I’m determined to add granulation to these pieces, so I’ve nabbed some primatek colours from the Daniel Smith brand: zoisite and kyanite. The zoicite has massive separation. Basically, the binder just flowed out all syrupy and sticky while the pigment remained in the tube. I had to give it a swirl with a toothpick.

I have a few more granulation and special effect materials to test out before I compose the larger pieces for this project.

A swatch test of kyanite genuine, and zoisite genuine watercolor paint.

So much granulation! Both of them came out really nicely, but the kyanite has some glitter in it. I didn’t expect that, and wasn’t sure if it would show up. That’s going to make these pieces really special, I think.
