Playing with Stewart Gill Paint

Last night I tried out the 6 Stewart Gill Paints I had purchased. There are four Alchemy whites - each with a bit of a cast. White Mist refracts blue, Sea Spray refracts green , Opal refracts pink and White Hot refracts gold. I lke the way they break these paints into groups : Water, Air Fire & Earth . I used the Alchemy paints over a sample of Coulourise blue that I had. Unfortunately, I did not find a way to really show off the glint in the paint. I even tried scanning - with less success that the photos. Yo'll just have to try a jar yourself ! If you're still interested - check out artist cellar.

The photo below is the same idea - another Alchemy paint from the "Fire" group called Afterglow ... it is delicious ! The other sample is from SG's Byzantia line of paints and the color is Acanthus. WOW ! I love it. I hate to think of the amount of money I have already spent in my mind on theswe paints. In reality it will take me some time to build up a stock - and deciding where to begin will be the hard part. SG also makes some VERY cool "special effects products" - I am going to lay with some "Fresco Flakes" they look like iridescent mica chips.
