Product Description

Jo Sonja's beautiful micaceous-based colours are for artists and crafters who wish to add a touch of glamour or glitter to a piece, such as the translucent glow of an angel's wings, a butterfly, a fish or the brilliant iridescent shimmer on a mallard drake's neck. Simply mix the iridescent colours directly into your paints or apply after decorating to highlight specific areas.

These Iridescent Colours reflect off the background. When applied over dark backgrounds, the colours are quite vivid. On a light background, the colour appears more soft and subtle. They're fantastic paints to experiment with and can be used in a variety of different ways, so why not give them a go!?

"The Jo Sonja irridescent green paint is the perfect colour to make bowls for Christmas, especially if you use scrunched up cling film to create a crackled glaze effect."

How to Use

Please note, iridescent colors appear milky white until dried. Label palette to avoid confusion.

  • Apply to prepared surface full strength or thinned with medium, depending on desired effect.
  • Use a variety of techniques (eg sponging, stroking, dry brushing, splattering or overglazing) to apply Iridescent Colours. Colour will be more intense if undiluted. Apply undiluted to accent details using a dry brush technique.
  • Thin using a small amount of Flow Medium. Apply with a sponge or brush. Use thinned colour for a glaze over a painted surface. Brush a medium coat of thinned colour over prepared surface. Create various effects and patterns by removing the overglaze with a sponge, plastic wrap or cloth for a ‘ragging off’ technique.
  • For spattering, thin as needed using small amounts of Flow Medium or water for consistency desired. The more Flow Medium used, the more transparent the color becomes. Spatter by pulling thumb over the end of a firm bristle brush filled with thinned color to create desired effect. May be applied over a barrier coat of Clear Glaze Medium so that excess spattering can be easily removed.
