Inka Gold paint that Sweet Stamps has added to the store! It is very shimmery, so a bit challenging to get a good picture.....
-Sweet Stamps carries two sizes- 12.5 gms (perfect to 'try it out') and 50 gm jars.
-Inka Gold is an Opaque metallic paint that contains beeswax.
-It is very shimmery and quick drying- the colors are brilliant.
-Inka Gold is water soluble- so cleans up with water and is non-toxic.
-Apply 'as is' using your fingers, use a sponge or dry cut for an intense color on your project. Or, try adding a little water to it and paint it on for a more subtle color.
-You can combine the colors on a craft mat to make even more colors too!
-Inka Gold works on all non-porous surfaces- so it is great on paper, chipboard, wood, ceramic, canvas....... You can add it to metal too.
-When you open the jars- the top of the smaller paints have a removable (snap out) plastic top- you want to keep it in the jar when not in use so the paints do not dry out. The larger jars have a liner you peel off- then make sure when you close the jars they are tightly closed so the paints do not loose moisture.(You can refresh them if they dry out with water or baby oil from what I have read).
-You can stamp over the surface of Viva Decor- looks like you need to use Stazon Ink though.
- I used my fingers and applied the Inka Gold for the background. After applying the ink, I buffed it with a paper towel- that makes it shine! After running the background through the Big Shot using the Swirls embossing folder, I highlighted the embossing with Gold colored Inka Gold.
- For the butterfly, I first put a small dot of Inka Gold in Yellow on the craft sheet, then mixed it with water to make it liquid and painted it on. Next, I took a small amount of Inka Gold in Red and mixed it with the yellow (that I had already made) to make an orange color- as you can see in the picture.
-I highlighted the outer edge of the back layer, the die frame and the edge of the sentiment panel with Gold Inka Gold paint using my finger. (It wiped right off my fingers with a baby wipe).
- I stamped the sentiment and butterflies in Memento Black Tuxedo ink. The butterfly is fussy cut- for the bottom layer, I left ~ 1/8" of white, the top layer is cut to the edge.On the top layer, I only glued down the center part of the butterfly.
