Reply To: Best watercolor to hold up to heat!

No – your paints, paper and brushes will all react to extreme temperatures.  Last year, I was about 15 miles away from a wild fire, and I was amazed at how the difference in the way my watercolor supplies acted.

Since you mentioned Daniel Smith, I’m assuming you are using tube paints.  You might want to give pan paints a try.  I know Da Vinci uses the same formulation, so it wouldn’t matter with their paints, Daniel Smith does watercolor sticks – which are very like pan paints.  Do you have any local artist friends? Or a local artist society where you might ask people who have dealt with the same problem?
