Impasto art with metallic shimmer

10/27/2020 |

When gold clings to silver and copper sets an accent, metallic colours are in all their splendour. With the KREUL el Greco Acrylic 4-piece set Metallic Colors, glamorous works of art are created that captivate the viewer. The pastose acrylic paint in study quality is rich in metallic pigments, which inspire to play with shimmering effects. A little metallic paint works as a noble eye-catcher in a work of art. We think that the colours of the Metallic Complete Set are a masterpiece on their own.

The 4-piece set contains the four colours: silver, gold, red gold and copper. As with all KREUL el Greco Acrylic paints, the metallic shades can be painted pastose and buttery. The paints dry quickly and shine wonderfully when dry. All four shades of the KREUL el Greco Acrylic 4-piece set Metallic Colors are opaque, so that the painting surface is no longer visible even after the first layer of paint.

 

The buttery paintable colours are semi-opaque and are perfect for impasto art. Almost reverently we let the painting knife glide through the paint and apply gold, silver, red gold and copper. We are enchanted by the noble shimmer that the light casts on the resulting colour relief. The play with colour is intuitive and encourages us to create a painting that lives solely from the interplay of metallic effects and ductile depth. Due to their consistency, the colours of the KREUL el Greco Acrylic 4-piece set Metallic Colors are ideal for working with a painting knife. With a bristle brush, however, interesting surfaces can also be created, as the brush stroke remains visible.

The KREUL el Greco Acrylic Metallic paints look fantastic in combination with black. In the manner of impasto art, we apply gold, silver, copper and red gold in high layers. However, the colours of the KREUL el Greco Acrylic 4-piece set Metallic Colors can also be painted very thin and rather glazed. Whether as a single accent or as a metallic picture composition: on a white background the metallic colours look extremely elegant. If you would like to achieve a cool look, apply the colours on a black painting background. Have fun experimenting!
