Shimmer Opaque is a rich, vibrant, bold, strong, opaque pearlescent gel medium. It is based on the powerful patterns and colors of Italian textile manufacturer, Marino Fortuny.
Shimmer Opaque can be painted, stenciled, rubbed, sponged, fauxed or troweled on clothing, fabric, wood, walls, canvas, gourds, any surface. Very easy to use, Shimmer Opaque gives a shimmer and vibrancy to any canvas, clothing, or work of art.
The White Shimmer Opaque can have any of the colors of Colorantadded to it to give endless possibilities of color.
Shimmer Opaque can be applied to clothing by brushing or stenciling it on. It will not wash off. Add a little glitter over the paint to give it more pizzazz. When sponged lightly on gourds it can give a faux Raku look. Paint or sponge on the bottoms of plates so the vibrancy shows through and the plate is totally food safe.
