Make Your Own Shimmer Mist

Found this while surfing around. Its from a lady named Beth. Thanks Beth for the great recipe.

Make Your Own Slimmer Mist.

To make the spray, get a small spray bottle.

Add to it: 1/4 teaspoon Perfect Pearls
1 ounce water
reinker - depends on how intense you want it. About 10 drops is a good place to start.
Shake well and spray on your project.

Of course, how close you are to the project when you spray will determine the amount of coverage and wetness. You do not have to measure the ingredients exactly. A popsicle stick works well too as a spoon/scoop. It is important to use Perfect Pearls and NOT Pearl-Ex. Perfect Pearls has a binding agent in it and it will “stick” to your project. Pearl-Ex will fall off your project after the water dries unless you use the alternate recipe…..

Alternate method:Get a travel size bottle of Hair Spray and add Pearl-Ex and reinker to it. Shake well and you are good to go.

Some combinations to try:

A light yellow re-inker with gold or bronze Perfect Pearls
A green re-inker with gold PP
Burgundy re-inker with gold PP

Hope this helps someone out there....

And thanks again to Beth for sharing the original post....

Thanks for this many times I would think "If only I could jazz this up with a little bit of glitter, but not much...just a touch"!!! This is perfect. I may have to get inspired to try some more ATC's and use this on all in a set. They would be maybe FAIRY cards...I am definately getting more interested in fairys...maybe I could start a swap. I will let you know if I do.
