So, Liquitex, you need to go back to the drawing board regarding how you're sealing these jars.
In addition to the gold, Burnt Umber was used in a mix of gold colors to create the darker edges. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the outer most edge and corners is much darker and gradually gets lighter towards the center. It’s subtle, but you can see it shift colors (probably more of a “you have to be here to see it” kind of thing). But the colors themselves work really well together. I’ve used Burnt Umner for several things other than for my ceiling...it’s a great way to create a faux antique look on things.
- Great coverage, goes on smoothly
- Mixes well with other colors for shading
- No cracked or chipped paint afterward
- Tube and cap make it easy to dispense more paint while painting
I will definitely be buying more of these in various colors! This paint is great quality for the price. I highly recommend this product. In the photo below, the background was created by mixing this white paint with colors from another set Arteza Premium Quality Acrylic Paint Set, Pack of 12 Colors. I also used the white to make the highlights on the tree branch.
And speaking of price, buying here through amazon proved to be much cheaper than ordering through somewhere else. I had to keep on eye on the item for a few days, as the price was fluctuating, but I ended up being able to purchase the 8.45 oz tube for only a dollar above the cost of the 4 oz one! I can't guarantee everyone will have the same luck, but I know I'll be checking here on amazon before looking anywhere else next time I need some more acrylic paint!
