What is ColourArte?

An introduction to ColourArte’s paint products

Bling IT Pure Mica Minerals

“A must-have for every Artist’s Box”

ColourArte searches for unique and rare mica to create their signature blends. The Earth Tone Galaxy Colours mica flakes offer the Glitz attributed to glitter.  The signature “moist” pigments dissolve instantly into acrylic paint or resin. 

Prizm Pour®

This most dazzling Prizm Pour paint collection offers a brilliant semi-opaque highly pigmented formula, which is an acrylic metallic water-based paint. 

Can be used on canvas, wood, metal and glass and is the perfect choice acrylic paint painting. If required, add small parts of water to dilute Prizm Pour when needed. For an even more stunning, completed finish, try adding a clear coat of epoxy on top – the results are sure to impress! Be sure not to add a drying retardant, paint extender or any other medium to Prizm Pour as it will reduce the intensity of the metallic finish.  

Vivid PolyPour

Whether you are just starting out in paint pouring or are trying to fine-tune your advanced skills, the key to paint pouring is about quality and consistency. No more guessing about ratios; The PolyPour Bloom base is the perfect blend of acrylic and varnish. Simply mix 2 tsp. of PolyPour with a 1/3 – 1/2 tsp. colour of the dry paint pigment system, and you will be set up for success.

Rezin Arte Epoxy Dry Paint System

The Rezin Arte Luster Pigments Dry Epoxy Paint System is a combination of brilliant colours and minerals. ColourArte’s signature “pre-moistened ” Luster Pigments dissolve instantly into resin. They are compatible with Artist Resin, Casting Resin, and Quick Set Resin.

Primary Elements Mica Technology

Translucent vs. Opaque paints

 

Thanks to our friends at ColourArte, we have a great explanation for our Canadian artists interested in learning more about translucent and opaque paints. Translucent paint allows more light to pass through them as they are transparent, refracting the colour. 

Opaque paints are more reflective (not to be confused with “shiny”). They sit on a surface, preventing light from passing through them. The opacity of a paint colour is determined by how it interacts with a light source.

Whether a colour is opaque or transparent, it is of greatest importance to painters who work with glazes to build up colour, rather than mixing on a palette. Some acrylic paint manufacturers such as Golden, make it easy to judge how opaque or transparent a colour is by having a swatch of the colour painted on their label. 

What acrylic colours are typically translucent (transparent)?

Alizaron Crimson, Burnt Sienna, Dioxazine Blue, Permanent Crimson, Permanent Rose, Prussian Blue, Phthalo Blue, Raw Sienna, Sap Green, Terre Verte, Ultramarine Blue, and Viridian Green. 

Translucent Versus Opaque Mica Pigments:   A brief explanation of mica colour coating technology.

Mica is one of the most important mineral ingredients used in cosmetics and is now widely used by artists to add shimmer and sparkle to paints and other artworks. 

Iron Oxide Coated Mica, (ColourArte Bling IT Satin and Metal Blends) 

Bronze, Copper, Gold, and White coated micas are opaque and more reflective. Iron Oxide will sit on a surface and reflect like a mirror. Light cannot pass through. 

Titanium Coated MICA (ColourArte Bling IT Satin and Sparkle) 

Also known as Interference paint, it is coated with Titanium Dioxide and is translucent by nature. It allows 90% of light to pass through it, creating brilliant light refraction and a strong shift in colour. The term interference means that the dominant paint colour changes with the light when viewed from different angles. For example, if you rub a little Interference Blue on the back of your hand the mica shifts the light to blue before you see the colour of your skin beneath it. 

Colour coated Mica AKA Cosmetic Grade Mica

Commonly known as soap-making mica or cosmetic grade mica, the colour coating is adhered to the flake with a wax derivative and does not dissolve; it’ most common use is making bath bombs and hand-made soap. This does not mean this type of mica can be used as eye-shadow unless the manufacturer specifically states you can. Many artists add acrylic ink as a substitute for the lack of actual colour. The “colour coating” is not enough on its own to achieve the true colour balance required to make paints. Eye Candy, Arteza, Black Diamond, Pearl EX, &  Woodes Goodies are just a few who offer colour-coated micas in their lineup, along with Interference and Iron Oxide micas. 

Primary Elements Arte Pigments (What is this stuff?)

ColourArte created this dry-paint art pigment system by milling and binding dry translucent aqueous colour, micas, and other minerals. Our signature blends of brilliant translucent colour bases, intensified by sparkling mica light refraction, is what separates Primary Element Arte Pigments from other simple Titanium mica powders.
