Re: Introduction to watercolor at center for senior citizens
What a wonderful thing you're doing, teaching watercolors to seniors. I'm a senior myself and after raising 4 kids and 2 grandkids as a single parent. I'm now able to do art work again. I've always used oils when I was younger and trying to support kids without any child support, but now I've decided to use watercolors because they're lightweight to carry around. I can tell you for sure that what you're doing is going to be so wonderful for those seniors.
I just watched a youtube video showing how to make one's own little portable dry pan pallet. She used a big piece of magnet stuff and used bottle caps for the pans. Then she squeezed her tube watercolors into the bottle caps and let them dry. I thought that was just amazing.
I also saw videos of how to make one's own water colors using vinegar, cornstarch and another ingredients and then putting food coloring into the mixture but I don't think that would work very well.
