I've found if you spray the reverse side of the cardstock with water, you will counterbalance the "need" of the paper to curl. Doesn't work perfectly, but helps.

Are these anything like your background, Wolf?

Yours are really nice !

Yes & no
When I don't use a paper towel to "soak" up some of the mists, or when it's very concentrated ( using alot of mists)

Here are some samples of others I did.

Sample 1- Used pewter,green,and a bit of blue I think this would make a nice sandy beach or water BG.

sample 2 - I sprayed a circle with the pledge after I had coated the paper once w/ pledge & copper, rose, electric blue: notice how I a moon was created.. Maybe a good Halloween back ground?

Sample 3- I dipped a make up "Q-tip" into pledge I had sprayed in a shallow lid & made lines/squiggles with it on the already pledged & misted BG. Then I sprayed another layer of pledge & mists and toweled off. I think it gives so depth to the BG

Sample 4- see the difference just by adding more or less layers.. think this one kinda looks like polished stone...

These are alot more colorful & they shimmer from the metalic mists..
I'm sorry you can't see that with the ones posted...

Love to see what everyone else comes up with !

What would happen if you used spray starch, or maybe cooking oil spray? I don't have either but will be shopping and wondered if I should pick some up....this is fascinating, the examples are amazing, love them!

How interesting! I hope you try them both and let us know what you find out.

Definitely pick up spray starch, and visit this thread for some more ideas:
