    Curry's Watercolor Mediums
  • Art Masking Fluid: Art Masking Fluid is used to mask areas of the paper making them resistant to water color. Sections treated with Art Masking Fluid must be allowed to dry before overpainting. Once dry these areas remain protected and cannot be penetrated by color.
  • Gum A
    Winsor & Newton Watercolor Mediums
  • Granulation Medium: Granulation Medium gives a mottled or granular appearance to colors which usually give a smooth wash, such as Winsor Red or Winsor Blue. By adding Granulation Medium to colors that already granulate, such as Viridian or French Ultramarine, the effect is further enhanced.
  • Lifting Preparation: Lifting Preparation allows dry washes, including staining colors, to be more easily lifted from paper with a wet brush or sponge. It is an ideal preparation with which beginners can prime the paper allowing corrections to be made to their painting.
  • Permanent Masking Medium: Permanent Masking Medium is used to mask specific areas of the paper making them resistant to water. This medium can also mixed with water colors and is ideal for isolating areas of fine detail. Sections which have been treated with Permanent Masking Medium must be allowed to dry before overpainting. A hair dryer can be used to speed the drying. Once dry these areas remain protected and cannot be penetrated by further washes.
