Lynne Miller

One artist, Lynne from Charlotte, NC, has shared that she uses the Low Absorbency Base Coat and Dispersions as a fast drying medium to paint large scale murals. Lynne's story:

After attending a class on the Proceeds line at Great Walls Supply in Charlotte, NC, I decided to pick up some new paint for a mural I was working on. I have been using Golden acrylics since I bought my first 4 oz jar back in 1987 while at NCSU SoD in Raleigh. After using Golden Fluid acrylics for years, I decided to try something new. I bought dispersion pigments and a can of deep tint base. I hate running out of a color mid-day while on a job. I used a paint palette with cups for the dispersions and mixed as I went. They worked beautifully and I was so happy with their versatility. By mixing with tint base for the large areas or just adding a touch to my fluid acrylics as I worked on the details, my tool bag was cut in half. I didn’t have to worry about rushing to the art supply at the end of the day because I ran out of a certain color. I love being able to mix a quart or a tablespoon as needed with the same saturated color you get with Golden acrylics. I have since used my dispersions as a staple on many of my projects. Tinting glazes, deep base, adjusting regular acrylics, plasters, waxes … the list of applications goes on and on. I am excited to explore even more possibilities with them!
