Why Luminescent Watercolours?ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ
Nature has optical surprises in the colours that you see in birdsÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ feathers, insects, fish, and seashells, many flowers also have a pearly, dewy sheen to them. Consider the iridescence of a snail’sÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ trail or a silvery spidersÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ web. Other things that also have a sparkle, or glow depending on the light, a silvery or golden moon, clouds aglow at sunset, rainbows, the sparkle of snow and ice, and glint of water reflections. DonÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂt forget the sheen of metals like pewter, copper, silver, and gold. There are also mythic subjects that are often thought of as having a special iridescence to them such as fairies, dragons, mermaids and other fantasy figures.ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ
DANIEL SMITH Luminescent Watercolours add that touch of special colour found in nature that regular colours cannot match. They’re made from mica pigment, thin transparent particles coated with highly reflective metal oxides. Luminescent Watercolours show best as glazes over darker colours and are excellent mixed with other colours adding a bit of their luminescent glow.
