Star Colour: bright effects



Today let's talk about a special colours line, thought specifically for Mixed Media: Stamperia Star Colours.



Two different colours palettes for six nuances: ancient gold, gold and silver; green, blue and red. They're acrylic colours (water based), changing and iridescent. They're perfect to give metallic glares to dark backgrounds, and particularly suitable to be used with black Modeling Paste and dark thick colours, as Vivace acrylics.


They're very creamy, the colour is concentrated: few touches applied witha brush are enough to give light and  metallic shades to your works.



You can use them on canvas, moulds, for original decorations or, as done by our teacher Monica Paruta, to create "glamour" fashion accessories.
