Explore the difference between mineral and modern pigments and how this relates to clean color mixing, glazing, and the creation of fabulous new hues. Learn the unique properties of fluid & heavy body acrylics. See how Interference and Iridescent paints can produce unusual effects.

Get an understanding of the many Golden gels and mediums and how they can change the texture, saturation, and intensity of your work. Check out the amazing new grounds, including the new Digital Grounds, to prepare surfaces for painting, drawing, pastels, and mixed media.
