Hi,

I want to get some ink Spray/mists.

I have used Glimmer Mist in the past. What are your favorite sprays.

TIA,
katie

I love glimmer mists, but I've also recently discovered the smooch mist and that is really fabulous also!

Mr. Huey is my fav, I think it thicker than the others more like a paint.

My favorite spray's are homemade using Mini Misters, pearl-ex, and TH re-inker. I can make it as light/dark and shimmery/ not as I want.

I'm a total glimmer mist girl. I love that stuff!

Smooch is also nice but the bottles are so small. I know that glimmer mist is pricy but I have had some bottles for well over two years now and they are doing great.

Another vote for GM! I also like Smooch because it gives a different effect, but it's pretty expensive for the small tube of the mist you get. Even with GM being almost $7/bottle, there are a couple I've had since August of last year and use regularly and have yet to run out of. I also have recently discovered Moon Shadow Mists through the kit club I belong to...they're fabulous!!

My favorite is smooch spritz because it has a finer mist. I think it is worth the extra $$!

Glimmer Mist is the only kind I have used. I actually got some for Christmas and that was my first go round with it! I'm really liking it!

I have 2 bottles of Perfect Pearls Mist. The Pearl is really pretty and sprays nice but the Copper it too pinky and doesn't spray as nice.

Let's see here now...

Glimmer Mist is my first mist love, a great variety of colors and the bottles are nice and big.

Smooch Spritz is fabulous for strong color, very opaque and metallic, my go-to mist for chipboard and grungeboard.

Shimmerz Spritz are light colors, the Vibez have a cool chalky-finish that I really like, great for dying fabrics.

Moon Shadow mists are awesome! Walnut bases, so they all spray brown, then another color emerges as it dries, I love these!

Starburst Sprays (by the same co as above) are my new favorite! They are BRIGHT...two toned and FABULOUS!!

The Lindy's Stamp Gang mists come in a bottle with just the powder, you add hot water and done!

They all have their place in my scraproom! LOL

I am not really a fan of the Perfect Pearl mist. I have one, it's labelled "blue smoke", but when I spray it, it's not blue at all, just silver.

They are made by Lindy's Stamp Gang. You can order from them directly. I have quite a few on my new list! I loce how they are shipped, and they aren't near as pricey as GM or Smooch.

I also like that they come with just the powder then you have to add water. It made me feel like a crafty mad scientist! LOL

Well, I have my faves for sure. YES< there are a TON of colors.

Moon Shadow: Bucket O Blood Red, Treasure Island Aqua, Bucaneer Bay Blue and Gossamer Gold.

Starburst: Wild Honeysuckle Coral and Tibetan Poppy Teal. (I am getting more of these soon, about 6...I will report on those.)

Well, I'm a purple freak, so I really like the Pegleg Pete's Purple. It sprays on brown, but when the light catches it, it's purple! Really cool! I also like the Gossamer Gold, it looks really good on vintage-type layouts. I haven't actually used any of the other colors yet, but I'm sure Manda has!

I only have 12 Moon Shadow Mists so far, but I really like all of them! I like Pegleg Pete's Purple and well, I have Voracious Violet, but I haven't used it as much.

I went to Archivers last night. I wanted to get the Dazzling Diamonds GM but they were out. But I did get some bottles of Perfect Pearls Mist and I LOVE them!!

I have loads of Glimmer Mists, a few Perfect Pearls Mists, quite a few Shimmerz, and a couple from Lindy's. I've never met a mist I didn't like.

They add a touch of "glimmer", to make things shiny & sparkly.

I have only recently started to use their products with any frequency. I haven't tried their ink pots or stains yet. I want to though! but I have to keep my spending in some kind of check.

I have just recently put myself on a budget as well since I have been spending WAY TOO MUCH on supplies. I knew I was in trouble when I was planning on buying some new shoes for work and I started to think about how much scrappy stuff I could get for the price of the shoes!!

I just recently got a trial pack and some micah powder from Lindy's. I really haven't tried many sprays because they seem to be so expensive. (I have made some with the reinkers and perfect pearls.) I just thought the sprays and stains at Lindy's seemed pretty affordable since you can get them in packs. I haven't heard too much about the brand tho' so I was curious about what everyone thought. (FYI - the micahs are beautiful!!)

I started with Tattered Angels but didn't like how it warped the paper. I like Maya Mist and Studio Calico's mists much better for that. They don't shimmer, but I'm OK with that.
