Basic Painting

Sunday, March 7 2021

14:00 - 15:30

Reaper and other paint manufacturers produce several paint additives and mediums. Flow improver, drying retarder, wash medium, glaze medium… What IS all this stuff? What can it do for you? Is there a reason not to use it? In this class, award-winning painter Rhonda “Wren” Bender will define and demonstrate the major types of additives and mediums you can use in your paint. If there is time, she will also show you products you can use in figure prep and basing, like sand texture pastes. If you already own some of these products, you are welcome to experiment with them during the class, but you don't need to buy anything to attend.
