I mix all my colours from this list by mixing the colours in acetone, allowing it to evaporate and passing the residue through a fine tea strainer. Store them in 7 ml glass jars with snap on lids. Pigments vary considerably in density so I have packed them in 15ml jars which are filled and then settle, so weight and volume vary from colour to colour. More expensive pigments are sold in part jars and minimum weights are indicated.

Every pigment seems to be a different density, weight and price. For example Turquoise weighs in at a weighty and pricey 35gms @£9.00 bottle whilst black costs only £1.75 for 20 gms. The pigments then settle in the bottle! I have priced the pigments into quantities suitable for a single conservator .Where the original name is self explanatory I have kept it but in some cases I have renamed it and included an indication of the colour where possible.

I recommend that the Golden glazes are purchased in the 236 ml size as the glaze tends to thicken in the jar if kept on the workshop shelf for to long. For further information read Golden artist colours product information sheet Porcelain Restoration Glaze. Click here for information sheet on Golden Porcelain Restoration Glaze.

Airbrush transparent extender

Airbrush transparent extender 119 ml
£7.25
Airbrush medium for thinning fluids 119 ml
£7.25
Airbrush transparent extender 10 ml trial pot
£2.00

I use transparent extender to thin the glaze and paints. Transparent extender is the clear of the airbrush colour range. Its use results in a tougher film and slows the build up of gunk in the airbrush nozzle. I stick the object under a heat lamp not more than 50ºC as I build up layers, to ensure that the underlying layers of coating are dry as well as the surface. This prevents water becoming trapped under a dry surface. Many layers of gloss thinned with water will produce a tacky surface.
For further information read the Golden Artists' Colours Technical notes on Drying Sheet.

11. GOLDEN PAINTS (picture)

There are three broad types of Golden Paints stocked at Addington Supplies in well over 100 colours. There are three different carriers hence the 3 different ranges. They are known as the airbrush range, the fluid range and the heavy body range. The colours are the same in all three ranges, for example Hansa yellow medium, [basic yellow] is available in airbrush, fluid and heavy body paints. Not all colours are available in all 3 types because some pigments are not easily added to the thinner carrier. So it follows that the heavy body range has 105 colours the fluid range has 58 colours and 24 in the airbrush range. They are all mix and match so I might add a touch of fluid to a mix made for my airbrush and I regularly thin the fluid colour mixes with my airbrush colours.
A fourth range called OPEN COLOURS
has recently been introduced. They remain open, i.e. they take longer to dry. These are currently only available by special order.
As Conservators, we often require individual products for a particular job. I am happy to order anything from the Golden range that I do not have in stock.

*Set of 10 x 30 ml/1 oz Airbrush Opaque Colours
These are my preferred choice for airbrushing. Mix with the glazes to ensure that the colour sticks to the pot. Very powerful colours, a little goes a long way. The packaging is the same as the transparent range pictured below.

£45.00
(RRP £49.95)

Set of 10 x 30 ml/1 oz Airbrush Colours available in opaque or transparent

Fluid and Heavy Body (colour charts) (Golden website heavy body; Golden website fluid)

The fluid and the heavy body ranges are priced both by size and series number. Series numbers are found next to the colour on the colour charts. It is well worth checking out the savings that can be made buying larger sizes of paint if you use a lot. I have built up stocks of the 60 ml tubes but you may have to wait while I order larger sizes or unusual colours. So I give a 20% discount on all the heavy body paints even those that I have in stock.

I stock 119ml fluid in Titanium white series 1, Zinc white 1 fluid, Titan buff 1, Yellow ochre 1 , Yellow Oxide 1, Raw umber 1, Raw sienna 1, Burnt Sienna 1, Burnt Umber Light 1, Carbon Black 1, Ultramarine blue 2 .
