Painting with Shimmerz

Shimmerz Paints will create the most shimmery, glowing, watercolor effect when used on a Prima Paintable. I love the amazing, translucent quality here!!

I started by painting the swirl with Jilted Jade And Sunny Shimmerz, blending the colors together.

Then misted over the painting with Cotton Candy Spritz. While it was still damp, I opened the bottle of Sea Foam Spritz and painted the edges with a brush, like a watercolor wash.

As a finishing touch I painted the butterflies and flower centers with Bubble Gum and Sugar Plum Shimmerz.

A shot to show some of the dimension I put into this piece.

My daughter paid me the highest compliment when she saw this is hanging in her room, at her request.

Hope you have a Shimmery day!
