In this video, made for the Watercolor LIVE! conference, Linda demonstrates how to make watercolor paints from dry pigment powder, water, gum arabic, and glycerin, and takes her freshly made paints to the beach! Some of the tools and materials are newly available in the Ancient Earth Pigments store. See our recent blog post for details about new products in the store.
Today Linda was interviewed live by Eric Rhoads of Streamline Publishing, and did a quick demonstration of making watercolor, gouache, and egg tempera paints for an international online audience! Check out the replay of the live stream below.
Ancient Earth Pigments will be a sponsor of the Watercolor Live on-line conference, January 27-30. Sign up at a discounted rate before January 10th. VIP attendees will receive a gift bag of AEP products (while supplies last)!
You can use our products for many different applications. In this demonstration Linda shows how to mix pigment powders to match existing paints. Davy’s Grey in pastel is no longer available from the manufacturer. However, using our pigments, you can match the color and make your own pastel, egg tempera, gouache, watercolor, or oil paints.
Because of the pandemic, many art workshops and conferences in the US have been cancelled this year. Some in person events have been replaced with virtual conferences, which have some limitations but also provide some opportunities that are not necessarily there in person. For example, some artists may not be free to travel but can attend a conference or workshop on line! The Realism Live global virtual conference is going to be held on line (this October 20-24) in place of the FACE conference and workshop that was to be held in Baltimore this fall. Ancient Earth Pigments is a Gold sponsor of this event and is contributing gift packets for VIP ticket holders that include samples of some of our products.
We have also prepared an introductory video for the conference describing some of our products, and includes some demonstration of their use. Here is an edit of the demonstration video for your enjoyment. In addition to an introduction to some of our products, we have a demo of color preparations.
Thanks much to our videographer Charlie Kernkamp!
