Welcome to dickblick
Golden Interference and Iridescent Heavy Body Acrylics add an exciting range of options to your creative repertoire. Used alone, or mixed with other acrylic paints, they enable you to achieve color effects that are truly spectacular.
Interference colors "flip" between a bright opalescent and its complement, depending on the angle of the viewer. Relatively transparent, they allow artists the ability to glaze with unique effects. Add gels for impasto texture or thin with mediums. Try adding a very small amount of black to produce deeper, richer, opalescent effects.
Iridescent colors synthetically reproduce natural phenomena, such as the nacreous quality of fish scales and butterfly wings, or the pearlescent effects of certain metals and minerals. When mixed traditional colors and mediums, they impart a luminous quality. "Coarse" colors employ a larger reflective particle size in comparison to "Fine" colors.
Special Iridescent Acrylics
Mica Flakes, Coarse Alumina and Micaceous Iron Oxide: These special iridescent colors to add a sparkly touch or a distinct texture! These extraordinary colors are created by mixing assorted mica partials with gel medium. The Micaceous Iron Oxide, with its rich simmer color and gritty surface, makes a glorious ground for pastels. Palette knife application is recommended.

Great with Polymer clay!
from Southern CA
This paint is great for using as an inclusion in transparent polymer clay. It give a great looking golden vein. It makes a great layer in moku-megani clay work. It is lovely when used in a stack of alternating metallic golden paint colors and transparent clay cut with a ripple blade.
