If you're new to watercolor painting, you might be confused about how to use tube paint. Here are my 3 favorite ways to paint with watercolor tubes.
This method makes it easy to mix up large batches of colors. Simply squeeze paint onto a mixing palette, add water, and paint.
This method uses fresh paint poured into a mixing palette. Look for a mixing palette with a lid to keep the paint dust-free.
Since watercolor reactivates with water, this is a convenient way to use watercolor tube paint! Pour the paint into empty paint pans. Let it dry for a few days.
Dried watercolor paint pans can look different, so it's important to swatch your colors.
