The different characteristics of Winsor & Newton
- Mixing medium: Slows drying of watercolours, allowing more time for blending. Extends working time even in hot climates. For maximum effect, dilute with medium only. Can also be mixed with water.
- The granulation medium: This increases the graininess of the color, giving a mottled appearance to colors that typically give a smooth wash (e.g. Winsor Blue), or enhancing the graininess effect of colors (eg French ultramarine) For maximum effect, thin the color generously with medium alone. Always work with horizontal painting.
- The iridescent medium: This medium gives pearly or shimmering effects to watercolors and is particularly effective when mixed with transparent colors especially on dark backgrounds. Mix with transparent watercolor or apply over dried wash. Shake well before use.
- Texture medium: Contains fine particles which add fine texture and can be used to give a sense of depth and structure to watercolours. Apply directly to paper or mix with watercolor. Shake well before use.
Preparation for lightening: Easily lift dry washes, including coloring colors, from paper with a damp brush or cloth. Apply directly to paper and allow to dry before painting . It is recommended to cover the entire surface before starting to paint.
- Aquapasto: Aqua pasto is a translucent gel medium that reduces flow and thickens watercolors and gouache to give an impasto effect.
