I didn’t like them at first, the Conservatory Collection was just a little too loud and garish.
Piñata Rich Gold, super opaque and made with real, shimmering, gold flakes plus, Adirondack Gold Metallic Mixatives, also opaque, have mixed them up a little :)
Alcohol Ink Mixed Media
Dreamscape No. 575 was created with Conservatory Collection Adirondack Alcohol Inks plus Teakwood (from the Mariner Collection). The drop of gold in the sky is Adirondack Gold Metallic Mixative and the sprinkling of gold in the distant mountain and valley is Piñata Gold. I love the increased depth and sparkle from juxtaposing transparent inks with opaque, Metallic Mixatives.
But, that’s not all…
Not as easily seen, but essential in creating the subtle texturing and varied edges along with carving back to the white of the paper in foreground is my newest and most favorite medium being incorporated into the Dreamscaping Process, Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid.
Coming This Fall!
