Today's product focus is Shimmerz!
Shimmerz Paints has a blog that has lots of inspiration and tips!
A few things good and not so good about Shimmerz from humble me~
- lots of fun colors
- reasonably priced
- easy to use
- lots of sparkle
- there is a slight odor
- for me, these tend to dry up but if you add just a bit of water they do mix back up an work fine
- sometimes even after mixing there are "chunkier" areas of sparkle than others
Just like my other sparkly products, I always paint a bit on a piece of cardstock with the name so I have a reference of what it looks like.
To apply shimmerz, I just shake it up really well, mix it with my brush well and then apply with a small paintbrush. It can be applied alone or over most coloring mediums. It cleans up easily with water.
This is the image I was working on yesterday that I didn't like ( I love the image, just didn't like the way I colored her--but now I do like her, go figure)--I have used 4 different colors of shimmerz on her...it really does add a nice sparkle.
