My First Blog - What is Archival?


ARCHIVAL – I have developed a formula to make the paint, For my ABSTRACT FLOW Paintings, more fluid while being archival. Within that formula are mediums to protect the binders ,opacity, extender of the paint and actually enhance so that the paint does not deteriorate 5-20 years. Water is not a major part of this formula.

[Paints contain: pigment(s) impart colour and opacity/transparency. Binders a polymer, referred to as resin, forming a matrix to hold the pigment in place. extender - larger pigment particles added to improve adhesion, strengthen the film and have binder.]
