11 colors of golden fluid acrylics to get started

“It is the peculiar nature of the world to go on spinning
no matter what sort of heartbreak is happening.”
― Sue Monk Kidd

A palette of 11 Golden Fluid Acrylics for art journaling. If you're into metallic paints, add iridescent copper and iridescent stainless steel. This list balances the flexibility of mixing an array of colors, and the immediacy of being able to drip certain colors straight on the page. The good news is that the smallest size of fluid acrylics is sufficient. You'll use them in DRIPS not globs.

1 drop of dioxazine purple + a gob of gesso = lavender {gesso makes colors lighter, more pastel}. Add Golden Fluid Matte Medium or water to get more transparent colors. For gobs of saturated color, go for tubed acrylics in the same colors.

Art journaling is about play, so play the way you wish to play! I'm curious to learn what 10-12 fluid acrylics (or tubed) would you pick?

If I am allowed 12...
Titanium white
Carbon black
Hansa yellow medium
Quinacridone nickle azo gold
Quinacridone crimson
Paynes gray
Green gold
Phthalo blue
Napthol red medium
Cobalt teal
Dioxazine purple
Transparent pyrrole orange

Actually standing in front of my paints Titan buff and turquoise are close behind these. But with these colours I can mix most other colours in a pinch.

I only have three small 1 oz little bottles of Golden fluid acrylics: Primary Magenta, Ultramarine Violet, and Vat Orange. I have Artist's Loft thicker acrylics in big tubes: brown, red, blue, yellow, green and blue.

How wonderful! I had been wondering this very thing recently - exactly what colors and where to start!
