How to Use:
a light, evenly misted look hold Glimmer Mist away from your project,
and spray, such as you would when applying hairspray.
2. For a thicker, raindrop application hold Glimmer Mist closer to your
project while spraying. Do not move the sprayer too much, or too fast.
3. For a pooling effect, which gives intense color, spray Glimmer Mist
very closely and directly on your project.
You can let Glimmer
Mist air dry or use a heating tool to speed up the drying process.
Please note that
while Glimmer Mist is attractive when just using one color, layering multiple
colors also adds a beautiful richness to your projects.

The sprayer dribbles:
When you spray, make sure your finger is not hanging over the front edge
of the sprayer. When the Glimmer Mist disburses it will hit your finger
and dribble back down onto the rim of the sprayer. The next time you shake
it or tip it, it will dribble out. If your finger is pulled back the Glimmer
Mist will spray out in the pattern it was intended to and as much won't
go back into the cap. When you push down on the sprayer some of it gets
into the rim of the cap. Before you shake it the next time, pop the sprayer
part off and tip out an excess.
it getting clogged - make sure you shake all the bottles of Glimmer Mist
really well before you spray it. The Glimmer part settles as the bottom
and if the bottle isn't shaken really well the sprayer will suck up too
much glimmer for the sprayer to handle.
out the sprayer - take the top part off and put canned air down by the
hole. Spray the canned air. You can also put the canned air to the outside
of the hole and spray it that way.
like the Spray Pattern:
a fine mist Push the sprayer down quickly and move it across the
surface of your project like youre applying hairspray. You want
to keep your hand moving quickly and evenly across your project. Bear
in mind the nature of the product is that it may take you several tries
to a completely even spray pattern. Practice spray before you do your
a splotchy look Push to sprayer down halfway while
aiming at your project. Dont move the sprayer too much or too fast.
Glimmer Mist is
a water-based spray that can make lightweight mediums (like tags and paper)
curl as it dries. There are a number of ways you can correct this:
heat tool on both sides of your paper
Iron your paper
After its dry, place a heavy object on it for a few minutes
Will it stain
my hands and/or clothes?
any arts and crafts project, messes happen. Glimmer Mist will come out
of your clothes in almost all circumstances. It may take a couple of washings
so make sure you check before you put it in the dryer. Glimmer Mist on
your hands comes off best with shampoo so once youre out
of the shower it should be gone! It will also come off with several washings
Will it fade
in the sun?
Glimmer Mist will fade if left in the sun. You may be able to resist fading
if you use a UV protective coating over your project.
Mist water resistant?
Mist is water based and does not use pigment dye. Therefore, it will run
if exposed to moisture. If youre planning on using Glimmer Mist
in a humid environment (bathroom décor, for example) put a protective
coating over it.
images get blurry after being sprayed:
are two ways to use Glimmer Mist with stamped images. If youre using
archival ink, you can spray Glimmer Mist on top of your stamped image
and it wont run. If you dont use archival ink, spray the Glimmer
Mist first and stamp your image when its dry
