Re: Have Questions About Interactive?

Hi, how should Atelier Interactive be stored?
I keep them in the garage and in summer it gets hot in there.
Or should I store them in the house at room temperature?

Re: Have Questions About Interactive?

Hi Mario, I'd store your paints indoors vs. the hot garage.

Re: Have Questions About Interactive?

Hi Jennifer,
I am new to Interactive and tried to do glazing for the first time yesterday on a canvas board..
I am a new painter and these are the first artist quality paints I have purchased. When I applied a layer of glaze I used about 50% water to 50% of paint. I applied the glaze and waited 5-10 minutes for it to dry. I touched it with my finger and it was not tacky and felt dry.
When I proceeded with the next layer it caused the first layer to come off with the brush strokes. I then reapplied another layer and waited a bit longer and the same problem happened again. I am not sure why this happened. Could you please help?

Also, is it fine to use Interactive without adding any water or medium? Or does it always need to be mixed with something before applying to the canvas?

Re: Have Questions About Interactive?

Hi Mario,

Atelier Interactive was designed to be able to be reopened with water or the unlocking formula, so I am not surprised that a glaze made with water reopened the paint. If you want to do multiple glazes, I'd suggest using "traditional" painting mediums like the Fast Medium, Universal Medium or Acrylic Glazing Liquid, for your glazes and/or first layers.

You do not "need" to use a medium with Interactive, if you like applying the paint as is. Generally, a damp brush, from a medium or water, is enough to get a nice, silky flow.

Thanks Jennifer. I thought that was the reason why.
I'll try get hold on one of those mediums.
