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.
I using a collection of papers called Fairy Dust and I am lightly placing a small amount on the wings of the fairies, the paper is so rich I did not want to take away from the beautiful illustrations and the subtle colors of the paper.
