I have been using a lot of glimmer mist lately so i thought that i would google how to make it!!! I can't believe how easy it seems to be to make!!! So this is what you will need and how to do it!!! Hope you have fun trying to make it!!!

This is a technique that Tim Holtz shared with us at Ranger U.

Supplies Needed:

Mini Mister (or other spray bottle)
Distress Ink Re-Inker
Perfect Pearls (This is important because Perfect Pearls have a binder in them so the sparkle stays and doesn't rub off. If you use another powdered pigment product, you will have to add some sort of binder to it - gum arabic, hairspray, etc.)
Popsicle Stick
It's so simple to do:

1. Put a scoop (or two) of Perfect Pearls into the empty Mini Mister.

You can use a popsicle stick to scoop. It's really just a pinch of Perfect Pearls. You can see the amount I've put into the Mister in the photo above. Hardly anything.
The more Perfect Pearls you put in, the more shiny your spray will be. And you can use gold, silver, copper, green, blue, whatever color of Perfect Pearls you'd like. It will color your mist a bit, which is fun.

(You'll notice that my Mini Mister is slightly blue. The last color of mist I had in it was blue. But, it's completely clean, which is important.)

2. Put several drops of re-inker into your Mini Mister.

You can use as much or as little as you want. I like to use one dropper full.

3. Add water.

Be careful not to fill it up to the top because you will need to shake it up (to mix the Perfect Pearls, which settle at the bottom).

4. Shake that mist and you're ready to spray!

I tried that this week, but didnt use Distress Ink, thought I would just use a re-inker that I received as a freebie, dont even know what brand it is cause there is a sticker covering it. However it failed dismally as I didn't actually read the little part of the sticker that said "WATERPROOF DYE INK"! Needless to say, I just ended up with little blobs of dye in the water, that wouldn't disperse.
