Developmental Deep Eutectic Solvents ( DELs) Paint Formulation by David S. Soriano
This DEL has known biochemicals that are non-hazordous. No waste, in principle.
Some other DELs I prepared did not work well. R &D to be done.
Check back often for updates!

Conversion of Pan Watercolors to Oil Paints/ Emulsified Linseed Oil by David S. Soriano
Keep pan set closed. Add more drops of emulsion before painting again.
Great for a class and artist experimentation at all levels! I am using the cheapest pan set I own. As you know, some sets are of a very high quality.
I research modified linseed oil ( drying times) , but this can be done on limited budget and space.
When Henri Matisse was recovering from an illness, his mother gave him a pan of watrercolors. he became..... Matisse!
Artists often recall fondly starting art with these humble sets!
I will upload more infor and images as I progress!

Deep Eutectic Solvent ("DES") / Dye Developmental Paint.
Deep Eutectic Solvent ("DES") / Dye Developmental Paint/ David S. Soriano
Yellow food coloring used with minimal water. Foundation can be poster board (shown) or bare wood ( not shown).
Layers shown built up in 15-20 minute intervals. Minimal water used and a few drops of water-based polyurethane will protect dried surface / UV screening.
Paint is being developed. Check back! A skilled artist will adjust eye/ hand/ brush to paint and platform. Ist coat is weak but each coat gets easier to apply.
Paint can be left open to the air since DES is very non-volatile. A drop of water can be added as needed. Minwax's "polycrylic" can be added as the water-based polyurethane varnish. The acrylics crash out and cannot be used.
