THE UNTOLD STORY OF “WATER TO PAINT”
FROM MRS. CECILIA HAMILTON, LONGTIME FRIEND OF 20+ YEARS, PROFESSIONAL MASTER ARTIST IN WATER COLORS, AND WIFE OF MICHAEL HAMILTON, AUTHORIZED AQUATHIN DEALER. CECILIA PURCHASED HER FIRST AQUATHIN 25 YEARS AGO FROM DR. JEAN MARIE DANZE IN BELGIUM.
THE UNTOLD STORY OF WATER TO PAINT
Mine is a tale of water and pigment. There is something awe-inspiring when water touches dry pigment. Fantastical shapes appears, what was hidden inside the imagination is now revealed and colors dance carried by water to full expression The first time I witnessed this miracle as a child, I was sold. My medium was going to be water-based!
The choice of a pigment was no laughing matter. It had to be archivable, transparent or opaque and above all have a high grade of lightfastness. Only the best brands were candidates.
But of course I always took water for granted: any water would do!
That was till we lived in Thailand and China for several years. In Thailand pigments started to react strangely to the non potable tap water. There was a distinct lack of fluidity and a dulling of colors when they settled on paper.
Instinctively, I started to use Aquathin water and what a difference it made, colors were reliable once more!
(We had connected with Alfie before our Asian adventure and were lucky to not only have our Aquathin with us but our kitchen top was serviced locally for the first two years we lived in Chiang Mai, Thailand!)
The love story between pigment and Aquathin has been long-lasting and was rekindled when we resided in Florida for a number of years. The water was pretty harsh and chlorinated and old habits dont die I found myself resorting to what we call our sweet water
Today we are blessed to live in an area where the water quality is still remarkable although highly mineralized and hence. there is always a pot of Aquathin water in the immediate vicinity of brush and paint.
Have fun following the flow of color and water on my new site cecilehubene.com
As you and Michael know, we receive many Letters of Satisfaction and phone calls. In fact I received a call yesterday from a gentleman who is so thrilled how Aquathin cleaned his multi-troubled well water over the years, he told me he thinks about me every time he takes a shower! I said I get that a lot.
But your Colors For Water goes to my heart. I and Aquathin are deeply honoured and I will always cherish your prose. I look forward to sharing with our Team, Dealers and all our Customers around the world.
With love and respect,
