Hi guys, welcome to my art channel and thanks for being here ❤️
Another gradient/ombre background swipe experiment today, on a 16” x 20” (40cm x 50cm) canvas.
Brand not known of the White and the Pale Blue.
Liquitex Light Blue Violet
Mont Marte Sky Blue
Mont Marte Cobalt Blue
Liquitex Phthalo Blue
Mont Marte Paynes Grey
I allowed this to dry for 24 hours.
Taubmans Doors & Trims Gloss in Neutral (this is a water based paint that is untinted. In some countries it is called Deep Base). I added a teaspoon of Amsterdam Pearl Blue and it did show upon drying and left a shimmer over the entire piece.
My consistency, however, was still way too thick even though I thinned it with water and a splash of Binder Acrylic. Upon drying there were a lot of pinholes from air bubbles which I couldn’t burst due to the thickness. Needs to be much thinner!!!
TLP pigments, Boomgel Stains, Amsterdam acrylics, palette knives, silicone stir sticks and silicone pour mats can be purchased from https://fluid-art.co/
Atelier Dioxazine Purple
Liquitex Bright Aqua Green with a couple of drops of Blue Acrylic Ink added
Art Alchemy Opal Magic Teal/Pink
My pigments and tube paints are mixed with untinted (neutral) gloss house paint (water based) and Jo Sonja gloss varnish. In some countries you may need ‘Deep Base’ you’re looking for one without any (or a very small amount) of titanium white, or it will make your colours pastel.
Please see video #92 for how I mix my colours (both pigments and tubes).
Atelier Rich Gold
Atelier Tinting Pearl White mixed with a healthy dollop of Atelier Titanium White
Amsterdam Turquoise Green
These were mixed ONLY with Australian Floetrol (approx 2 – 2.5 parts to 1 part of acrylic paint).
I also drew on a few gold swirls once dry as I didn’t think there were enough showing that I had marked with the edge of my palette knife. I used: https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B0B1VF4K7Y/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

My lazy susan is glass and 20” which was purchased from Coles supermarket, they can also be sourced from variety/dollar stores and on Amazon. The heavier the spinner, the easier it will spin, I’d also suggest you get the largest one you can so you can easily use it for larger substrates too. I have a 24” (60cm) wood round placed on top of my lazy susan.
My metal spatulas are artist palette knives, they can all be purchased from https://fluid-art.co/
