Colourfix™ Original (Medium) Papers

Art Spectrum® Colourfix™ Papers are sheets of acid-free, 300gsm hot pressed European watercolour paper, screen printed with Art Spectrum® Colourfix™ Primer. The range has 20 lightfast colours all with a fine, deep tooth. It is a superb substrate for pastels, oil colours, acrylics, inks, oil pastels, gouache, watercolours and dry media such as charcoal and pencils.

The natural, toothy surface will hold multiple layers of pastel without the need for fixative, allowing the velvet bloom and vibrant colour of pastel to be preserved. Erasing is also easy with Colourfix™ – simply lift off excess pastel with clear adhesive tape, brush off with a dry brush, or use a pencil eraser. Alternatively, errors can be overpainted or areas touched up with the matching colour of Art Spectrum Colourfix™ Primer. The tough, toothy surface can be sanded, scrubbed, soaked and reworked over and over.

Colourfix™ Original (Medium) Paper is available in 20 colours in 23 x 30cm (9” x 12”) and 50x70cm (20” x 28”) sizes.   We have as of July 2018 also launched Colourfix™ Original (Medium) Paper in A3 size in 10 colours.     10 sheets in every pack.
