Sparkly Thursday's #7- Shimmerz

Only one more week of Sparkly Thursday's left! I hope you have enjoyed these as much as I have--it's been fun to get sparkly!
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~

The good~
  • lots of fun colors
  • reasonably priced
  • easy to use
  • lots of sparkle
The not so good~
  • 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
I really do like shimmerz but tend to grab my Inspirations Paint more often now. But like any sparkle product there are times that I just want shimmerz! It's all in your preference.

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 really does add a nice sparkle.

Be sure to come back next week for my last Sparkly Thursday on Stickles!

Danni I have enjoyed your take on the different ways to get the sparkle on a project!
I love the shimmerz!But they do dry out too fast!

Kristie said...

Oh yay, glad to know I can add water to them. I have a gold one that totally dried up and would love to use it again.
