If you are looking for tones that add a bit of brilliance choose a sheer white or clear mist with your favorite mica, if you are looking for more coverage in white - choose High Impact Paint and cover a lot or a little depending on the look you are going for.

If you want to lighten any shade, add white or cover with a white and soften up your art.  If you want to have pure color and paint on any surface black High Impact is the choice.

Pair up black and with any accent color, they all work.


Try the Tattered Angels Color wheel to design your own set of colors by starting with the primaries - red, blue and yellow and secondary colors - green, purple and orange.  This is a great tool for teachers to use in the classroom with kids of all ages.

Glimmer Mist is a liquid watercolor paint and can be used a number of ways:

1. shake and mist with the pump 

2. shake and pour into a small cup or paint palette and apply with you favorite brush (the mica and colors of the paint show up in beautiful ways)

3. remove the mister and drop from the tube onto your project for a deeper, mixed media appeal.

4. ombre by misting two colors together and letting them meet in the middle

For best results shake side to side and never up and down to keep all the mica in the bottle and not in the mister, if that does happen, wash the mister with hot water to remove any clogged mica.  If that does not work, email us at and we would be happy to send you a new sprayer.
