Day 2 Product Introduction - Colour Shimmer Sprays

Welcome to Day 2 of our product introduction!  

Today we are introducing to you our Colour Shimmer Sprays.  Our Colour Shimmer Sprays are a water based iridescent shimmer spray with no base dye colour.  This range was created to be used on DARK SURFACES, however it can be used an light surfaces too depending on the look you are trying to create.


Colour Range
There are 21 colours available in the Colour Shimmer Sprays - same colour range as our Colour Paste and Colour Embossing Powder - allowing you to use different mediums that match.

Directions
Mix well before use, however DO NOT shake the bottle up and down as you may cause the spray nozzle to block.  Swirl the bottle in circles side to side to mix up the contents.  Spray directly onto porous surfaces for coverage.  Recommended to seal your projects with sealer spray to protect your project.  The Colour Shimmer Spray is water based, acid free, non-toxic and non flammable.  

Tips
If your spray nozzle becomes blocked - unscrew the nozzle from the bottle and remove the stem from the spray nozzle.  Run hot water through the spray nozzle as you will find the nozzle becomes blocked due to fragments of mica powder being lodged in the stem of the nozzle.  Reattach the stem to the nozzle, if there is still a blockage, attach the nozzle to a bottle base containing hot water and spray hot water  through it.  Taking these steps generally unblocks any blockages, but is not guaranteed. 

Storage
Store your Colour Shimmer Sprays in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight.  

Techniques
1. Spray the Shimmer Spray onto a dark surface as this allow the shimmer to POP and looks amazing.



2. Even thought the Colour Shimmer Spray was created for dark surfaces, it is still vey effective on light surfaces.  It really depends on the look you are trying to create.  Spray or paint onto light surfaces.


3. Spray or paint onto surfaces ie watercolour paper; carstock (with no preparation); cardstock that has been prepared with a gesso base.

4. Spray onto your stamp block and stamp for a random background look.

5. Use the Colour Shimmer Spray to colour titles, embellishments and flowers, this can be applied by spraying or by using a paint brush to paint your surface.


What you can do with our Colour Shimmer Spray is endless. We have a design team that create projects using our products. For further techniques and ideas, please follow our blog.

The Colour Shimmer Sprays are available for purchase from your local stockist or via online website.

We are looking forward to sharing our 3rd product with you tomorrow - Colour Embossing Powder.
