Default How to use Twinkling H2O's

Some one has given me a set of 8 colors of Twinkling H2O's and I am looking for ways to use them. Any help would be greatly apreciated. Thanks, Julie in Georgia

They work best with solid image stamps. I have apple and pear stamps (can't remember by whom) and you can do some awsome effects with blending colors on the solid stamps.

Spritz the open jars and wait a few minutes for the paint to get wet enough to work onto the brush. Paint your stamp with whatever colors you choose. Then LIGHTLY spritz the stamp before stamping. It takes a while to get used to the consistency of the paint.

You can also paint your image after stamping it. Just dip your H2OBrush in the jar and swirl it around to get some onto your brush.

I try both these. I have tried using them on different papers to play and see what they look like, but that's about it so far. Everyone has raved about them that I had to check them out. Julie

I am in love with my Twinkling H2O's. I find I get the best "visual" results when I have black embossed the image, then paint with the twinlkers using a blender pen. It really looks great after everything has dried and you really get to see the "sparkle" of the twinkling h2o's.

Go to www.luminarteinc.com. I just got all three of the 24-color sets... WOW! They are spectacular!

I got mine from www.stampnmadness.com There is a good selection of combinations and Robbin gives great service!

Hint - you really only need the smaller pots (I think it's 5 gram) since these last forever!

Default Twinkling H2O's

They are found at most stamping stores these days too. I noticed that they are so popular around here that they are hard to find since they are on backorder for many stores. Glad I bought mine when I did...all the colors they make! I especially love embossing then using my Aqua painter or Blender Pen to apply color. Or take a watercolor brush or Aqua Painter and paint directly onto the stamp then stamp a beautiful background or whatever.
Have fun with them! There are tons more options with the colors than with Pearl Ex.

Default Twinkling H20's

I saw a person on Ebay selling a set of 12 mini's for $16.99 ($2 for first class mail and $3.85 for priority shipping). She is selling four different color assortments.

Default H2O's

These paints are wonderful. I use mine in the same way as I would use watercolors.
They also have some irridesant colors that give the image a 'washed' apperance.
Stipple Butterfly and In full Bloom are two of my favorite sets to use H2O's with.
Also, the small 5 gram jars will last forever.

My sister and I just went to a stamp show in Long Island over the weekend and they demonstrated the Twinkling H2O's. LOVE THEM!!! We also took a class on stamping tumbled tiles and we used the T-H2O's. Boy are they spectacular! We bought one of the 24 color sets. We stood there for about 5 minutes going over EACH color to make sure we had a good variety. Of course you KNOW we are going to be buying the other 2 24 color sets very soon. Hmmm....I wonder if my sister can get in touch with Santa...

If you use the tsinkling h2o's on tumbled tiles, do you have to seal them?

Oooh - I love my Twinkling H2O's. I only have 12 colors (so far ), but my SIL has a bunch and I played with hers. We also saw then demo'd at a stamp convention in Carson CA (next one is this weekend BTW). Another cool thing the lady did was mix oyster or one of the white irridescent colors with any of the other colrs to make a more pastel version of the color.

I never thought of using them on tiles. I'd really like to hear more about that!!! Please share. Did you use Satz-on ink first? Did you seal? I need details!

Yes, Please more details on the tiles and H2O's. I'm making tiles for a craft fair as we speak.

Also, if I am only using Staz-on and Sharpies, do I need to seal?

I saw a previous post that said she sold 4 tiles for $15 - does that sound about right to everyone?

Thanks!

Karen
