■ Pigment ink with a touch of shimmer ■ Available in 3 colors: Champagne Mist, Frost White, and Platinum ■ Champagne Mist and Frost White are translucent—wash them over your project and you’ll get a delicate layer of shine that’s more understated than glitter ■ Platinum is opaque—it will cover your surface completely, so you’ll want to use it as an accent color instead of using it to cover your project ■ Apply it with a sponge or sponge dauber directly to a stamp or paper ■ .5 oz. each ■ Nontoxic “Shimmer paint is pigment ink, so you can do almost anything with it that you can do with ink—you can stamp with it, cover an entire section of card stock or paper with it, or apply it over a stamped image or Rub-On. It works on a variety of surfaces: paper, fabric, wood (such as our Texture Cuts wood sheets), leather, and more.”
To stamp with shimmer paint, apply a thin layer of paint to the stamp using a sponge dauber or stamping sponge and then stamp as usual (don’t overload the dauber or the paint will seep into the recessed areas of the stamp). Because Champagne Mist and Frost White are translucent, images you stamp with them will be very light. Images stamped with Platinum shimmer paint will be more dramatic. Shimmer paint dries quickly; you don’t need to heat set it on paper or most materials. Except….. You can use shimmer paint on natural fiber fabrics, such as cotton, wool, silk, etc., but you must heat set it to make it permanent. To heat set the paint, iron the fabric with the iron set at the appropriate temperature for the fabric. Once the paint is heat set, the shimmer paint will not wash off or smear. ***** A few more notes picked up here and there: Shimmer Paint can be used in much the same way as the Liquified Pearl-EX was that SU sold in the past. Sharon Field on her blog Created by U has posted a formula to create your own Shimmer Mist using Shimmer Paint as a base ingredient thus allowing you to create shimmer cardstock, ribbon etc. Her formula: 1.5 tsp rubbing alcohol in a mini mister bottle... dip the 'straw' of your mister into the shimmer paint, scrape on sides of mister bottle (inside.. duh).. 5 times. Replace top, shake vigorously and spray onto porous surface.. cardstock, ribbon, etc.. will not wipe off, PHENOMENAL finish... check it out on her blog www.createdbyu.blogspot.com
