Default Mists Techniques

There are such wonderful ink "Mists" on the market these days! Shimmering Mists, Glimmer Mists, Memories Mists, Color Wash sprays to name a few. Let's use this thread to share our favorite ways of using Mists for making beautiful backgrounds. Please jump right in and tell us how you like to use Mists and show us an example.

Glossy Mists

You will need 2 pieces of glossy cardstock*, and your favorite Mists. (You may want to use gloves and a spray box.)

-Spritz Mists on a piece of glossy cardstock.
-While Mists are still wet, place another piece of glossy (glossy sides together) on the first piece and press together.
-Quickly pull apart. You can press again, but don't let them stay together too long or the pieces will adhere.
-Add more Mists if desired and press together again until desired effect is reached.

You never know exactly what you will get. Here are some samples. I used a combination of Shimmering Mists, Glimmer Mists and Memories Mists.
*The bottom right sample was done on the non-glossy side of the glossy cardstock by mistake, and it still turned out.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you are doing with Mists!

Here is my card. I stamped directly on the prepared Glossy Mist background with archival ink. I used a brush to paint bleach on the bird to lighten and highlight it a bit. (Stamp: OnyxXpressions)

I saw the post tonight & wanted to play !

These were made w/ the help of pledge ( you know for dusting) so..........Pledge mist ?

I tried to jot notes as I went.. bare w/ me as I made a few.

Spray pledge over glossy card stock, spritz lightly w/ water, spray desired mists directly on top.. ( I used Walnut ink -Lilic, Tattered angels shimmer mists- Dreamsicle & Tsukineko shimmer spritz-copper) set aside for drying, when almost dry place paper towel on top to blot up remaining mists. -Your card stock will want to buckle, which can have nice results but you lose alot of the mist as they slide to one end.. I placed various items on each corner of my glossy CS to keep this from happening.

If you do not like the results, guess what, wipe fully w/ paper towel & start over. I did this a couple of times. ( Not with this perticular sample)

Heat set w/ embossing gun ( not to close or CS will bubble up)

Stamp desired image w/ Archival ink ( Jet black was used)

Heat set again. Color image (If desired) Prismacolor markers will work on top, not sure if any others will. I heat set the piece again after I colored it -As I wanted to be able to scan it quickly ( gosh it's late !).. Not sure what would happen if left to dry on its own.

Wish the scan had picked up the shimmer & shine ! Much prettier in person...

Wolf, I tried your Pledge Mist technique tonight. Fun and very exciting! The texture reminds me of snake skin or alligator skin. I partially heat set it, but some of the pooling ink is still wet. I'm letting it dry naturally. Hopefully I will be able to post the results tomorrow. Thanks for sharing this technique with us.

Here are my Pledge Mist backgrounds. I didn't have Pledge, so I used Scott's Liquid Gold. On the second sample, my ink didn't spray -- it was clogged and it squirted. The real dark places are where the pooled ink dried overnight.

Are these anything like your background, Wolf?
