Irridescent Medium

Yesterday we went to the lovely Truro Arts shop where I made a few wee purchases... I found this lovely stuff called Irridescent Medium. It is for use with acrylics and you can either mix it with acrylics or you can paint over things with it. It adds a bit if texture but more importantly it gives a lovely sheen... I have only played with painting over things so far..

This was fairy paper left over from the Hello Kitty card. I had left over purple gesso which I used up. The irridescent medium was used to highlight the fairies so they gently shimmer. I then added the text (yes I know it is wonky!) int hree different coloured purple pens.

This card is going to be postcrossed for someone wanting art cards and encouraging people to produce them themselves... I drew the maze in a silver pen and then used a limited selection of water colour pens. I then slapped lots of rridescent medium over the top.


  1. oooooooh!! Shimmery, sparkly, JOY!

    Love it!

  2. I know - I love anything glittery, shimmery or sparkly *grin*
