Granulation Medium gives a mottled or granular appearance to colours which usually give a smooth wash, such as Winsor Red or Winsor Blue. By adding granulations Medium to colours that already granulate, such as Viridian or French Ultramarine, the effect is further enhanced.
Granulation is popular wherever you want to add interest or dimension to otherwise flat areas.
This medium is useful in all water colour techniques including landscape, seascape or figurative work. Granulation is popular where ever you want to add interest or dimension to otherwise flat areas.
For maximum effect, dilute water colours with medium alone. By diluting the colour further with water, a variety of results can be achieved. Granulation Medium is resoluble simple by re-wetting.
Granulation is also greatly affected by different water colour papers. For maximum granulations use Rough and for less granulation use a Cold Pressed/ Not Surface.
After a disappointing start with watercolours, I find that this medium is great with inks, acrylic ones especially, so not good for purist water colourists, great for mixed media. Sandi Gray (Warlingham, United Kingdom) on 31 May 2015
