How to fix a watercolor


Date: Thu Feb 20 2003 - 06:10:04 PST

I had 11 students try an experiment. We added glue to the water of a
wet-on-wet floral painting.
The kids didn't carefully drop loaded paint in, they watered down their
colors and it all ran together and then they painted into it, before I could
stop them and splattered a lot.
So my question is, can I fix this?
I had one student take black ink and paint the negative space around the
flowers and it "found" the subject again, it looked ok.
Does anyone have any other ideas?
This procedure works on hot press or posterboard and you don't do any mixing.
