How much difference do you think going from a transparent to a semi
transparent pigment would actually make, when the pigment is mixed in gum
and applied thinly? I suppose I could test this by just brushing the two
over a dark layer and seeing the effect, but if you've already done a side
by side test that'd save me some time. The reason why I ask this is because
the cad colors and nickel titanate are realllly opaque, but in thin layers
you can still see through them.
