Cool what to use to make reindeer's nose shine red?

I'm eagerly awaiting my Holiday Lineup set to arrive and I'm planning my holiday cards. Looking that the stamp with the reindeer my first thought was to use my Copic Spica's for the red nose but the glitter is to subtle. I want huge shine! My only other thought was glitter but I was hoping for something smoother looking, if that makes sense. Any suggestions??????

Default How about...

Stickles? There's a "Christmas Red" in their color lineup.

HTH!!

What about a dot of diamond glaze on top of the red color? Would that work?

Put a drop of crystal effects on his nose after you color, but....make sure you set it aside to dry thoroughly! I speak from experience.

The Christmas red Stickles would be my suggestion too.

Color over the red with a Versamarker and clear emboss.

Same as above only use Crystal Effects or other dimensional (liquid) adhesive. Crystal Lacquer also comes in colors to save a step.

Look for small page pebbles or the little mini clear "skittles."

Mini pom-poms, but that's stretching a bit, lol, and there's no shine...

Another cup of coffee might generate more ideas, lol....

I have used crystal effects over stickles and you get the glitz you're looking for plus a layer of shine. Wait for the stickles to dry and then add the CE over it.

Christmas Red Stickles
a red adhesive crystal (my fave idea - Hero Arts has some)
a red Glaze pen (looks like embossing)
a drop of Diamond galze (Crystal Effects, what have you)

I'd use a Spica red glitter pen, Sakura red glaze pen, little red Rain Dots, or Crystal Clear (SU) or Crystal Lacquer (sold by Gina K Designs -member company with release party tonight )

I'd probably go for a red dew drop or similar item. That way it wouldn't crush in the mail like crystal effects or stickles would. Yes, I know when they are dry they are supposed to be pretty firm and not do that, but I have received cards with smooshed accents made with theese items.

I love using red rhinestones! They are perfectly round, so you don't have to worry about it not being quite round enough!

I have a serious problem with Rudolph -- I love him too much! I usually use a tiny red flat back crystal "bling" so he really shines.

I recently did a Reindeer card and I used Red Twinkle Stickers. They're self-adhesive, so they're easy to use.

HTH!

One step -- instead of crystal effects over the top of dried stickles -- put some crystal effects into an empty section of an empty eyelet container and then add a drop or two of ink using your ink refill bottle (amount varies depending on how much crystal effects you used) .... then stir with toothpick. Use small brush to dab onto the nose of the reindeer.

I'm going to do a reindeer for Christmas this year too. I'm working on my sample right now trying to get it perfect. I was planning on using a red metallic brad for the nose. The stickles sound like a good idea too because they are extra sparkly!

I have markeers that make things look wet when you emboss them --

Wet Looks embossing markers - by Marvy Uchida -

I have the primary set that has red in it but also has black for rubber boots or yellow for rainslickers - I got them at Michaels.

Have you ever tried liquid pearls in a bright red color?
Or my favorite trick - punch a circle the size of his nose in red cardstock. Put some liquid glass on it (from CTMH) and let it dry. It will shine brilliant red!

Didn't read all of these, so sorry if this is a repeat...but how about a rhinestone brad or a red sequin. I think the sequin would really shine and be sparkly and have some dimension.

General use such as covering a punchout eg. a flower or letters from my cricut. I also saw display of grunge board that had a leather look and I was told it was covered by diamond Glossy Accents.

Ranger Red Embossing Tinsel is awesome...very sparkly and very red. I would also recommend the Stampendous Class A'Peel stickers (the red dots).

Wouldn't it be great if there was a brad that actually lit up!!! Someday...

Side note...I was looking for a smiley for dreaming. I typed in "dream" and a bunch of pie smileys came up. They are so cute that I have to post some.

I didn't read sorry if it's a repeat suggestion:

(I'm assuming you would color the nose red with a marker, ink, prismacolor pencil and gamsol or whatever first).

Swipe the image with an embossing buddy. Take a versamark pen and color in the reindeers nose. Sprinkle detail clear embossing powder on it, tap off the excess, and apply heat with the heat gun.

Shiny!

Edit: You know, on second thought (and read)... I think I'd go with the Crystal effects method. It's a lot easier!!!

I think I would use Red "liquid applique". If you let it dry naturally and don't add heat to it then it will be really shiny and smooth.
