    Its just not as harsh as black, but you can build it up to be almost black. just dont spray white over it, the blue shift is a killer !

    well yesterday I add a pink colour to my painting and it now looks like a child painted it with a toothbrush no nice gently out off focus backgrounds no gently blending from a hint of pink to green and from green to shadow's of grey.
    I have my work cut out to day trying to fix the mess I have created but if I can't redeem it I will have to start again or just paint it as a different back ground. But I learnt a lesson Transparent doesn't cover pencil marks very well. also coverage is a bit tricky as after 2hrs It looks quite dark but after about 12hrs it looks a bit lighter anyway it's not going to beat me. I'm happy with the colour but it's strong in the painting where it should just be a hint so onward and upward as they say lol

    Can’t add a picture or don’t want to ?

    Honestly don’t be concerned about posting up a picture, it’s how we can best help, and the best part is you get help from many pairs of eyes, not just one or two people.

    I’ll send you a pm and see if I can change your mind :)

    actually with the golden high flow you can mix it in with Wicked Transparent base with no issues. The Golden transparent is costly .
    The reason some use a transparent base to add their color in is to build the color more slowly without the risk of going to dark to fast.
    Sorry I have not responded quicker but life has had me jumping the past few months and I have not had the time to read every post .
