Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card I made during last nights Facebook Live. Where I shared some tips and tricks about using the new Pigment Sprinkles by Stampin’ Up!. Pigment Sprinkles come in Stampin’ Up! colors and coordinates with all out products. .You get them in a set of six and they come in the following colors; Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay. If you notice those colors are your primary and secondary colors, and just with those you can make any color you need. Here’s a look at the card I made last night with the Pigment Sprinkles and the Frosted Foliage Bundle.
Basics of Pigment Sprinkles:
Pigment Sprinkles can be a fun media to play with as well as one of the most intimidating! Why you may ask; well, it’s because it’s such a freeing carefree media and very hard to control. One of the reasons it’s hard to control is the fact that it’s a powder. Unlike traditional watercolors or watercolor pencils; Pigment Sprinkles has very little control. Well, that’s what most people think anyway. But, if you know how to use them you can find it very freeing and controllable. It all depends on how you use them. You can if you take your time control where the sprinkles will go, it’s a matter of the control you have with your hand and the heaviness or lightness of your application. More sprinkles means more pigment on the paper, less sprinkles mean less pigment. You can also use a aqua painter to apply the pigment to the paper, you will see this in the video tutorial below.
Pigment Sprinkles are a dry media that you have to add water too. You do this by spritzing the watercolor paper with a little water in a Stampin’ Spritzer. This way it helps to keep most of the pigment on the paper rater than your work area. Don’t get me wrong it does still get off the paper, as you can see in the picture above and below. Once you have the pigment put down; you then can spritz it with more water to really activate the pigment. This is when you really start to see the magic happen.
As far as what surface you can use with the Pigment Sprinkles, as long as it’s a heavy paper meant for watercoloring you are fine and ready to go. We offer both watercolor paper and shimmery white cardstock as the paper of choice for watermedia. Both are able to take a lot of pigment and water, so they are the go to for this or any type of watermedia. So just a few things to keep in mind when you start using the Pigment Sprinkles.
You can use your heat tool to speed the drying time, but to me if you just let it dry naturally you achieve much better results. The air from the heat tool can move the wet pigment around a little more and if you let it dry naturally the wet pigment stays in place and can create some beautiful light and dark areas on it’s own.
