The start of the color wheel, reds come in deep wine, burgundy, orange-red, red and more.  Red is the perfect choice for many of our favorite holidays including Valentine's Day, 4th of July and Christmas.  Red pairs well with just about any color and it is the go to accent for black and white.  One thing you might not know about Tattered Angels Mists - they will tint paper, fabric, raw wood, barn wood and other porous surfaces where the water-based paint can sink in just enough to tint the surface.  You can also apply to smooth surfaces, by using a heat gun to help it adhere a little better.  It is worth trying just about any surface to see if you get the desired results.  Glimmer Mist is not indented as a clothing stain as it will not stand up to machine washing and drying.  It is the perfect choice when looking for a product to paint and tint items for the holidays such as pinecones and other natural materials.  

You can also blend red with yellow to make orange in your own tone, the amount you add gives you the end result you want and the same with a touch of blue to make your favorite variety of purple.

Try the Tattered Angels Color wheel to design your own set of colors by starting with the primaries - red, blue and yellow.  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 info@canvascorp.com and we would be happy to send you a new sprayer.
