Each Heavy Body color is formulated differently depending on the nature of the pigment. Colors that tolerate higher pigment "loads" dry to a more opaque, matte finish. Colors that are more reactive and do not accept high pigment loading dry to a glossy finish and tend to be more transparent. Heavy Body colors contain no additives, such as matting agents, therefore the gloss of each color will be different.
GOLDEN Iridescent Acrylic Colors used alone or with other colors, gels and mediums, develop nonfading, nontarnishing metallic finishes. Iridescent Pearl is extremely useful for mixing with other colors for pearl-like qualities. All GOLDEN Mica Flake products offer larger particles for more textural metallic surfaces. Iridescent Stainless Steel and Micaceous Iron Oxide are made with highly reflective metallic pigments.
