The Distilled Water Company is London’s leading distributor for distilled and demineralised water. We supply a range of different industries across the United Kingdom including the pharmaceutical, automotive and the cosmetic sectors. But did you know that distilled water is often used by professional artists for their paintings.
Distillation involves boiling water and then condensing the steam. Distilling water results in all of the harmful contaminants and impurities being removed from the water, leaving you with pure H20.
Many artists believe that using distilled water for their watercolour paintings can make a tremendous difference to the quality of their artwork. Some water may be contaminated and effect the colour of the paints. Using distilled water guarantees that your paint will be of the correct tone and consistency.
Mixing Distilled Water With Your Acrylic Paints
Many artists believe that mixing paint with distilled water is a lot more advantageous than normal tap water due to its extremely low mineral content. It is alleged that some chemicals found in normal tap water can react with acrylic paint causing it to be runnier and in some cases less easy to work with.
At The Distilled Water Company, we sell distilled water in 10 litre, 20 litre and 1000 IBC containers. Should you be an artist or in another environment requiring distilled or demineralised water, why not head over to our website. Alternatively you can give one of our friendly customer care team a call on 0845 500 4455 and we will be glad to assist you.
