Barrier Reef Ltd Run (511548)<br />A transparent teal.

A transparent teal.




"Barrier Reef is slightly stiff and very, very dark. It also turns really green in the flame, so don't let that surprise you - it goes back to teal when cool. Use it in thin layers to bring up the color - especially when using it as a base. Layer it thinly over a lighter opaque and then encase with clear. I had no problems with bleeding, scumming or shocking." Read more at Kandice's blog. – Kandice Seeber
