Peacock Series Using Twinkling Waters by Luminarte

I am so delighted to be chosen as a guest artist on Creative Imaginations , Luminarte blog. While in Houston at the International Quilt Festival, I came upon this fabulous booth with the most beautiful paints in every nook and cranny. I knew it was a very very dangerous place for me to be but still I could not help myself, especially when I noticed the sets of Twinkling H20s! You may recall that I have been using these luscious, shimmering waters  in my peacock series. What a fabulous way to impart luminescence to those wonderfully, majestic peacock feathers! Twinkling Water's shimmering watercolors are composed of pigment intense, mica infused watercolors and come in a variety of colors. They can be mixed with one another to provide even more options. Wow! Who knew they had so many colors?! Luminarte has also come up with a line of Silks, Acrylic Glaze paints that are full bodied, creamy, shimmering paints. I knew, I just had to try some. My favorite colors included Boysenberry, Nutmeg, Mallard Green, Rich Cobalt, Sunburst, Ginger Peach, Pretty Peridot and Honey Amber. I will be heading up to the studio, soon to try these out on yet another  peacock piece and will be blogging about them soon! And last but not least, I purchased a Copper Pearl Pen that is a 3dimensional paint. These come in a multitude of colors and are so much fun! I have yet to try the Bare Elements sparkling powders but they look most intriguing! To find out more about their products, please visit .
