is it me or anyone else not have much luck with this? i got some screens today thinking i would try it again after seeing the card in papercraft magazine.....do you leave the screen on the paper until its all dry? my first try looks like well ********....second one im gonna leave on all night to dry.....im just not feeling it and wishing now maybe id got some bazzil stitching cards....
I love glimmer mist just don't get too close to what ur spraying and it will work so much better. It works great on chipboard thats not been painted too,and on grudgeboard,I just did a lo using it and its awesome!
Another option is trying a product that I have been using for years. It is called Ritzy Ditzy Glitz. It never ever clogs on me. I like the Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels, but I don't like the dripping and blotches.
I cannot post the link here, but you can google it and find it. Or just google apapergarden. I love this stuff and have never had the drippy globby problem I got from Tattered Angels. I will not buy TA again.
I really like mine. Not holding it to close works best. I have noticed some of the splatting, but it hasn't been bad enough to call my project messed up. I would let the screen dry more though. That worked for me. I have probably over 10 colors now. So I am a fan!!!
I love Glimmer Mist. There's also a product out there called Memories Mist as well. I have about 8 bottles of Glimmer Mist and use it quite a lot.
I put paper on the floor first. Then I put what I want to spray on the paper, stand up, shake the mist really well until it turns the color it's supposed to, and spray back and forth in a continuous motion. No splotting. No nothing.
I get splots (that's what I call them) when I want them. It took me about 3 tries before I got a system that worked for me. No dripping or anything.
well just caught a cha video on you tube and the lady in the video actually there was video playing in the video..make sense? was dabbing it on the screens.lightbulb.....so i grab some cotton balls....and sprayed some on a plate....it worked ok but cotton balls sure absorb it quickly...so i think im gonna get some dabbers....but this time it was looking like a tree....
I was'nt overly impressed with the glimmer mist for the same reason. I got some when the "hype" hit and just was never satisfied with it. I may have to try it on chipboard, hmmm...
Thanks for the tips!
I have played with a few bottles of the stuff, but my first result was not so good. I did try the standing it up idea next and had much better results as far as the blotching went, but it is still pretty messy. I haven't tried it with a mask yet though.
Hi, I just took a class that used Glimmer mists and their screens. We sprayed with the project flat on a table and about 6 inches away going from left to right. Then we blotted the project leaving the screen on with paper towel. After blotting picked up the screen and it was all fine. HTH.
