Art Spectrum Colourfix Papers
Art Spectrum Colourfix Papers are sheets of 300gsm (140lb) acid-free hot press watercolour paper screen printed with Art Spectrum Colourfix Primer. With its 16 dense, lightfast colours and fine deep tooth, Colourfix is a superb, permanent, coloured substrate for oil paints, acrylics, inks, silverpoint, oil pastels, even gouache and watercolours, as well as the obvious dry media such as soft pastels, charcoal and pencils.
The natural toothy surface will hold multiple layers of pastel without the need for fixative, allowing the velvet bloom and vibrant colour of pastel to be preserved. Erasing is also easy with colourfix – simply lift off excess pastel with clear adhesive tape, brush off with a dampened or dry brush, or use a pencil eraser. Alternatively, errors can be over painted or areas touched up with the matching colour of Art Spectrum Colourfix Primer.
