Novel Watercolor Vehicle? Johnson's Baby Wash!

                                             Pan watercolors were used in this study. A brush is dipped in the "Johnson's Baby Wash" ( non-ionic surfactant formulation in 30% water) and applied to poset-baord. Paint flows nicely and dries quickly. The brush is cleaned in water, rubbed dry with paper and ready for next color.

 Try it!

I find such a wash is great with topcoat oils!

An Illustration for the following story:

"First, we tried cleaning the polluted river by hand. Every other day someone would kayak out to the habitat to remove garbage, but that was not enough. Trash appeared at random times and in large quantities. Sometimes we would remove every piece of trash in the morning and by the afternoon more had reappeared. Thus, the 'Trashbot' was created in our image and likeness. It swims daily in the river and collects the trash. The Trashbot is saddened by the mess, but enjoys having a purpose in life."
