I've been playing around in the craft studio and created some color mist to use on backgrounds and tags and this is what I have come up with and wanted to share. Since I make soap from time to time I had mica powder on hand. When I got started in crafting I bought a few pre-made bottles of color sprays to use and that is when I thought to myself, " I can make this stuff"; cause we all know to well that some of this stuff can get quite pricey. So that is just what I did. I tried a couple of different variations and the one I'm sharing is just plain rubbing alcohol and powdered mica. The ratio of mixture is solely up to you. A little mica color goes along way. I first tried distilled water (another soaping staple), but that just beaded up on the paper to much. This has a much nicer look to it.
They come in all kinds of wonderful colors and even in shimmering tones. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you ENJOY!!
