My journey started with a humming bird that had beautiful feathers that shimmered. I just couldn't find the right medium to capture his shimmering color. I then sought out metallic, shimmery materials that would make him shine. Many shimmery watercolors are expensive and limited in variety, and they didn't capture the spirit of a hummingbird I had a thought to create my own watercolor using shimmering mica and discovered the perfect medium to create the shimmer of a hummingbird. I hope you will discover the perfect shimmer for your projects. These are great for mixed media, scrapbooks, cards, calligraphy, and any project that needs a special shimmer.
