There are several Stickles out there that look white online, so I hope to help others discern the differences. This is a sparkly almost-clear, some people think it is clear but to me, this has definite, warm gold flecks shining forth. Which is fantastic and beautiful! But just want you to know how this color comes across for me, I tend to turn to other “white” Stickles when sticking to a cooler palette (like Crystal, which has predominantly blue/green reflections, or Icicle, which also has a lot of gold in it but many other colors too… Stardust is the next “white” one on my wishlist!). But do NOT get me wrong, there are times when this sparkly subtley goldish almost-clear is just what my project needs so woohoo Ranger for offering so many lovely variations on what looks merely “white” online!
I recently took the plunge and purchased my first stickles product and this was it! I wanted something that was versatile when it came to colour schemes and didn't want to buy millions of stickles without trying them myself first! So i choose 'diamond' as it seemed to be an almost clear coloured stickle. I was right, it's colourless with crystal sparkly glitter so it can be used on so many colour schemes. It dries fast and looks perfect on coloured papers too thanks to it being clear it soaks up the colour thats showing underneath it! The small nozzle is great too as it means you can be really precise about where you want it! I will deffinately be investing in more stickles!!
These "clear" Stickles are so difficult to tell apart! I finally just bought a bunch so I can review them for everyone. I tested on 5 different blacks ranging from acrylic paint to glossy magazine paper. Your results may vary.
Diamond is the hottest Stickles I tested. The red is prominent. The other colors are red/gold, gold, and the rare speck of green. Because of this temperature Diamond seems to have the most pop and excitement. That said, the red not the primary red you would expect, the glitter makes sure it is not flat, and the gold pushes the red a tiny-tiny bit into orange. Much like the flame in a fireplace, Diamond dances between these hot colors.
If you want the most bling for your buck, Diamond would be a good choice. But delicate sparkle this is not.
I have tried many glitter glues over time and found them all to be EXTREMELY messy. This one though has them all beat hands down. Meet Ranger ind. "Stickles". They come in an amazing range of colors and are so easy to apply and use. The applicator is a very fine tip and you can place this in extremely thin lines or dots and you do not have to worry about it running or spreading out across your project it stays where you put it! The drying time is about 30 minute to touch, but I leave my projects out about 1 1/2 hours and they are completely dry to the touch. DO NOT HEAT DRY THIS!!! I have found it "will not" speed up dyring time and turns the product Tacky. So the next time you want to bling it up just remember "Sitckles".
I am so in love with these Stickles products! They dry incredibly fast, just like everyone says and the glitter is very fine yet sparkly. The way the nozzle is shaped is so helpful to get into small spaces and to outline & accent.
I have used this diamond color on a lot of projects I've just made recently and I can say it is such a versatile "prismy" like color. You can highlight any color on your project you want to bring out yet its not a dull "clear" either.
Watch out because Stickles are very addictive, once you use them on one project you want to use them on everything you make! You can't beat the price either here on Scrapbook.com
