Today I decided to use a sample jar of Golden Light Modeling Paste that I had hanging around. This is done on a piece of illustration board, 7" x 12." I put a light coating of modeling paste on the board with a putty knife and then drew on it with the rounded end of a paint brush handle. It was painted with watercolors and then I dry-brushed Golden gold fluid acrylic over the surface. The light modeling paste is very different from the extra-heavy gel - it is not as hard to work with and does not dry to a real hard surface. It seems to be more fibrous - much like a refined paper mache product. It takes the watercolor very well.
