Fiber Pink

For this painting I added acrylic paint to Golden Fiber Paste. It was not an easy medium to use. At least now I know what to expect when I used it.

Garnet Brown

When I was browsing Golden gels at a local art store, I came across some that had garnet in them. I wasn’t sure how they’d look when they dried. So, I asked a saleswoman. She told me the garnet gels would look like “bloody buggers.” Well, since I was teaching art to teenagers at the time, I figured purchasing the garnet gels would be a big hit with them. And sure enough, they gave me evils grins once they saw my sample painting.

Pumice Pink

Growing up as an artist, I always had my hands in paint. My family had a pumice stone for us to use to help clean our hands. It was great for pealing acrylic off my hands. Anyway, I was very familiar with the feel of pumice when I saw noticed that Golden had it in a gel. Naturally I had to purchase all three varieties.

Bead Orange

This gel medium has little clear glass beads in it. When I started adding acrylic to it, I decided to go with a “Jurassic Park”-like effect.
