Lise,

i have tried this medium, i am not impressed with it. You mix a little with some paint, then you paint normally. When dry it glimmers... but it doesn't look very natural to me. I prefer the true light of the paper shining through the paint...

I agree, I used it on the water in my water lilly picture and did not like it at all. I almost ruined the picture trying to get it off.

Thanks Rod, Anne-Claire & Miss Mouse for your replies. This is the kind of info I was hoping for.
