Hope you are doing well
Here is a beautiful project
to help brighten your day
"I'm new to Starlight paints although I'd read,
seen and heard a lot about how fantastically
shiny and awesome they were. I wasn't convinced
they would be very different to other metallic paints....
I have to admit I was very wrong.
They ARE different, in a way which is
difficult to describe, the photos do not
give a good enough impression and this
is one I would advise you to see for yourself.
Also, if you can, watch the videos available
on the Imagination Crafts website, they
explain the product better than I can.
To road test the new paints I used a blank
tissue box and gave it an Eastern inspired makeover.
First I gave my tissue box a coat of black gesso.
The mat look reminds me of blackboard which I thought
would be perfect to show off the shine of the paints
Then, I applied Starlight in Dark Orchid (purplish colour)
at the corners fading to black at the center.
With the flash, however, what you see is mainly
flashes of silver metal reflecting the light
Next, I used the Starlight in Platinum (I would describe this
one as a cross between silver and gold) with a piece of
Cut & Dry foam to ink my Honeydoo stamp.
[The palette you can see in the photo is old plastic packaging]
The stamp is very detailed, so on top of wood the impression
is not perfect but I think this give the finished
article a unique and personal touch.
Now for the side views...
and the end views...
and a zoom so you can get an idea of the shine...
Wow! This is a gorgeous project
and would make a lovely gift.......
Thank you Craftyfield love the sophisticated air
