Weekly BobBlast Issue 295
Day Glo Paints? Yikes!

Welcome Back to Another BobBlast!
Those brilliant fluorescent glow paints get a bad rap! Used by themselves, they tend to have no permanency, which means these colors may eventually fade, in time. Scary huh?

However, the experts at Holbein Artists Paints gave me good technical advice - when mixed in with other acrylic paints - the luminous paints will kick up a color in surprising ways!

For instance, when I add the Holbein Luminous Opera (hot pink) to Ultramarine Blue, the color turns into another favorite of mine… Periwinkle! I will also use the luminous colors to just add a spot of importance - just to kick it up a bit. Look at the video to see both ways I use the luminous colors!

Holbein conveniently has a set of six Heavy Body Acrylic Colors in Luminous Rose, Opera, Red, Orange, Yellow and Lemon. They are NOT SUBTLE COLORS and that's one reason why I paint with them. These brilliant colors are not for the faint of heart - but instead challenge the strong, creative types… like you!

Go get 'em Tiger!

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! We appreciate your interest, questions, comments and support!

Some of our subscribers have asked about the "behind the scenes" people who make the weekly BobBlast possible - so we want to give a shout out and thank Bo von Hohenlohe for editing the BobBlast videos. Bo also produces websites and helps authors self-publish book. Please visit his website at www.bvhprods.com .

Below is a list of featured workshops - but did you know that I also offer private sessions in my studio? Perfect for beginners who want a crash course in watercolor or acrylic or for artists who are designing an exhibit and want to bounce ideas for content and techniques. I devote 100% of my studio time to you! Designed for 1 to 3 people - if you are interested or have questions, email kate@robertburridge.com

Here's a quick reminder and some upcoming workshops and dates.
