Janine discovered how much fun Luminarte Polished Pigments are while creating this layout. She tried different ways of applying them, mixing them and layering them. She discovered that the depth and intensity of the colour achieved could be varied by how much of the mixative solution you mixed with the pigments.
A lot of solution meant a lighter colour could be achieved, but still retaining the lovely iridescence of the pigments. She also discovered they are very easy to mix together to create new colours. Another tip when using these pigments is to make up enough when mixing colours to paint all the items you want a certain colour and a little bit of pigment goes a long way.
Suz used a combination of Luminarte’s Perfect Pearls and the water-based Twinkling H2O’s on her layout. She backed a delicate Twiddleybitz Nero Butterfly with photo paper and blended the H2O’s to colour in its wings, but found the water base wasn’t going to work as beautifully on the Pink Paislee Artisan Element. So for that she blended Perfect Pearls with the Acrylic Medium which gave a that beautiful saturated finish as well as the gorgeous gleam that the Luminarte paints are so well known for.
Gayle Martin has created this stunningly rich LO using Luminarte Polished Pigments to colour the cardboard and the tag. The depth of colour and the shimmer on the cardboard add to the charm of the layout. Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful LO with us Gayle.
In this fabulously arty page Gudrun Loennecken has used the polished pigments as a spritz, simply by mixing with water and spraying through a spritz bottle. The more pigments you add the deeper the colour of the spritz.
