Gouache - Powder Metallic Colours

Metallic powder colours
It feels like using molten gold when you utilize these powdered metallic colours. Stainless. These metallic powders are feather-light, inalterable and ready for any use, thanks to simple ingredient and chemical innovations. Just “water” the powder to get liquid gold and silver, ready to be used with the brush. Once called chrysography and silvering, these techniques were the height of the goldsmith’s art and also of the decorative. Today they are available to everyone, perhaps as glimmers of a new golden age.

First application: 100% Maimeri Puro colour: Maimeri Puro tints are highly concentrated so some colours appear very dark when used in their pure form.

Second application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Colourless Medium, i.e. a neutral unpigmented paste. This medium is used for thinning the tints, enhancing the flow and emphasizing the depth of the thinned colour.

Third application: 10% Maimeri Puro colour + 90% Glazing Medium to emphasize the sheen of the tint and the different degree of opaqueness between the colours.

Fourth application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Titanium White, to emphasize the undertone of the tint and highlight the concentration.
