After my review in the last post, today I’d like to share a video with you as part of the online workshop series Adventures In Acrylics. In the film I’ll show you around the interference colour palette and some of the amazing results that you can achieve with it.

Shimmering Colours (Interference Mediums) Available in six colours: Shimmering Gold, Copper, Violet, Red, Blue and Green. Used straight from the tube and applied to a black surface they produce a magical shimmering, metallic, transparent lustre. The most dramatic effects are on black, where colour shows with electric intensity. – Gold Code 128 075 709 – Violet Code 128 075 710 – Blue Code 128 075 711 – Copper Code 128 075 712 – Red Code 128 075 713 – Green Code 128 075 714
Shimmering Colours Set Gives a shimmering pearlescent metallic lustre when mixed with pure acrylic colour. – Code 128 900 125
Hope you will give these Shimmering Colours a try, they are stunning on dark surfaces. In the coming weeks I’ll share some techniques using them, and I’ve got plans for a Christmas project with them later in the year. As I mentioned in the film, if you can only get one colour, I’d go for the Shimmering Gold, its the one I use the most and I find the most versatile.
If you already have these paints, I’d love to hear how you use them and see your projects with them too.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
