Shimmers Paint

Happy Tuesday....

A long time ago I bought stuff to make my own shimmers paint, but never did it. Well last night I thought, hey lets make some....

The only thing you need is some Metallic Folk Art Acrylic Pearl White paint and reinkers. How easy....and fun...I did try to use my alcohol inkers, but the color kinda globbed in the paint. You don't really notice it until you paint....

So here's a short short short video on how to make your own shimmers paint...Enjoy



Blog update...If you notice up the top I had two new links added. One for Video Series and the other Categories. Videos Series is where you can find all the series I've done so far and categories is coming soon. I also updated the FAQ page with frequently asked questions :) Hope you all have a great day.

  7. Wow, how cool is that?! Now I'll have to buy Folk Art paint and reinkers and little cups and prima flowers and.....did I leave anything out? Just kidding! That really sounds likes an inexpensive way to have some pretty glitter paint on hand.
