    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Sharon asked: "I've bought a couple of products and don't remember how to use them. the first is "Shimmer paint frost white", the next is "Perfect Pearls"
    A: We have two tutorials for the Shimmer Paint. One directly for it:
    Shimmer Resist.
    And one shown with a different product, but you should be able to use the shimmer paint instead:
    Faux Mother of Pearl
    As for Perfect Pearls. You can use them for the Pearlized Buttons, Pixel Embellishments as well as Poppin' Pearls.
    You can also use them as substitute for all our Pearl-Ex tutorials. Just go to the tutorial main page and type in pearl ex into the search engine there. The difference between Pearl-Ex and Perfect pearls is that they are easier. They don't need to be sealed, so you can't skip the sealing step
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Wilma has a suggestion for the Bordered Sentiment tutorial: "You can also use sticky notes for masking paper if you don't have the other."
