Paint Consistencies

Join Vinita Pappas as she shares her expertise on different paint consistencies and how they can add a new dimension of magic to your artwork. Drawing inspiration from Joseph Zbukvic's out-of-print book, "Mastering Atmosphere and Mood in Watercolor," Vinita dives into the four main pigment consistencies she swears by: tea, milk, cream, and butter. Most painters are comfortable with tea and milk consistencies, but to achieve that wow factor in your paintings, you need to explore the other two consistencies. The cream consistency is thicker than milk and provides beautiful saturation of the color, while butter, which is pure paint straight from the tube, can add little accents of interest that will take your artwork to the next level. Don't be afraid to experiment with these consistencies and mix and match them in different parts of your painting. A combination of all four can create a beautiful and interesting piece of art. So take the plunge and join Vinita as she walks you through each consistency, revealing how to use them to achieve a range of different effects, from lost background washes to foreground accents.
