About two months ago I reviewed the Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. It really was my first real workout with Glimmer Mist, and I admit that it’s the most popular misting product for a reason. However, I saw a new version of Glimmer Mist and got intrigued. Chalkboard Mist? Wha? Well, it’s time to try that out!
Here’s how it was described on a vendor website:
A new addition to the Glimmer Mist Paint Family, the Glimmer Mist Chalkboard color line offers the same glimmery sparkle of Glimmer Mist, but has an opaque finish.Â Use as you would Glimmer Mist, and enjoy the even application and rich depth of color.
On first inspection, the difference between Glimmer Mist and the Chalkboard versions are negligible. Check out the swatch tests:
As you can see, the swatches stills show back ground patterns and provide a nice wash of color and shine. I tried the Chalkboard Mist on some darker colors of cardstock, and you couldn’t really see them at all. Not really semi-opaque then, right?
So then I compared two similar colors of Glimmer Mist and Chalkboard Mist on the same matte cardstock. Can you tell the difference?
To me, the Glimmer Mist didn’t soak into the paper as well, creating a more “spotty” finish. That being said, I still really like the color and finish to the Chalkboard Mists. I also noticed that the color is more “creamy” perhaps…but I’m not sure semi-opaque is the right word. I guess you’ll just have to see it for yourself!
Since I’m a big fan of using mists in my journal, I created these pages using the Crafter’s Workshop templates:
By the way, after I misted the template on one side, I flipped it over and created a print on the other. A two-fer!
I also misted some Prima Mistable Flowers and plain white ribbon… to create a tag.
Note: I even misted a foam rubber stamp with red to create the texture on the bottom.
Now, these fun sprays come with a price tag of about $7 USD each, with shipping taxes added on top if you are buying them online. You get 2 fluid ounces, though, and since you are using just a little mist at a time, they are going to last. But I wonder why they are more than the regular Glimmer Mists?
Anyway, I really do enjoy the Chalkboard Mists and will be keeping them on my studio worktable. Sometimes a girl needs a little glimmer, and this product does the trick!
