A very late entry to Paper Artsy for this Pigment Color challenge.....
I continue to love working with texture pastes and gels after exploring these for Paper Artsy recently. After reading Astrid's recent post about saving our bees, I played around some Ken Oliver Color Bursts, thinking I would try to achieve some crackle by mixing some powdered pigment into the crackle medium.
I first mixed a bit of gold Primary Elements mica powder into matte medium and applied through a Tim Holtz honeycomb stencil, and then applied the altered crackle medium. I then applied metallic gold acrylic paint, and it was immediately clear that the crackle was not happening, although the Color Burst background is pretty. I added some gold metallic acrylic paint, but still no crackle. I like the glow I got when I heavily diluted the paint. But still, not a go. I forgot an earlier experimentt mixing some type of pigment with crackle paste, which also failed to get the crackle!
After the black mica version dried, I added some stars by stenciling with Wendy Vecchi gold embossing paste,
I made one more version, this time using copper Primary Elements with Wendy Vecchi translucent texture paste:
