To add an element of “bling” to a painting, some artists apply a touch of gold, silver, copper or bronze. While metallics are not something I frequently use, I do admire the use of these paints in other artists’ creations. It can cause two reactions in viewers from revulsion to admiration. This being said, I purchased some metallic paint the other day! Will I be able to control how much I use or will I go overboard? Would a totally metallic painting be boring or fascinating? I think I will try to paint all metallic.
