Testing Transparency in Your Paints

Do your paints come marked to show you which ones are transparent and which are opaque? Some I have bought do list them as opaque, semi-opaque or transparent on the bottles or tubes – but some brands I have bought don’t mention it at all.

If you want a mix of opaque and transparent in your paintings to get the most ‘depth’ then you would need to test your paints to see which are transparent and which are not. Annemarie shows you here an easy way to work it out.
