This webinar is the first of a new series of educational webinars, Creating Colour, intended for ambitious beginner painters through to professional artists who want a better understanding of the technical properties of their media, including both traditional and digital media. This first webinar in the series will provide a general introduction to the pigments and binders used in paint making across many categories of paint, and how the‘ingredients of any given paint affect the properties of that paint and therefore the ways in which artists can use them. We thank CSA NSW Division committee members Veronica Colvin and Dr Jean Pretorius for organizing this new series.
"Having a basic understanding of the ingredients and processes required to make paint can offer a feeling of greater connection to one’s materials. This is similar to knowing the basic parts of a car engine, while you may not do your own repair work, it removes the black box mystery. So, while we do not expect people to make their own paint we do hope to build a sense of understanding of what is in the tube. I am very passionate about coatings (paint) technology and desire to share this knowledge with you, and there is no need to know any chemistry to follow along". - Ulysses Jackson
