Metallic Watercolours

By Royal Talens' very own Van Gogh

The Van Gogh metallic and interference watercolour set uses Mica powder instead of pigments. Mica is a natural stone mineral with shiny flakes – in powder format it seems to be very fine glitter. The main difference between mica powder and pigment is that pigments are ground-up ‘pure’ colours that create an opaque even wash. Mica, on the other hand, isn’t optimal for colouring – its main purpose is to give a shiny effect. They won’t create a solid wash of colour. To help achieve a brighter colour, use regular watercolours as a base.
