What’s up my darlings? ♥
A few weeks ago I got super happy mail from Prima Marketing.
They sent me their upcoming watercolor pan set in Celestial, which is scheduled to be launched at the end of February. They wanted me to be able to play with it a little bit earlier than that (that’s how much they spoil me ♥) and so they sent me the palette in mock up packaging. (How awesome is that?)
I already have in my collection from the same “Color confections” line, the “Classics” “Tropicals” and “Decadent Pies” pan sets and I truly love them all. You can find more info about them in this post.
The minute I got the palette in the mail I swatched it on the spot in my Instagram stories. As usual, I was very impressed with how pigmented these are.
What’s so special about this Celestial pan set?
All the colors are either metallic, some of them pearlescent, but overall the majority of them are iridescent. The hues are so beautiful, and they are perfect for mermaids!
For the longest time I’ve been gathering different pearlescent watercolor sets. So far, besides this one I have a $5 I got from Michaels (very “student” quality. Not quite pigmented at all) and some pans in the Kissho Gansai Tambi palette. The latter are pretty and quite pigmented, but they are not iridescent.
I tried very hard, but the pictures don’t do much justice to these beautiful colors:
I tried my favorites while painting this mermaid. Can’t wait to use this pan set for new mythological creatures!
This is the breakdown of the colors I used:

Now, I would like to hear from you guys. Do you enjoy experimenting with metallic or iridescent pigments? Any favorites I should try out? 🙂
