Default Twinkling H2O's

They are a product made by Angelwings inc and I don't think they are in the catalog. They come in individual little pots and they are a watercolor paint mixed with mica flecks that leave the most GORGEOUS shimmery watercolor look. HTH!

Default now...

i heard somewhere that you could MAKE these...I tried the recipe that was posted and it didn't work for me.
Does anyone have a recipe for these? Or should I just break down and buy them? My thoughts were though, if I could make them using SU products then I could demo them...
The recipe i had was
1 tsp lumiere
1 tsp pearl ex
Thoughts?

I'm not sure about making it, but I just bought a small set (6 pots) on my last business trip in a store in Riverside, CA. I was just walking back from parking my car on my way to dinner when I saw this great stamping/scrapping store (I really have never been to a store like this other than a couple trip to Michaels back at home). So I had to go int. The woman who owned the store had a whole shelf of the products and tons of samples to see. I have read so much about Twinkling H2Os on this site and seen some samples in the gallery (I'm pretty sure that pinefeather had a few), but had never seen it live before. Once I saw what you can do and what it looks like on paper, I had to buy it. Can't wait to try it out ~Maria

Hi Amy - Tyra Smith (Cloud9) has quite a bit of info on Pearl Ex, and in her write up she talks about making watercolor cakes with PE, liquid gum arabic and water, but she doesn't have exact measurements. She does have a lot of good suggestions for working with Pearl EX. You can check it out here:
http://netnet.net/~cloud9/tips/tips_index.html
(Just go to Pearl Ex in the Tips & Techiques Index)

I have made some of these PE Watercolor cakes myself, but found them to be not nearly as vibrant and sparkly as Twinkling H20's (I now have ALL the colors ).

However, I saved an informative e-mail from "Stampin' Safari" on another list that sounds more promising in getting the Twinkling H20 effect, which reads in part:
_________________________

From the Faux side of town...

Here is a compilation of my work with Twinkling H2Os and Faux T~H2Os.

For those of you who cannot afford them or think the Twinkling H2Os are too expensive, you can still play with delightful, shimmering color. Create your own Faux T~H2Os in every color imaginable for a fraction of the cost. Ü Here the scoop:

Watercolors~tubes, liquid, cake
Dye based re~inkers can be used in place of watercolors
Iridescent Medium by Windsor Newton (about $5)~my preference
or
Pearlize/Iridescent Medium by Liquitex (about $10/4 Oz)
or
Pearlized Medium for yet another variation of a shimmering look.

Mix a few drops of Iridescent Medium to the watercolor paint as you use it and render color as desired. Do not store any left-over Faux T~H2Os. It loses some of it's effect and becomes more like an acrylic type paint.

WoW! It's that simple. Ü

You won't be disappointed with the Twinkling H2O's.
A picture on the internet just cannot do it justice.
The shimmery effect just does not show in a digital picture.

I'm sure you'll love it!

I just bought some of these the other day and I just LOVE them.

As I was stamping by candlelight the other night I actually painted them onto my rubber stamp and then spritzed them and stamped....I didn't think it came out good but when I saw them the next day they were gorgeous....

I stamped off a couple of times and the second one was better.

i had a site bookmarked on how to make them but can't find it now but will keep my eyes open

I have a recipe that was given at the last demo meeting I attended (haven't tried it yet, just bought the Gum Arabic today):

In a small plastic container mix approx. 1/2 tsp Pearl Ex, 1/2 tsp Gum Arabic and a small splash of water. Stir until completely mixed. Allow to sit until dry. Use like watercolors.

Hope that helps

You can probably get it at michaels in the section where they have paints (oils and watercolors).

You can buy H20's directly from the manufacturer at this site

If you're shopping for Twinkling H20's, be sure to check out this website:

http://www.stampnmadness.com/

Only $14.50 for a six-pack of 10 gram containers, plus other sizes and multi-packs are available. She's great to work with and the shipping is fast.

I found some instructions that I had scribbled down. I will try them out in the next couple of weeks and see what happens.
