This transparent colour has excellent light fast properties and can be used either on its own, mixed with other colours to give them a subtle glimmer, or as a glaze for that special sheen.
One of the colours known as notoriously tricky to replicate or mix, this tube of silver makes adding sparkle a breeze!
"Mix it in with other colours to give them a sheen, or paint a glaze over the top to add glitter.
It is a good thick consistency and gives decent coverage if used alone on black. I love the way it shimmers into its own whorls and swirls!"
Sharon Hurst, SAA Professional Artist
