Make your own Twinklings!

This is very easy! All you need is PearlEx powder, Gum Arabicum in powder form and water.

Measure 1 part Gum Arabicum to 4 parts PearlEx, mix the powders.

Add water to a creamy consistency, use a palette knife to mix well.

Store in a plastic palette, the “Twinklings” are ready to be used as soon as they have dried. Use them as watercolor paint.

I have bought my PearlEx from http://www.polymerclayexpress.com, very friendly people and incredibly fast service, they take credit cards and gladly ships to Europe!

What you need is: a spray bottle (I found mine at Dollar Store – make-up-department), decoupage lacquer or PVA glue, PearlEx and water.

Add one knife-point of PearlEx powder, put on the lid and shake well.

Ready to spray!
