BobBlast #233

Using Hot, Fluorescent Colors

Ooops! Sorry - here's the right video. Happy Holidays HoHoHo!

Welcome Back to Another BobBlast

This week's BobBlast is an answer to a frequently asked question about one of my favorite colors - Luminous Opera... that hot, fluorescent, luminous pink! You ask about its bad reputation - that the color might fade away eventually. No worries!

Watch the video: I admire these Holbein Luminescent colors for their versatility when mixed into other colors - such as Marigold or Ultramarine Blue. When mixed into other colors, the possibility of Luminous Opera fading is not an issue for me. 

Besides, I finish the artwork with a final coat of UV varnish, helping the colors' permanency. Actually, I really don't worry that much about it - I use Opera everywhere... on top of a "dried" painting as an overall tint, as well as mixed into other colors - as you can see on the video.

Most paint manufacturers offer these fluorescent colors. I prefer Holbein because of their high pigment content. 

Painting with a side of Luminous Opera on standby is like going to the circus!

Thanks again for watching and telling your friends! All my BobBlasts are archived on my  website  and my YouTube Channel We post new studio tips weekly that offer real content, substance and useful techniques that work for me. And they're free!
