Howard,

Great painting! How do you like the liquid mirror. I haven't tried it yet. Is it really reflective?

:wave:

Thank you all for your kind comments.

I do like the liquid mirror. I have used it on several works now and it can be tricky to photograph because it does reflect light so well. I keep hoping they will come up with some liquid gold next.

Lulu, liquid gold is made by Tri-Art a Canadian Company. Very unique product.

Hi! Rheni from Tri-Art here. The Liquid Mirror pigment is very unique indeed, and has the smallest particle size of any pigment available. I have found that mixing it with transparent colours yields extremely successful reflective colours. For a gold, use our Golden Yellow,Transparent Yellow Oxide or Indian Yellow. They look like foil! I've been playing with this colour a lot lately, and it never disappoints. We are glad you are enjoying it!

Had to look up the meaning ... yes, I see the connection with this :D

Love the really subtle colour and tone changes going on with the motif - lovely painting :thumbsup:

Howard, I do love this piece... I too, am a big fan of the liquid mirror. I'm about to try it on a portrait instead of using white to mix the skin tones.

Howard, have you tried the opacifying medium yet? It makes such a difference in the transparent paint and maintaining the rich colour.
