I have read about color mist and glimmer mist used in scrapbooking and other paper crafts and have wanted to try it but I'm cheap and it's expensive in my opinion. That's the wonderful thing about the internet. Not only can you find all kinds of interesting things you can find ways to make supplies at home much cheaper than you would buy them for in the store. Needless to say, I found a way to make my own color mist with acrylic paints. I should have figured it out myself that it's really just watered down paint.
I don't recall where I found the directions but they said to purchase these little mini sprayers by Tim Holtz. Well cheapo me couldn't do that because I wasn't going to pay $5 for 3 dinky little spray bottles. I did however find larger, yet still mini size, spray bottles at Wal-mart for .97 cents each.
So far I have 2 bottles of home made color mist. I'll show what I tried it out on tomorrow
