Metallic Reinkers

Hi all - below is an example of a piece I did trying to use the metallic reinkers. It appears that I have too much ink. However, when I tried to do straight lines, it appeared that I did not have enough ink. Then I thought, I should just go over it again and proceeded to remove some of the ink I laid the first time. Help!

Where it twisted, the ink beaded up. Is it supposed to do that?

Shari, I really like this background! The metallic inks are slightly different than the regular dye Rainbow inks. You seem to need more ink on the sponge to get even coverage. What I have found to work for me when doing stripes if I don't get complete coverage in an area is to let it dry completely and then go back over it. If it is not dry on the paper though, the new ink application doesn't leave a clear pattern or good distinction of colors.

You are doing great! Have fun and share your experiments with us!

I really like this for a background!!- sounds like it wasn't what you had in mind - which is frustrating -but that is often when I end up with something better than I pictured. I am glad you shared this with us -

Shari, I agree with Daylene and Linda....I LOVE this BG! Is this done on black GLOSSY CS??? If not, that might be part of the problem, too. Matte cardstock soaks up the ink much faster, so it's harder to get a smooth line when dragging your sponge over the papers. But like Daylene said, the metallics also have a different makeup than the regular rainbow inks, so they do react differently....to me they seem to dry more quickly or something, but I can never seem to get perfect lines with 'em. On paper, at least, they work WONDERFULLY on surfaces like paper mache or polymer clay! But just keep playing with 'em, I KNOW you'll get the hang of it!!!

Greetings!
I don't use the metallics on glossy because of that beading problem, (also because Dee says to use them on matte). They do take more ink, and as Daylene says, sometimes more than one coat. And they dry very, very quickly! But they are so worth it! I love the colors and the shine.

As a side note, I really like the use of metallics on black with Perfect Pearl accents (like my "Metal and Pearls" card). These products produce stunning effects, even for those of us who are new to all of this.

You do wonderful work Shari. Even the things that you think of as "mess-ups" are beautiful!

Ah, thanks for pointing that out KV, as you can tell, I use mine on paper mache and clay.

I am soooooo glad you mentioned that Dee uses matte. I totally forgot that. Also I have used up too much of my glossy black and thinking I need to buy more. Oh, now I have to go into my stamping palace and do my brother's card over using black matte.

Is your metal and pearls card in your gallery? I guess I'll have to go and look.

Happy Stamping everyone.

Thanks for the tip about the matte paper, KV. I didn't realize that! No wonder my efforts on black glossy haven't been as good as I would have liked. Now I will have to look for some of that matte paper in black.

Wow, Shari!

I love this background effect. There is so much motion and demension to these "little pieces of twisted metal spinning in space."

Keep working with these inks and show us what you come up with.

Shari, I really like this background too. Like the Lava lamps, they seem to float. I think the bead effect looks cool. Done any more with the metallics we can see?
