The Perfect Whites! [artist review on highlight products]
Hi, beautiful people!
Around a year or so I was looking for the perfect white ink/paint/marker whatsoever for highlights. In my mind it supposed yo be super opaque, really thick, but with a nice flow and it should work with watercolours and acrylics at the same time. Crazy fantasy?
Not at all! I finally managed to find The Perfect White for all my projects so now I am happy to share. Whether you are just curious reader, artist fellow or a crafty person - hope you will find something interesting.
Here comes my White Army:
As you can see I was looking very hard=)
And here you can see the contest results.
For me the winner is Dr. Ph. Martins's Bleed Proof White.
Why it is the best?
It has nice semi-liquid texture.
It has a really bright white colour.
Works perfect with watercolours and acrylics.
Comes in a quite big size (compare to others).
The worst was Uni Paint Marker.
And here is why:
Awful, terrible smell of chemicals.
Each time before white colour appears something yellowish drops first. Unfortunately I ruined several etudes because of that.
It works not so good with watercolours.
Bleeds all over and you can't predict when and WHY=)
That is it! Thank you for reading guys!
