MTN Water Based Lecture

Saturday, June 4th, 2016

1pm – 2pm

FLAX, Fort Mason Center
2 Marina Blvd, Building D

San Francisco, CA 9123



It's time to start incorporating artist grade spray paint into your mixed media or painting styles! MTN Waterbased aerosols can be used inside your studio, on your paintings with artist colors such as Ultramarine Blue, Napthol Red and Azo Yellow-just to name a few. These Acrylic paints can be brushed and blended just after spraying to get the effects you are used to with tube paints. Or push it further and see what you can do with the customizable spray nozzles.

MTN representative Lynn Sauter, will present a lecture on this newest technology of aerosols. Montana Color's Water Based Paint can be used on almost any surface including watercolor paper, canvas, printmaking paper, styrofoam, metal, wood, clay pots, and even fabric. Learn how imaginative and fun it is to create using MTN Water Based Paint!

Sign up now, seats are limited.
