Artists Features, Tips and Ideas

Preparing a stable surface for painting

Paints and Tools, Tips and Ideas

There may be certain instances when an artist is not concerned with their work lasting a long time; maybe for a one time installation piece or possibly they want their work to speak to the temporary nature of all things. However, most of us would like our work to live on as a legacy of who we were or what we had to say. Me? I’m just hoping my kids don’t throw it all in a trash bin some day!

Keeping that in mind let’s discuss the best surfaces for painting with all those great Liquitex products you’ve amassed over the years.
