Wow – I love Cosmic Shimmer products.
I created this Desk Set for a colour challenge set by John Bloodworth of ‘Gentleman Crafter’ blog fame.
The three colours John challenged people to use were:
Now, it may be just me – but these colours immediately reminded me of the Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Polishes colours Mediterranean Blue, Ocean Teal and Citrus Green.
I had considered trying to do something clever with blending them into one another, but I decided I wanted to produce something which showed off the beauty of these colours in their pure, unadulterated form.
To achieve this, a strong dark background was needed to provide the perfect foil for the ‘tropical’ strength of these ‘zingy’ colours.
All my black options would have given a matt finish which didn’t fit in with the picture I had in my head; then I came across a bottle of Cosmic Shimmer – Shimmer paint in Graphite …… perfect!
