Advantages of Watercolor Paint:
- Watercolors: Mixed with water and brushes cleaned with water. Paint can be lifted off by rewetting. If paint squeezed from a tube has dried, it becomes reusable if you add water.
Disadvantages of Watercolor Paint:
- Watercolors: Being quite transparent, it’s hard to rectify or hide mistakes in a watercolor painting. Need to allow for colours being lighter once they’ve dried than how they appeared when you painted. There is no white paint in watercolor; the white comes from the paper you’re painting on.
How Expensive is Watercolor to Use?
Watercolors are the cheapest to set yourself up with; all you need buy is a set of basic colors, a brush or two of different sizes, some paper, plus a board and brown gummed tape if you intend to stretch the paper.
