Preview: Golden Paint’s QoR WatercolorsSeptember 13, 2014
I was preparing to make a fresh batch of gouache paint, and looked online to get some supplies, when I stumbled across a new product from Golden Paints called “QoR” (pronounced ‘core’.) It’s a new type of watercolor paint.
The binder in this paint is Aquazol, which is a brand name for a synthetic resin polymer that has been used in art conservation for decades to repair paint and paint surfaces.
I’ll be placing an online order for this as well as the new watercolor ground primer that Golden has come out with to see how I like it. If anyone has already given them a try, please leave a comment. Aquazol is available online, so if this works out I may try making my own paints with it. That would be more economical.
