Incorporating gold has a rich history in painting. From illuminated manuscripts to the “Golden Phase” of Gustav Klimt’s paintings, artists have explored the richness of gold to enhance their color palettes.
Contemporary painters continue this tradition by using tubed metallic colors for unique effects in their work.
Gamblin Copper, Rich Gold, Pale Gold, and Silver are made by suspending bronze and aluminum powders in an alkyd binder. It’s the light reflecting from all those bits of metal that create the “metal finish.” The real metal flakes scatter light in many different directions giving surfaces painted with Metals a soft, lustrous appearance.
