Tip to use the Shimmery Crystal Effects and make rain drops.

Hello Stampers,

You can access my tip video below in the post or on my You Tube Channel.

Best Tips Using The Shimmery Crystal Effect. 

  • Do NOT shake the bottle/tube. If shacking the bottle it will create air bubbles. 
  • To apply you will need to squeeze real firm on the bottle tilted down, to get the crystal effect to come out. This is a very thick and sticky liquid. 🙂 
  • When finishing your project make sure to tap the bottle on a hard surface to get all the liquid out of the neck of the bottle. This is very important so it will NOT jam the opening. You can always use a fin needle to push inside the opening to make sure no crystal is remaining in the neck. 
  • Place the cap on tight and also store standing up with the cap face up to keep the liquid away from the neck of the bottle. 
  • Drying time depend on the thickness. All my project that I done so fare it took about 4 to 5 minutes to dry.
