Welcome Back

Earlier this month I introduced you to Daler Rowney’s Interference colour acrylic paint. I’m still in love with this and wanted to share a few more pictures of projects I’ve created using the paint.

The interference colours are most impressive when used over dark colours, so these books feature black card that I embossed and then used a selection of the shimmering colours over the top. They are tricky to photograph and really pop when you see them in real life, the colours reflect the light so are even more dramatic than metallic colours. Do try some if you can, they are amazing.

Here is a close up on the textile book;

So glad I learnt some bookbinding skills, I couldn’t bear to cover up these backgrounds so used them for covers for my hand-made note books. Will be making some more of these as little Christmas gifts for friends later in the year.

Hope you like them and get to try some interference colours soon.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back

As part of the Adventures in Acrylics online workshop series, I’d like to share a way to spice up your existing colour palette, with the help of Interference colours. If you are a colour magpie like me, and would love all your favourite colours as metallic or interference colours, there is an affordable way to do this. In today’s tutorial I’ll share just one way to achieve this.

This is just one way to make your palette metallic and later in the series I’ll share another option.
