I got this as a freebi with my order. I just ordered a bunch more in other various colors! The bottle is so pretty with a gem on the top and it is very easy to control the flow of fluid. Once dry it maintains it's shape. It is easy to make enamal dots or even to write with this product. The color was rich and fabulous too. Would recommend.
This was a freebie and a new product for me. I played with it on an embossed photo paper that I used distress ink on. As I was playing my order of operation was backwards, but the distress ink did not stick to the gloss and I was able to just wipe it with my fingertip and it showed up beautifully.
I saw Tracy's video (MercyTiara) on using the Crystal Drops for enamel dots and so I ordered two bottles to test it out, with my luck, things always look and seem easier on video in someone else's life than mine! lol!
OHMYGOSH! I made several different sizes, let them dry over night! holy cow I am truly in love! They dry round, they flatten out perfectly and they have a beautiful shine to them. I used the plastic packaging from one of my scrapbook products to test them on, they come off easy and I can use this same packaging over and over to make more, these are awesome! I sooooo am over spending lottsa mulah on manufactured enamel dots! *The Gloss White and Caribbean Blue look so beautiful together when they are all dried and ready to embellish!
I spent way too much money on enamel dots, tried to get one in every color and then went thru them like hotcakes. But NOW, I make my own with these Crystal Drops. You make them small or large, make them look like raindrops. With as much as you get in a bottle and as little as it takes, these are far more economical than buying enamel dots. The only downside is that they take a few hours to set. (Learned that the hard way.)
If you feel you have enough kinds of blue (ink, glue, glitter, etc) then stop reading. For those of us that love the 'almost teal' color here you need this in your collection. It does have the look of clear ocean water.
What a gorgeous color! Trying these Nuvo Crystal Drops for the first time and wondered how different they would be from the perfect pearls I already owned. 1. This spreads out and flattens more and really does look more like enamel dots. Perfect for card makers and sending those cards through the mail! 2. This color has a nice shiny clean finish with no pearly look like perfect pearls. I have to mention that it does NOT have a crystal look it. I'm totally happy with it though and hope to add a few more colors to my collection soon.
Bought several bottles at a Scrapbook show in June and after trying them......yep, you guessed it......I have purchased several more colors since. I love them. I make several different sizes on a plastic sheet and then when they are good and dry I transfer to a container for future use. The Crystal drops look like the Emerald dots and the Glitter drops just look beautiful.
