Hello.
i have ordered a set of 12 X iridescent and instead i have received a Set of 25 Iridescent and Metallic colors!.(for the same price)

After closely check all colors, they are the same as in 12 X iridescent color box(except: white and black ) + 15 Another colors which are Not in my Sennelier color referens.

The sennelier numbers are:

120,121,122,124,126,127,128,129,130,131,133,60,63,64,65

Can someone tell which color are each of them?

Marsias: I believe some of those are iridescent colors that have been discontinued by Sennelier. You're lucky to have gotten the extra treat from your art supplier! :)

Wendell- Aren't you supposed to be painting a difficult seascape???? I had tiled screens and it took me a second to find that. Please note corrected post!! Geez, am I getting pounded by people with biting sarcasm that is better than mine. I hate that!! Finally a flaw in the OP forum, there are people with quicker, drier and sharper wit than me. What a bummer!!!

If you haven't looked at your PM, then you ought to see the nice things I said about your work before you chasten me! Unfortunately, I still have to stand in awe of your prowess (sp??); with a brush, that is.

I've checked my chart of the full set of Senn OP's (as they were 2 years ago) and, yes, you've got extra colors. You are really lucky!

I'm wondering if the difference has to do with what Savoir Faire markets in the US vs. what Sennelier produces in France. The current web link below is to the Sennelier site and clearly shows all the colors listed by marsias.

I could not find them listed in the open stock at Jerry's and don't think they were listed on the Savoir Faire site.

Marcias- I'm curious who the vendor was that supplied your new Senns???

Nico-

It OBVIOUSLY means you are destined to create some VERY Iridescent OP paintings. Better get to work!

Ooo, pictures! You make me drool with envy.

Count your blessings, Nico. Especially if they didn't charge you more than you intended to pay.

Oh, pretty colours!
I want to see what you do with them now. I have the 12-set and have only used them once. Not sure where to use them.

That was a great buy, Nico. I'll be interested to see if you like them. I have used them rarely and sparingly.

Lucky you, Marsais, great bargain!!! After Christmas, I got the 10 metallics that were available in open stock in Montreal. I particularly thought the gold ones would be good. I wanted to do a painting of gold-coloured jingle bells before Christmas and none of my colours came close to gold. Jane

As somebody who hasn't painted with iridescent colors before, may I ask what those iridescent colors are good for and how they are used correctly? I cannot imagine when or how to include them into a painting without disrupting the overall color harmony. :confused: :o

I often wondered the same thing and tried mixing one of the golds with bordeaux on my last painting. It didn't work, or at least I didn't like it. You might check out this thread as she used gold for the entire background. Looks great.
