Today we are taking a look at the NUVO Glimmer, a glittery paste from Tonic Studios.

We’re proud to introduce a brand new range of Nuvo Glimmer Paste. In this range there 12 colours giving you a wide variety of choice to suit multiple occasions.
They add a fabulous layer of glitter to any craft project, complement each other wonderfully and help you add a 3D look to your card or mixed media project by using a stencil. Glimmer Paste works on a number of materials such as fabric, acetate, glass and wood – they are great for any crafting project not just paper crafting. The beautiful new stencils are incredibly versatile and allow you to create beautiful strip designs or cover a large area, the choice is yours.
You can gain two very different effects – a raised finish by applying with a spatula or you can get a smooth finish by applying it with a soft cloth, as shown below.
They are the perfect addition to any crafters toolkit.
I took a good long look at the NUVO Glimmer paste during a Periscope Broadcast (if you like, you can follow me there for live broadcasts where you can join in LIVE and ask questions. It’s great fun!)
I also spent quite a while just playing- it’s the best part. I’ve distilled this down into a 9-minute video, giving you the scoop on colors, uses, and results:
Here are my takeaways:
- MSPR is $7.99 USD- maybe a bit pricey for a 50ml/1.2 oz; but this product delivers amazing glitteriness.
- It’s wonderful for stencilling.
- Works on paper, cork, fabric, wood, an acetate.
- NO SHEDDING! The glitter REALLY sticks on!
- Perfect for those folks who get bothered with the mess of loose glitter.
- Work amazing on dark and light surfaces; the iridescent colors are wonderful.
This tag was made with glitter paper I made with NUVO Glimmer Paste, then die-cut a heart shape, as well as stencilled on thru a Tim Holtz stencil.
My bottom line is while these may be a bit of an investment, you’ll definitely get a lot of bang for your buck. I would recommend getting the silver, gold and moonstone as “basic” colors, then add the others as you need for special projects.
