Precious Metals Paints

Hi!  I bought these new paints from Trish at www.polyclayplay.com.  There are from Germany, I think?  Anyway, these 25 ml bottles of absolutely gorgeous colors!  I think that's about 2 ounces? I can't do the conversion.  Anyway, the pictures are some of the colors.  The bronze-ish beads and the dark blah beads are 2 sides of the same necklace.  I just painted the cinnamon PMP on one half so we could all see what it looked like.  Great color!  The only problem I found with this particular color is that it has "stuff" in it.  Like little flakes of gold flake or something.  I had to keep wiping it off my brush.  It was only cinnamon that did this.  The compact was an old vintage 50's compact that has 2 mirrors inside but a really cheap cheesy metal cover.  The mirrors are a wonderful high quality mirror so I wanted to keep it.  Perfect for a purse!  I used the Coral on this metal then highlighted the woman's face and hair with Rub N Buff Bronze.  I put 2 coats of Fimo Gloss over it.

The turquoise bracelet many of you might recognize as looking suspiciously like the puce bangle of past posts.  You are right.  It has finally lost its puce-ness.  Isn't this color beautiful?  I made little dabs of pistachio on it.  I had to put 3 coats on to cover aforementioned puce.  Ick.

The fat oval beads started life as white plastic.  Don't they look wonderful as Blackberry metallic?  I coated them with Minwax as I have no idea if these paints would scratch off.  Most likely as anything that is simply a coating would.  The water based Minwax gives the beads a beautiful smooth coating and is really durable.

The next two pictures are clay beads that needed desperately to be covered up.  :)  The Pistachio ones needed 3 coats as the original beads were very very dark and the pistachio is quite light.  

And the tube beads are that gorgeous turquoise and Crimson.  The crimson is more of a red coral but it's really pretty.  I'm anxious to get my next bunch of colors.

I think Trish is the only one who sells these paints right now.  And lovely person that she is, she actually lowered her shipping for us!  How cool is THAT?!  She also carries that new Pardo clay which I haven't tried yet.

So, tell me what you think, ok?

They are very pretty ! Love the colors. But my dear friend Moe, you really can't do conversions can you ? ;) 25 ml = 0.845 US fluid ounces.
