We have many pieces of Sinopia Imprimatura that are approximately 9"x12" and/or .5 ounces plus.
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.
Sara designed the colors to provide a wide array of options in value, chroma, and color spectrum.
Sinopia is a warm sepia brown. Use this color as a rich beginning or backdrop from which lights and or brights can emerge.
