    • 7 iridescent colours (silver, gold, dark gold, bronze, dark bronze, reddish bronze, red bronze)

  • Carborundum: dark gray paint, which feels like fine sandpaper after drying. For example suitable to work on with pastels.
  • Graphite: dark gray paint with a special shine. The pigment used in it is graphite powder.

Experiment with special colours

There are many ways to use the special colours of Ara. We suggest users to experiment with different colours to get to know its properties. All colours have their own effect.¬†For example, the result of pearlescent paint on a black background is very different than on a white background. Black paper absorbs more light, which increases the ‘pearl shine’.
