Their are so many sprays and I love how they look on projects. Their expensive!! It seems to me that they are watered down acrylics? If not please do sell me on them!! I'm on the fence/:

Well, first off, there are different kinds of sprays: Ink sprays, color sprays, glimmery sprays, to name a few. They are slightly different. Some are opaque, some are not. Some are shimmery, some are not. They have different formulas. If you look at the sprays here in the store, there are more than 1000!

That said, some people do make their own types of sprays. I've made sprays with alcohol inks and sprays with paint.

Some are a version of acrylics, yes. But definitely not all. Some have glimmer, shimmer, glitter, color, or a combo of all of the above. They can be opaque or sheer.

There are definitely recipes to makes your own, if you're so inclined. I do not have the time to invest in such endeavors so I just buy them. Scrapace sometimes has bundles of Tattered Angels. Lindy's often has a 20% coupon if you get their emails or follow their blog. And sometimes you just need to pay full price to get the latest and greatest

I know exactly how you feel! But with sprays, there are SO many you will easily find that you don't need ALL of them. Lots, yes, but not all

They're not actually sprays. If you look at the Glam link, there is a video attached to it that shows the product in action. It is applied with a brush.
If you google Tattered Angels and one of the products, there are videos that pop up.

I love misting!!! I have lots of bottles! Yes, it is addicting!! I also like to make my own as well!! Misters are very inexpensive, Stampin' up misters are the best, never clog, good size.
You can make misters very easily with water or rubbing alcohol, color (reinker) and glimmer if you want (perfect pearls or Stampin' Up glimmer paint are two options). If I don't have the color I need, I make it myself!!! When I am done, I just wash out my mister, with plain water, make sure you spray the mister with plain water to get rid of any stuck in the straw part too!! Let air dry and ready for next time. Black or dark inks will stain the top of your misters but they still work the same and don't affect them in any way so a good pack of misters lasts a LONG LONG time!!!!!

This! I wish I had known that all spray inks were not created equal about 5 months ago when I first used one! I ruined a lo using adirondack walnut spray ink; it took 5 days to dry completely and totally warped my cardstock. I didn't even overload the page or use the sprayer, just sprinkled it on. That turned me off of sprays, but you guys are lighting my fire to give them another go!

Any hints on which type of sprays are quick-drying in addition to being opaque?

these are opaque I love them but you have to make sure you rinse out the nozzel affter every use or they will clog. some of mine spray the outline of a circle because well I was too laze to walk upstairs and rinse it out. lol I am okay with that...

I like using the sprays but I think they're expensive too. I do find though that they give a really different look from acrylic paint. It's more like an airbushed t shirt look to me. If I think I'm going to use a spray I look for a small bottle. I just don't use them enough to shell out for the big ones.
