Imprimatura is an initial layer of color on a canvas in painting. It provides the painter with a toned ground which can then unify the process and show through paint layers. I like using this technique to remove glaring white and set a tone for the main subject, whether it's a complimentary color, a certain value, or a color used throughout the painting. The term itself is Italian and literally means "first paint layer".

Our Imprimatura line of prefelt was created to be the perfect compliment to your 2D or 3D wet or needle felted piece. We start with a house carded batt, made on Dante, our carder. Each batt is then divided and hand stacked and stretched. The batts are then partially felted on Josephine, our felting machine. They are the perfect weight for 2D work and can be pulled apart or further felted. Each is approximately 22-24" square and weighs approximately 3.5 - 4 oz.

Sara designed the colors to provide a wide array of options in value, chroma, and color spectrum.

Pergamena is a light neutral made to mimic the pleasing tone of parchment. Give your darker subjects a nice light contrast or use for atmospheric landscapes.
