Ken Oliver Color Burst Product Review and Mixed Media Tag

Hi all
I have a product review using the Ken Oliver Color Burst Powders which i think is something my mixed media friends would like. I wanted to experiment with them so i have created a mixed media tag using a mixture of my stash. You can get them from That's Crafty if you are based in the UK and Europe. Here is the link http://www.thatscrafty.co.uk/ .



The powders come in a bottle with a fine tip. This allows more control over where the powder is sprinkled and how much. The best thing about it is that you get to keep your fingers ink free. I created this background by applying water around one side of the tag and tapping the powder on to it. The powder stars to burst out which is a nice effect on it's own. I applied more water to diffuse the powder more and create this watercolor effect.


You can used the powders to create an ink which can be applied to a rubber stamp with a brush. It creates this stained effect which once dry can have further layers to it. I also used the powders to dye the flowers by dipping them into the ink mixture but you could get a patchy effect by wetting the flowers and sprinkling the powders over them.



The Liquid Metals are another favorite as they are like a concentrated paint that covers really well. I used them to paint the MDF Flowers.
