  • Description
  • How to use

Adds richness to acrylic colours by creating a metallic/pearlescent effect. Dries translucent and will not oxidise. Can add shimmer or sparkle to a picture even in the smallest amount. Achieve the most dramatic effects when mixing with transparent effects.

What it does

  • Gives a smooth iridescent appearance
  • Increases paint transparency
  • Extends your color without affecting acrylic stability
  • Slows drying time to help you create more subtle color blends
  • Lowers the viscosity of heavier body paints
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality

  • Can be thinned by diluting with up to 30% water - distilled water will give best results
  • Mix as much as you like into acrylic color to create the iridescence and viscosity you want

How not to use it

  • Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as this can result in a foggy, hazy look when dry

  • Lovely effects

    This iridescent medium gives beautiful effects with acrylic paint, the finish is smooth with a mother of pearl look to it. Its simple to use, mixes well easily when paint is added and I've also used it with a pouring and string medium with great results. Choi Leung (Wilmslow, United Kingdom) on 12 Jul 2013
