Watercolor Swatching Sheets - Neat and Organized watercolor - Paintable and Printed done-for-you Charts
NEW IMPROVED PAPER STOCK - better and smoother swatching
I created this sheet as a tool for my own color organization and to help demonstrate color swatches in the watercolor classes I teach, and I loved them so much I truly believe they'll be awesome for other folks, too!
Whether you teach, paint professionally, paint for fun, or just love color - these ready-printed sheets are a fantastic way to keep the watery mayhem of watercolor in a consistent shape and place.
While a lot of you may want to print a file like this yourself, a lot of home printers do NOT create the water-resistant print that you will need, and they will NOT handle the thick 140 pound paper that even a simple swatch sheet needs to convey all the details you'll want to track.
I've printed these sheets for you, cut to a convenient letter size (8.5x11.) There are places to track watercolor brand, lightfastness ratings, pigment codes (SO important!) and color names.
The swatch area is nice and big, and includes a black bar so you can track opacity in your paint. These patches leave enough room to see granulation, try out a lift, or even light-hold tape over half the swatch and hang it in your window for your OWN lightfastness testing.
You'll love having these handy sheets add some neatness and consistency to a process that can be very scattered at the best of times!
Sheets are sold in packs of three and six, and ship in a rigid mailer and a plastic sleeve.
