This weekend is my Shimmer Paint Technique class. I have been having lots of fun sponging and spraying this stuff around. For our Wednesday’s WOW! #47 I thought I would share with you how to make the Shimmer Spray up. Also, I will show you one of the cards we will make in class using this spray.
MAKE YOUR SHIMMER PAINT SPRAY
Add a small amount of the Shimmer Paint in a Stampin’ Spritzer bottle. I added about 1cm, or approximately 1/2″. The more paint the more intense the spray will be. Then top up the bottle with Rubbing Alcohol. The Rubbing Alcohol can be picked up at most Chemists (or Drug Stores). You can add water instead of alcohol but it doesn’t dry as quickly. Give it a good shake to mix them together. Before you use this each time if it has sat for a while then be sure to shake it. That’s all there is to it.
TIP: When you are spraying your card check which direction the nozzle is as to where it will spray … You might like to spray inside a box or cover the table to avoid any random spraying.
The further away you hold the spritzer the finer the mist will be. Bring the Spritzer in closer and it will be more heavier.
This is the card we will be creating on the weekend. (By the way there are still spaces if you are a Wollongong local and want to join us. Check the previous post for class details).
I have used the Southern Serenade stamp set and stamped it on to Shimmery White cardstock. That gives extra sparkle but also is good for the liquid used. I stamped the images in Black Stazon and coloured them with the Watercolor Pencils. After it was finished I spritzed the card. This spray is using the Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint.
You can see the Shimmer Paints on page 38 of the Holiday catalogue or view them in store ->HERE. Scroll down the page to see each one. There are 4 colours: Vegas Gold, Bright Copper, Champagne Mist (which is a silver) and Frost White.
