Playing with Acrylic on Yupo, Part 2

This is a continuation of yesterday’s blog;  now I’m playing with acrylic on Yupo, part 2. This time I decided to try some Golden Fluid Acrylics that I have from who knows when: Phthalo Blue (Green Shade), Quinacridone Crimson, and Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold plus Golden High Flow Acrylic Titanium White.

First, I put down a few drops of each color, spritzed it with water and then moved the colors around using my home-made lift out tool (a cut up credit card).  I immediately learned a few things.

  • The white gets lost quickly.
  • The Fluid Acrylics are very intense; a little goes a long way. The Phthalo Blue, in particular, is very intense.
  • The Azo Gold changes color a lot, depending on how thick it is.

I have to keep reminding myself that once it dries, I can’t change it (unless I paint over it). I keep looking at them and thinking, “Well, if I wet it here I can…”   But I can’t.  It’s not watercolor.  It’s acrylic. (Sigh.)

But I love the colors.
