Set Contains:


Calcined Bauxite

Weipa Calcined Bauxite has a particularly interesting earthy colour mix. This extremely hard mineral is mined at Weipa in Far North Queensland. Calcinated Bauxite can be used in mixed media and collage as well as for adding texture to paintings. Mix with MM2 Impasto Medium, MM4 Gel Medium or MM30 Matt Gel Medium. For the best adhesion it is important not to make the mix too dry.


Lang Lang Sand 3mm

These five grades of cleaned sand contain no impurities to affect artwork. Use in paintings, mixed media and collage, or the finest grade on collagraph plates. Before applying, mix with MM2 Impasto Medium, MM4 Gel Medium, MM6 Polymer Matt Varnish (water-based), MM7 Poly Gloss Varnish, MM28 Polymer Satin Varnish (water-based) or MM30 Matt Gel Medium. Do not make the mix too dry, though for best results add it relatively generously. Large quantities on large canvases not recommended.


Lang Lang Gravel 7mm

These five grades of cleaned sand contain no impurities to affect artwork. Use in paintings, mixed media and collage, or the finest grade on collograph plates. Before applying, mix with MM2 Impasto Medium, MM4 Gel Medium, MM6 Polymer Matt Varnish (water-based), MM7 Poly Gloss Varnish, MM28 Polymer Satin Varnish (water-based) or MM30 Matt Gel Medium. Do not make the mix too dry, though for best results add it relatively generously. Large quantities on large canvases not recommended.


Pumice

Almost weightless, Pumice is rough textural volcanic glass. Applied smoothly, it produces a consistently rough, flat surface. Capable of creating unusual textures on large canvasses due to its light weight, Pumice is also suitable for mixed media, collage and collograph plates. Up to equal parts pumice can be added to either MM2 Impasto Medium, MM4 Gel Medium, MM6 Polymer Matt Varnish (water-based), MM7 Poly Gloss Varnish, MM28 Polymer Satin Varnish (water-based) or MM30 Matt Gel Medium.


Glass Beads 3mm

These smooth round glass beads can be used on paintings, mixed media or collage. For best results mix with Gel Medium MM4, or MM7 Gloss Varnish and Gloss Medium to maintain brightness. They can also be dropped into medium painted onto the surface. Because they are absolutely smooth it is suggested that art works using these glass beads are varnished with either MM7 Gloss Varnish and Gloss Medium, or MM14 Gloss (Turps-based) to securely seal the beads to the support.


Wollastonite

Mix up to 50% Wollastonite to Matisse Background Colours to create a superb textured surface for pastels and charcoal. Wollastonite produces a more uneven texture than Ground Quartz, therefore giving a ground for harder pastels (use Ground Quartz for soft pastels). Wollastonite is ideal for acrylic paints due to its alkaline properties. Add to MM7 Poly Gloss Varnish, MM10 Gesso, MM27 Low Viscosity Gesso or MM28 Polymer Satin Varnish (water-based) to create texture in paintings on canvas.
