more experimental techniques that you will go home raving about, while creating an individualized abstract painting that comes from within. Students must provide materials listed on website and confirmation.
