I’ve had some questions regarding liquid watercolors so this post is all about liquid watercolors. The brand I use is Handy Art. They’re maybe not so common, but they are locally produced. From what I understand, they are sold through Nasco, under their name. After discovering the vendor at our local child care conference, I’ve been using their liquid watercolors and “Handy Spots” which are like Do-A-Dot painters. Of course, Discount School Supply and other places sell similar products.
Liquid water colors:
Handy Art® Liquid Watercolors are concentrated liquids that provide deep color strength straight from the bottle. Transparent colors and washes can be achieved by diluting with up to 4 parts water. Available in regular, fluorescent and metallic colors, our palette provides the artist the range to explore the layers of the watercolor world.
Handy Art® Liquid Watercolors are washable and will launder out of most fabrics and surfaces. Some colors will fade over time as these are dye based, not pigment based colors.
Sometimes we use them full strength, other times diluted. Either way, you don’t need a lot so it lasts a long time.
We really like the pearl, silver & paints. They add so much to art! We haven’t used the brass, gold and copper much yet.
Here are some of the ways we’ve used liquid water colors:
Cornstarch Sidewalk Paint
Ice Cube Painting
Dipping, Soaking, Mixing
We can’t be without them!
