So many of you have asked me about this--I know you are just as addicted to it as I am! For a long time I have not had an answer for you other than to say--"well, they'd be crazy not to, as it is flying off the shelves!"
The question? "Will the shimmer paints from the Mini be sticking around?"
The answer? "YES!" Here's what was announced this morning:
Due to the popularity of our shimmer paint offered in the Mini Catalog, we will continue to offer it as a catalog write-in after the Holiday Mini sales period ends. Starting January 5, 2010, you can order the following products as catalog write-ins: 116806 Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint $5.95 116854 Frost White Shimmer Paint $5.95 116807 Platinum Shimmer Paint $5.95
So hooray for that good news today. I am thrilled because I was honestly considering buying ten bottles before the Holiday Mini Catalog period ended on the 4th. I don't ever want to be without this stuff!
Official Shimmer Spray RECIPE: Find a spritzer bottle that sprays a nice "mist" and not a "stream." Not all bottles are alike...fill half full with 70% rubbing alcohol (not 99%). Add about a quarter teaspoon to a half teaspoon of shimmer paint (Champagne Gold is my preferred color by far). Shake well every time you use it. I have cut the flaps off a small cardboard box to use as my "Shimmer Box" and I put my projects in there to spritz them, so that the over-spray doesn't coat everything with a fine mist of gold.
And for those TWO of you out there who have not yet ordered this to make your own Shimmer Spray with, get your act together and call me pronto! Then you'll see what every one is talking about.
