I've been wanting Liquid Pearls for such a long time. I saw them on a tutorial almost a year ago and had my family back in the states in search of this exact time. As soon as I was notified that Scrapbook.com had these in stock, I bought one in every color. It's as easy to use as Stickles and just as beautiful. The shimmer from the colors give it just what you need. I'm in love with Liquid Pearls - they give your project a touch of class and elegance. I also bought the caddy to keep my bottles organized and stored upside down so there are no air bubbles when I use it. For me, if there was a 10 star option, this item would get it!
All of the Liquid Pearls paints are great, with the White Opal and Platinum Pearl being especially nice for Christmas cards. They both have a nice, pearly sheen that make cards sparkle. Liquid Pearls is easy to apply, just dab a bit on, just make sure not to smash the point because if you do, the paint won't come out. If it gets clogged (I've only had that happen once), take a small pin and put it in the tip. That generally clears it up.
This color tends to take on the color of the background. I used this over a background made from blending yellow, pink and purple Distress Oxides together and it looked just like I had used yellow, pink and purple Liquid Pearls. If you are only going to get one Liquid Pearls color, I would definitely go with this one. And then you'll probably come back to get more colors because these are so beautiful and addicting!
I purchased Liquid Pearls to accent my vintage tea cup images. I traced over the gray parts of the tea cup trim with the Liquid Pearls and it made the image look like it had real platinum trim! It really brings my fussy-cut images to life and adds wonderful dimension to all my paper projects. I just could'nt be without it in my craft room.
These are too cool! I have used them like crazy to add just a touch of pearl to something. I will say though that in this color there is just the slightest tint of a khaki color. Not much at all. I'm sure most people won't notice and I'm just being neurotic. It's not enough to make me regret the product. In fact it's one of my faves.
