Liquid. Gold. Oh baby! Today I’m comparing two products that are just lovely gold in a jar…let’s get going on day four of the Go for the Gold class!

Liquid Gold Watercoloring

There are a number of gold watercolors out there, but I picked two to try out. The Kuretake Gold Mica is a large (60ml) jar, and the Izink Gold is a smaller bottle (15ml) with a dropper. Both are high shine – so let’s put them to the test on a card! Watch the video below – or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

The Kuretake Gold Mica is a fairly traditional gold color – lots of shine, and works well on both colored and white cardstock.

The Izink, which is a pigment ink – a cross of some sort between acrylic and watercolor properties – also has great shine, and comes in a more orangey gold color. Izink stays fully put after it dries – so makes for lovely layering of colors overtop it. I made a post with a video all about Izink HERE.Sandy Allnock Go for the Gold Izink Liquid Gold

The Zig Clean Color pens used in this video are one of the most recent “crazes” out there – and if you’d like more on them, I have a playlist HERE where you can watch lots more Clean Color videos!


On Periscope today, I shared in one video how I made the watercolored background by first painting the Mica then adding Brusho and spritzing with water. In a later broadcast, the testing of a few gold paints: Finetec watercolors, Kuretake watercolors (the set of 36 containst 2 golds), and Kuretake Mica Watercolor. Then some of the Dina Wakely birds were embossed in Stampendous gold, then sprinkled with Brusho too. If you need more info on Brusho, check out this Brusho post, and the Brusho bear post too!
