That is truely amazing. And such gorgeous details! I've always loved such seashells, and to use them as inspirations is just a brilliant idea! As said above, I can't wait to see the finished product, and of course when it's your product it will turn out truely amazing. Each time you draw something like this, or start on a new project I'm simply amazed and surprised each time I see the finished product. I think I should stop beeing so surprised soon, as your products never disapoint. Keep doing your fantastic work, Clockwork Creature!! You're truely the best!
Jaquard is my preferred brand. I typically mail-order them. Lumiere is a pre-mixed super concentrated acrylic line [link] and pearl-Ex is a powdered pearl pigment line (mix with other paints or clear medium) [link]
Those look like amazing paints! May I ask, do you know if they would work well on leather? It can be a porous material and so far, the only pearlescent/metallic paints I've found that have worked (when I say "worked" I mean, two coats instead of five like the cheap folkart paints I tried at first) are Golden liquid acrylic metallic paints. Which a tiny little bottle can get costly when you need several for one project.
Thank you so much for sharing the links/products you use!!
