Bob Ross method of painting is called “Wet on
Wet”. Traditional oil painting is done on a dry
canvas. The Bob Ross method wets the canvas first. On
a white canvas an oil medium called Liquid White is
first applied very thinly to the entire canvas. On a
black canvas an oil medium called Liquid Clear is applied
very thinly to the entire canvas. The beauty of this
way of painting is that when you apply your paints they
can be moved around the canvas (Wet on Wet!) and wonderful
effects can be achieved much more easily.
Bob Ross Landscape Products are unique. The paints were
specially formulated to a much thicker consistency than
normal oil paints. These paints are artists top quality
not student quality oils. The full range of brushes
and knives took years to develop and are of excellent
quality. Because of the consistency of the Bob Ross
oils formulation a full painting can be completed without
the need to let the paints dry as you would have to
with ordinary oil paints.
Bob Ross Brushes should never be put in water. Clean
with white spirit or odourless thinner only.
