Golden's new Color Travel colors mix well with Proceed Low Viscosity Glaze


 
Proceed Low Viscosity Glaze was the medium that allowed this application of C.T. Fluid Interference Green-Violet to be applied evenly and beautifully to the ceiling of the arcade running around the piazza in Colle Val d'Elsa, near Siena and Florence, Italy. The glaze mixture was rolled on and softened using a badger hair softening brush. Low Viscosity Glaze levels like "oil" and allowed the Interference pigments to lay out flat and reflect the maximum amount of light. 
 
Artist, Alessandra Tesi, wanted to create the illusion of illumination generated from within the architecture. Using the special interference pigments and the correct amount of angled lighting, she was able to achieve her dream.  
 
Interference pigments both reflect and refract white light revealing a second, third and possibly fourth color depending on the angle from which the pigment is viewed and the background color.

Dean Sickler also offers a great explanation as to how decorative painters can utilize interference pigments to the max in his new book, The Keys to Color, on pages 71 and 72. Click this link to find Dean's book: http://www.thekeystocolor.com/about/ 
It is a great resource for anyone involved with color!
