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 Colorant added 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. 

The Gold Shimmer Opaque may be used to create a faux gold leaf.  Brush on the Gold Shimmer, let dry and then go over it with any Colorant to achieve the beautiful variegated gold leaf look.

We suggest that Shimmer Opaque be protected with one of our high quality varnishes for the best durability.

If more working time is desired, add a little of Generation Green Extender for slower drying.
Safe and Easy To Use:
  • Water based
  • Cleans up with soap and water

Glaze is defined as a translucent medium applied to a surface to give a texture, color and depth to it. It is
fun and exciting to use as you can create fabulous pieces of art by “layering” the glazes over each other. 

Generation Green Shimmer Translucent achieves a sophisticated shimmer of metallic by applying it to
walls, furniture, woodwork, wood, metal and craft projects.  Use also on gourds and can vases.  

Shimmer Transparent  may be used to enhance projects and surfaces with ease.  Versatile and easy to
use for an Old World look or a modern metallic Deco effect.  Use one color or several colors for an
interesting shimmer effect.  Make all the surface “pop” or just highlight by enhancing edges or raised parts
or deep crevices.  For a stronger look Generation Green Colorants can be added to the Shimmer
Translucent .

This clear, thick, workable glaze can be used on any surface.  It adds texture to and keeps texture on the
surface, even after drying. Shimmer Translucent can be used as a clear glaze over an existing basecoat
or you may add paint or colorant to make your own color using Generation Green Colorants.  Great on
vertical surfaces as it does not run or sag.  Use with sponges, plastic bags, brushes, rags, paper, tissue paper, stencils, kitchen utensils for different effects.  Generation Green Shimmer Translucent holds stamping imprints.  If texture is not desired, simply soften with a soft cloth.

When desired effect is achieved, let dry and protect with one of Generation Green Varnishes.

Available in 2 oz.
12 vibrant colors.
Directions for Use:

Use brush, bristle brush, foam brush, pallet knife, sponge to apply Shimmer Opaque to surface.  May mix colors together for a marbled look.  When applying to glass, work on underside so Shimmer Opaque can show through the glass.  This way, if serving food, painted surface will be protected.
