Metallic paints - sparkle! sparkle everywhere!!

Updated: Oct 12, 2019

It's time to review more of Arteza products! Yay 🐼 For this piece I've used colors from the Metallic Acrylic Artist Paint Set (36 Colors, 22ml/0.74oz) + colors from Arteza Acrylic Paint set (non metallic) on Arteza Canvas Panel.

Let's start with panels. They are a great alternative to canvases: light yet sturdy + paint sticks to them well (if I may describe it like that). I use panels if I want to create smaller pieces as gifts or just try new techniques - Arteza panels worked really well for me... I used all 10 from the pack in 2 days lol.

Now as for the metallic paints... If you've been following me for a bit you know I am addicted to metallic colors. I fell sad if I'm not using at least tiny bit of gold in every painting I make. So you can imagine how excited I was. There's so many colors to choose from you can get lost, absolute heaven for someone like me. I mixed them with water, no pouring medium and a small tip for those paints: use very little water, add tiny bit, mix... add a bit more water, mix... until you get silky, smooth consistency. At first I've added my usual ratio of water and was crying because paint was too watery. Luckily I learned quickly so not much paint was wasted. Paints are highly shimmery and colors are very intense, something I love about Arteza in general - colors are absolutely gorgeous. They work well not only in pours but also as paint for canvas sides or back of coasters :) yep, I'm applying them everywhere 🥰

Paints come in small trays which makes it easier to store and keep workplace tiny.

To sum up: Panels - absolutely great, perfect for trying out techniques or creating smaller pieces (also I prefer panels if I'm covering piece in resin, I'm always scared canvas will bend while panels are much more sturdy and flat)

Metallic paints - I'm a massive fan. Big selection of colors to choose from, they shimmer like crazy and produce beautiful rich color. I just wish tubes were bigger :)

Peacock house is one of the best place to decorate. In many big countries this thing is known to be more expensive by the time. The different way of Darwin Local Contractors may produce a better lead in this and make a better response.
