Re: Underpainting pigments/brushes on wallis paper

I've just tried the Liquitex Acrylic ink on Wallis - you might take a look over in my thread in the gallery "Glade" - post #44

http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show...=593406&page=3

Really intense color, no pigment graininess, and does not fill the grit at all. I used to see Creatix on Jerry's website, but not anymore.

I don't use Creatix myself, but I just googled it and found it at Dixieart.com - hope this helps.

Re: Underpainting pigments/brushes on wallis paper

I have had some difficulty with Createx Pure Pigment undiluted using it as an underpainting. When it is undiluted, it seems to form a coating on the wallis paper - kind of slick where the pastel won't really lay on there. I don't understand, because it is supposed to be pure pigment.

Re: Underpainting pigments/brushes on wallis paper

Sandy, I put 6 drops of a color into my muffin tin, then wet a 2" wide brush and dilute it only that much. It gives rich, saturated color and doesn't make any real coating, as you see in post #2. I can't imagine why that's happening to you. I've used it for a number of years. Something is wrong there... Question--did your brush or palette have some oil on it?

Re: Underpainting pigments/brushes on wallis paper

I've also used Mount Vision's watercolor - they comes in small bottles with a tip. Here is an example of their intensity:



This was done on Wallis and spread with a foam brush, but also dripping the blue onto the yellow with the tip on the bottle which created the blooms on the yellow to become the trees.
