Default Seeing is believing - Reverse Painting

I've learned a lot from the wise people at this site, including how color choice can affect the pen blank when doing reverse painting. What I hadn't seen was a side-to-side comparison photo. So... for all us newer guys, here's a perfect example. The blanks used are the 4-color opal pearl from Almalgam-Mutt Blanks (Pearl #11). Pic 1 is reverse painted in White, pic 2 is reverse painted in Black. Amazing difference!

Thanks Art.
A picture is worth a thousand words and two pictures are worth Four Thousand words!

I like it when people take it upon themselves to experiment with ideas and then post results that can be SEEN. It is especially helpful to see contrasting scenarios.

Grasshopper says "Wow!" Wouldn't have thought of that much difference. Thank you, honorable master.

Way cool to see it up close like that.
I worked at a car repair shop when I got out of high school (among other jobs) for several years.
The paint master taught me the difference between using different base coats before shooting the colors.
He used a silver base coat for light colors, and a gold base coat for darker colors. Then the color is applied and the difference is amazing.
