Unrivaled substrates for pastel and other fine art media. Colourfix is made of acid-free, archival watercolor paper or board and features a lightfast acrylic primer with a coarse ground of pigment and a mixture of several types of silica which impart a fine tooth. This tooth grips the media like nothing else we've seen. Available in 340g weight watercolor paper with color priming in ¼" sheets measuring 9½ × 1½", 50 × 70 cm (19.7 × 27.6") and 70 × 100 cm (27.6" × 39.4") each featuring a beautiful white border and 1200g weight watercolor board available in 50 × 70 cm and 70 × 100 cm sizes.
The primer allows you to work in several layers with little to no fixing and allows the use of wet media such as oils, watercolors and acrylic colors for mixed media works. Colourfix primer is available separately and is the same used for priming the sheets. Use them to prime any paper or board or to cover unwanted passages or to "touch up" smudges or for reverse painting effects. Primers may be mixed to create unique hues. Clear Primer makes virtually any surface, even glass, a pastel surface and is excellent for experimenting allowing you to add pastels into your watercolors, acrylics or oil colors.
