Bob Ross Liquid Base Coats aid in the painting's formulation and keep the canvas wet, the most fundamental step in Bob's technique. Smooth and slow drying, they allow blending and mixing right on the canvas (the basis of the Bob Ross wet-on-wet method). These nontoxic base coats are also used to thin other oil colors for application over thicker paint. Apply a very thin, even coat over the entire surface area using a natural bristle brush, but do not allow to dry before you begin painting. Thin only with Turpenoid Odorless Thinner.

Sample each of these base coats in the value pack--one small bottle of each base coat.

love this
Rated by: John T. M. in Forked River, NJ
Great product that allows a novice like me to blend some beautiful colors and do things on canvas I never thought possible...Just wish they would make a container with a wide mouth so 2" brush could get to liquid white.
Rated by: Francine H. in Oldsmar, FL
Another great product for wet on wet oil painting.
Rated by: sarah l. in new york, NY
I have never really liked oil paints as a medium. With the discovery of the bob Ross wet on wet I, together with my teenaged daughter, who has never held a paint brush in her life prior to this, have been turning out painting after painting and cannot find the time to do as many as we want! The liquid mediums are absolutely fantastic. One can blend the colours directly on the canvas and get to finish a full painting, without having to wait for it to dry, in a little over an hour! A truly wonderful medium!

this base coat makes blending on the canvas very smooth. I never paint without it.
Rated by: Ellen B. in Burke, VA
I have used all three base coats, white, black and clear. They are invaluable in producing a professional quality finish. My painting time is much shorter as I can blend colors on the canvas and paint alla prima instead of the traditional way.
Rated by: Brenda P. in Labadie, MO
As new artist, I found the Liquid Mediums easy to use.
Rated by: Linda A. in Hollywood, MD
My product was delivered quickly so I was able to start my painting sooner than expected. The base coat allows the colors to blend beautifully and even amateurs like me can make beautiful paintings
Rated by: Lisa L. in Beach Lake, PA
I received the products in great condition, and promptly. This product is an excellent product for use with oils and a pleasure for which to work.
Rated by: Henry S. in New Castle, CO
Order was promptly filled and sent out and product was in very good condition when received.
Rated by: Amy P. in Landing, NJ
Liquid white is awesome the way it keeps your canvas slippery and blends with the colors.
Rated by: Mark L. in Claremont, NH
Nice product, flows smoothly onto the canvas. Helped me paint the best sky I ever have, and in a lot less time.
Rated by: Pat S. in Moscow, ID
Easily picked up by the brush and spreads nicely on the canvas--doesn't require much to be effective.
Rated by: sandy s. in ooltewah, TN
