GOLDEN Iridescent Acrylics are
one of the most unique products available to artists today. They offer
highly reflective metallic variations when mixed with GOLDEN colors. The
GOLDEN Iridescent colors achieve their reflective properties by
synthetically reproducing several natural phenomena - the nacreous, or
pearlescent, qualities found in fish scales or the dust of a butterfly's
wing, and the shiny and reflective qualities found in certain metals
and minerals. "Coarse" Iridescent colors are simply larger particle
size versions of our "Fine" Iridescent products. Coarse colors in the
Iridescent line include Copper, Copper Light, Gold and Pearl. All of
GOLDEN's Iridescent colors produce a luster quality by themselves, or
when mixed with other colors and mediums.
GOLDEN Interference Acrylic colors offer
a unique "interference flip." When viewed from difference perspectives,
Interference colors flip between a bright opalescent color and its
complement. When applied over white or lighter surfaces, the
Interference color is less obvious and the "flip" effect is more
obvious. When applied over black or darker surfaces, the Interference
color is more obvious and the "flip" effect is less obvious. Most GOLDEN
Interference colors are available in two varieties: Coarse and Fine.
They offer artists a range of reflective properties and interplay with
Interference colors are relatively transparent, allowing artists the
ability to glaze with unique effects. Enhance landscapes with
Interference Blue or Interference Green. Add life to wildlife artwork
with Interference Red or Interference Violet.
Combine Interference colors with small amounts of color to achieve
unique color ranges. Add gels for impasto effects or thin with mediums
for glazing applications. Add a very small amount of black to
Interference colors to produce deeper, richer, opalescent effects.
