Color Mixing with Luminescent Watercolor Adding luminescent watercolor to your palette opens a new dimension in color mixing. If you are looking for a non-conventional way to explore color, or simply want to add a little shine to your work, experiment with a new mixture and see what discoveries await you.
Introducing luminescent pigments to your watercolor palette brings more to your painting than shimmer and shine, especially on dark colors and backgrounds. Try them over tinted watercolor ground for a real treat! What many artists have discovered is that while these pigments do possess reflective qualities, they also add dimension, brightness, tone and texture to your paintings when mixed with standard watercolors.
Changing Hue with Iridescent Watercolor
Each of the luminescent pigments shines with reflected light, adding instant brightness to mixtures. When mixing with iridescent pigments it is important to account for this added light as well as the hue of your mixing color.
