Iridescents

Translucent colours for highlighting, creative effects.

• Iridescent Colours reflect off the background. Over dark backgrounds, such as Ebonising Spray the colors are quite vivid. Over a light background, the colour appears soft and subtle. Thin with flow medium up to 50% for thinner coats and ease of application.

Metallic Acrylics

Jo Sonja's Metallic colors are used to achieve dramatic effects  in stenciling, color bands, highlighting, liner work, bronzing,  verdigris and faux finishes. The metallic colors are compatible  with all Jo Sonja's mediums.   The metallic colors can be easily mixed with all Jo Sonja's Artists'  Colors to create different metallic effects. Once dried try a little heat to obtained a burnished look.

Flow Medium

Flow Medium is added to Iridescents and Metallics for thinning as needed for paint application or various techniques such as fine detail or linework and airbrushing. Add to colors when a smooth basecoat is required. Flow Medium will extend the drying time of the paint.

Note: The addition of water to thin Chroma’s Jo Sonja Artists’ Colours or Chroma’s Jo Sonja Background Colours may over-dilute the paint causing poor coverage and adhesion to some surfaces.

 Directions:

  • Mix small amounts of Flow Medium with paint using a brush or palette knife, beginning with an approximate ratio of 2 parts paint to 1 part Flow Medium until desired consistency is achieved. Water has a diluting effect on the pigment and adhesive qualities of acrylic. Its use should be kept to a minimum.

  • Flow Medium may be used to thin colour for basecoating on any surface that a smooth coat is desired including metal surfaces.

  • Dry thoroughly. The addition of Flow Medium may delay drying time. A hair dryer mat be used to speed surface drying.

  • Dry a minimum of 48 hours before varnishing. Allow additional time depending on climate and humidity or if excessive medium is used.

  • Airbrush artists may use Flow Medium to dilute beginning with a ratio of 1:1. A small amount of water may also be necessary for an even flow. It is recommended that any water used is distilled water.

Approximate coverage: 1 ml = 188 sq cm / 1oz = 6 sq ft.

Safe to dry with a hair dryer.

Black Gesso

This primer for wood, canvas and metal provides a smooth fine-grit finish with maximum ‘tooth’. Available in black and white.

Directions:

  • Apply directly to surface using a clean dry brush, roller or airbrush (for airbrushing, thin Gesso with Flow Medium starting 1:1 ratio, adding Flow Medium until desired viscosity is reached)

  • Apply undiluted to stretched unprimed canvas. Apply subsequent coats as soon as previous coats are dry to the touch. May be sanded when dry for a smoother surface.

  • Colours may be altered using Jo Sonja Matte Flow Acrylic or Background Colours. Add in small amounts to tint as desired.

  • Do not mix with oil based products.

 Safe to dry with a hair dryer.

Water based, can be cleaned up with mild soap and cool water.
