Most everyone loves (or at least tolerates) glimmer. In my world, the more the merrier as I’m all about things that shimmer and shine.
In the past I’ve worked with Ken Oliver’s Color Burst pigment powders and his awesome Liquid Metals. Color Burst have no shimmer, but Liquid Metals are just what the name implies; a liquid product that looks very much like molten metal.
Enter Mineral Bursts, which complement the others perfectly, and allow you to do things the others cannot. Because Mineral Bursts are water-like in consistency you’d think they can’t be watered down, but that’s not the case. Once you mix/shake the product in the jar to distribute all of the mica in the liquid you’ll be amazed at how dense the shimmer is.
In the video I demo using Mineral Bursts as a wash, which works really well and applies lots of glimmer. If you need less, just thin the product with water and apply it. Glimmer can be subtle, though it’s often not when I create using it!
Mixing Mineral Bursts with Color Bursts and Liquid Metal creates amazing patterns among the glimmer. The bonus? It’s very easy to do.
You’ll also see me combine Mineral Bursts with Alcohol Ink. That might seem like an unholy, “don’t do it” combination, but it produces some very interesting effects because of the different bases the two products are made from.
Mineral Bursts are high quality, easy to work with, and are perfect for just about any project you might have in mind.
