Introducing luminescent pigments to your palette brings more to your painting than shimmer and shine. What many artists have discovered is that while these pigments do possess reflective qualities, they also add dimension, brightness and tone to your paintings when mixed with standard colors.
This set examines the properties of Iridescent colors reflect light directly, like a mirror, resulting in intense color and sheen.
Changing Hue with Iridescent
Luminescent pigments tend to travel in wet washes on the paper. Some of the most intriguing mixtures result when mixing iridescents with granulating pigments. In a mixture of Iridescent Garnet and Prussian Blue, the heavier Prussian Blue pigment settles into the paper first, creating a base layer of granulated deep blue. As the mixture dries, the lighter Iridescent Garnet pigment settles over the top creating a textural, sparkling gray-violet.
Each luminescent pigment has its own hue and properties that create an expansive range of color choices for painters. In addition to pigment hue, or color, luminescent paint can also be described by four pigment types—iridescent, interference, duochrome and pearlescent.
