Some advice needed on Cosmic Shimmer Mist.

Hi, no cards to post today, well I have some made but its way too dark to get a decent photo. Anyway, I was hoping one of you lovely crafters can help me out with some tips on using cosmic shimmer mist. I couldn't wait to get my hands on a bottle and when I eventually did I was so disappointed with the results, I know I am doing something wrong but I've searched the net to see if I can get any idea on how to use them but I'm only getting the basic instructions that I had already worked out for myself, spray onto project, worked that one out quite quickly lol. So, I've sprayed onto porous card, it soaks in not leaving a very nice effect and then the paper goes soggy and wrinkly, so tried non porous card, it did exactly what I thought it would....runs off the card lol. Arghhhhh so now I've bits of soggy card everywhere and my kitchen is silver. Helppppp

Hi Sweetie have never used it on paper, but I use it on flowers, put whatever you want to colour in a cardboard box(otherwise the spray goes everywhere, I always lay what I am going to spray on a piece of kitchen towel), hold the spray wuite high above the object and spray in short bursts, thats how I do it, hope it helps

Hi Donna,can't help you there,but I make my own using perfect pearls.I add some of the powder to a mini spritzer bottle and add water.It's just as effective.
