I promised I would show another use for Iridescent Stainless Steel (Coarse) by Golden. So, here is a journal page with that paint and Giconda soft pastel pencils. The coarseness of the paint feels gritty almost like sandpaper because of that it really grabs hold of the pastels (probably any soft pastels will work). I have not used any fixative on top of the pastels and yet I cannot rub the pastel off. It works really well. Let me know if you give it a try! Here is a close up.
