I finally broke down and purchased some glimmer mist. The graphite color is a nice silvery color. This stuff is so much fun to play with! I recommend covering other paper or items in the area, as the spray can cover more than you intend! A little goes a long way.
Also, spray quickly for a nice even sparkle or shimmer, or push the pump down slowly for a splattered effect. I recommend "priming" the pump by spraying on scraps or into a garbage can before using the first time, too.
Have fun! Definitely worth the purchase :)
It was my fav new product at CHA-Summer. Considering its my job to go to every booth, that's saying a lot LOL! I adore it. I bought graphite, merlot and copper. Its really fun to spray chipboard letters. It layers and layers, just let it dry in between. You can use your embossing gun to dry it faster, or just leave it out to dry. I even sprayed clothes pins (that i use to hang my kids art up). Its water based and has no smell. So much easier to use than spray paint!
I just started using the glimmer mists and I really like them. They dry much faster than I thought and they leave a great shimmer. I just used the graphite on a page I just completed and even though you can't see the full effect in the pic, trust me, in person it is fabulous. Not too much glimmer, just enough!
Great to use on "industrial" layouts. I used it to spray some gear parts and wrench that I cut from the Indie Art cricut cartridge. It gave just the right dimension and made them look like real, greasy, grimy, used tools. Awesome effect.
I said it in my other review and I'll say it again here. Watch the demo video! There are some wonderful ideas and it teaches you how to use this product. You can do a lot with it!
