I was thinking it would be fun to try a bit of mixed media experimenting. I stumbled across these powders on this site and thought that it would be nice way to start since they are already mixed. But when they arrived, I was very unimpressed. The powder is interesting and blends as it is shown on the videos. They are quite pretty and shimmery indeed and a small bit does indeed seem to go a long way. Those are the pros.
Once dried though, the powder doesn't really stick to the paper and can be easily rubbed off... including the pretty shimmery part. I don't know... maybe there is a good way to seal it on that I have not discovered yet. Also, unfortunately, the color mix on the Bratwurst Brown is NOT appealing at all. While the brown/copper base is pretty (complete with the lovely shimmer), there are three other garish colors (hot pink, bright yellow and a sort of psychedelic blue color) thrown into the mix as well. It looks like somebody put cupcake sprinkles in the bottle. Trust me, it doesn't look a thing like the product photo. I was hoping for a brown coloring that would compliment outdoorsy sort of scenes, but I truly have no idea what I could use this for. In addition to all that, the bottles come unsealed (some of the fine powder escapes in route) and they are only about half to three quarters full in the first place. Also, they are not nearly as large (white bottles) as the YouTube videos depict them to be. They also do not include any markings as to their true weight on the labeling.
I will not fault Scrapbook.com though since they did show the little black bottles that you actually receive in their featured video. Further, they wisely packaged them in a resealable zipper baggie so that the rest of my order wasn't covered with powder. I was appreciative of that from them.
All that being said, I would not order these again.... but especially not this awful color.
