Painting Silver Glimmer

After discovering how well the Stampin' Write Markers work for tinting the Silver Glimmer Paper (hang in there, you can order it September 1st!), I thought about trying it with an Aqua Painter and Classic Ink Refills.  The Glimmer Paper is quite sturdy, almost like it has a plastic or waxed paper base, so it was a fairly certain bet that it could withstand getting wet.
Here is what I observed.......start with a color much darker than you want to end up with. The Heat Tool was used to speed drying time, and as the paper dried, it got remarkably lighter, as shown below. The first image shows the left side already dried, and how dark the right side is before drying. The second image shows both sides dried.
Materials used: Silver Glimmer Paper, Pool Party Classic Ink Refill, Aqua Painter, Heat Tool
