Did you see my earlier article and video where I made my own paints? Check it our here if you missed it.
It certainly made some fabulous looking paints, especially the sparkle mica colors – but how would they actually perform in a poured painting? There was only one way to find out!
I’m testing them out on a mini canvas and figure I don’t have much to loose. The micas didn’t cost anything, so it’s just a bit of Floetrol wasted if this doesn’t work out. I can always reuse the mini canvas.
But it’s not wasted – it’s amazing! Wow, the metallics, the sparkle, fabulous. I’m so excited by the trial I wish I had jumped in and tried something on a larger scale. Check out the slideshow below for some more wet and dry photos as well as some close-up details. I recommend giving it a try if you have access to any micas. Just check they are water soluble (see the previous video) and go to town!
