Before i started the layout i wanted to have a little play with the mica powders to decide on which direction i was going to go, so i mixed the mica powder with modelling paste, gel medium, water and i was also going to emboss with it.

When using the Mica powder with gel medium i found the colour to be very strong and also dried to a glossy almost enamel finish. Also i added water to a small spray bottle and added a small amount of the powder in the water and as you can see from the left side of my experiment sheet, the results was a lovely shimmering spray.

I decided on using the powder mixed with modelling paste for my layout, modelling paste in my opinion is one of the best to put through a stencil and doesnt dull the colour of the powder too much.

So on a craft sheet i mixed the powder with a small amount of modelling paste and folded it over and over with a palette knife, adding more powder to increase the vibrancy of the colour. Then apply through the stencil on your layout.

Its a fabulous kit to learn more about stencilling and mica powder and mixed media techniques.

Here are my close ups!
