I've recently been using silver and gold metallic gouache from Daler Rowney and Holbein, respectively. They're beautiful and shiny and even scan pretty well. Does anyone have experience with their lightfastness? They both seem pretty fugitive, but what happens to them over time? Do they just lose their shine?

Thanks!

I've only used the Schmincke, which is purchased as a dry powder and mixed up before use. I have not had an issue with them dulling over time or changing in any way.......so far!

In watercolor, I have used Daniel Smith iridescent topaz which is a really nice glittery green gold. It is much denser and more durable that pan metallics. Wyncia
