Wax on Wednesdays Shellac Burns with Metallic Pearl Ex Pigments !

 This week some quiet painting time exploring 
Pearl ex powders as tinting for shellac! 
I often work on several pieces at once to let things set up and cool on each 
layer before I begin a new one. 
When working with shellac I often have even longer
 rest periods between layers allowing the shellac to cure a bit as well. 
This particular piece took several days to complete with the 
rest times . 
The Pearl Ex powders definitely did not disappoint !
I  am in love with the "Aztec gold" Pearl Ex pigment and 
the way it looked with the blues .
