Top 20 Uses for Shimmer Paint....

Something a bit different for you today...

As a team of demonstrators... we come together (via our Facebook team page) and share many a project  - or business tip - or just something that has worked for us...

But we have just started something new... and that is to share ideas for using a particular product... This can be general - such as uses of embossing folders- or specific - such as project ideas for a particular stamp set...

So when it was my turn I decided to focus on the returning Shimmer Paints... which are in the Autumn Winter catalogues... as I do think these are little pots of delight!
I quickly write down all the uses I had for them last time around... and then I was off on Google for about an hour (or maybe 2) researching... and found some more great uses... until I had 20 of them!

I did mean to produce some of my own samples for every use I had on my list... but time was really not on my side so (in some cases) I used images from the demos blogs where I had landed! But unfortunately I forgot to make a note of where I was at the time!! But if they used watermarks on their photos... then you can see where I went... thank you ladies...

So now it is time to share my research with you... of 20 Top Uses and Other Tips on using Shimmer Paints...

Just click on the 4 pictures below to download the 4 pages of the pdf file...

Though do read on for a pictorial on Item 17... using Stampin Spots to make your own shimmery ink pad... in any colour....

Coloured Shimmer Paint Ink Pad Tutorial
Mix on a Stampin Spot for more long term use. This is an experimental at this stage! My Spot has only been primed a few days…and is working fine... so I don’t know how long it will last/be usable yet!! But it will be great for class use… even if I need to re-ink everytime…

1. Pick up a Stampin Spot, Frost White Shimmer Paint and an ink refill ( I used Pool Party)
2. Add a drop of Shimmer Paint ... less is more!!
You will need to “push” the coloured ink into the felt later on… so don’t apply too much Shimmer Paint… which I did for this photo!!! As I had made my ink pad ... then realised I hadn't photoed the next 2 steps so I did it again... and oops!! It really sat on top!!!
3. Add a few drops of coloured ink 
4. Mix it up ...
5. "Push down" into the felt of the Stampin Spot...
6. Ink up stamp as desired... and stamp....
7. Gorgeous shimmery Pool Party Beautiful Blizzard snowflakes... and I can't wait to use it with the  background stamp...
Gorgeous!
