What Every Artist Needs to Know About Paints and Colors
By David Pyle, VP/Division Publisher for Art, Jewelry and Yarn Interweave


How important are light-fastness? What determines the long-term stability of colors and how can you maximize their permanence? How do you keep mixed colors brilliant and true? What's our current understanding regaring the safe use of common art materials? Understanding the tools can help you unlock your expressive process in remarkable ways. This session includes making pigment from bugs (really!) and demonstrations from atop tables and chairs.

David Pyle is the author of What Every Artist Needs to Know About Paints and Colors (Krause, 2000), as well as more than 100 published articles about art materials and techniques. A painter, he has served as the director of technical education for a major art materials manufacturer.
