New GOLDEN Web Technique

There’s a new Fine Art Technique called Metallic Textures available on the GOLDEN website.

amyshawlyLos Angeles Working Artist Amy Shawley, explores the many ways artists can create textures from acrylic gels and paints. One exciting direction is using gels paired with iridescent color to create a variety of weathered metal effects. Gel textures can vary greatly from smooth to gritty and from low to high relief. Some gels, like Glass Bead Gel, have a distinct texture while other gels are smooth but vary in viscosity. The Iridescent colors can be mixed with regular Fluids and Heavy Body paints to create a full range of metal effects, from a smooth faux leaf to a textured, aged metal. Check it out!
