PRLog - Jan. 24, 2012 - EXTON, Pa. -- Shannon MacDonald has taken her concern of enviromental issues to heart and is now using a ‘green’ paint called Envirobase® by PPG. The waterborne paint is the safest on the market for keeping toxins out of the environment. Currently, Shannon is the only artist in the custom paint world using this product for illustration as demonstrated when she recently turned heads at SEMA 2011 in Las Vegas with her newest ‘green’ painting titled ‘Angelic John’.

Shannon says “Keeping the environment healthy has always been a key factor for me but, as a painter using an airbrush, the process involving harsh paints has been tough. There was nothing else infallible to use.” She continued “When I heard about PPG’s environmentally friendly paint, I thought – ‘Really? Could this be as good as it sounds?’ Sure enough it is! It’s fantastic to know that the paint industry is getting onboard when it comes to green consciousness. This is only the tip of the iceberg for this particular industry and I am more than happy to be participating at the emergence of the waterborne age.”

Shannon’s first paintings created with the new PPG custom waterborne paint were done in black and white. They include the cover for Jude Southerland Kessler's first book, 'Shoulda Been There, and The Cavern Club's 4-Part painting featuring 'The Beatles in the Early Cavern Years'.

PPG waterborne paint contains water as the major ingredient instead of solvents and volatile organic compounds. These paints are better for the environment because they reduce volatile emissions by up to 80%, improve the air quality for the work environment and reduce hazardous waste. Waterborne basecoat paints are composed of 70% water, 10% organic solvents, and 20% pigment, metallic and pearlescent particles.

Shannon will be demonstrating her use of Envirobase and her painting techniques later this month in Hawaii and New York.
