EJR - New Stuff at EJR Beads
« on: May 23, 2016, 08:11:53 PM »
Hi all

A couple of new products at EJR Beads this week which might be of interest.

Firstly - Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders - https://www.ejrbeads.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=115_214



These bottles contain a dry powdered dye and mica mix. They are designed to be "puffed" over wet paper or card, where the dye and mica then spread out to create cool effects. I have been having fun playing with them on polymer clay and mixing the powders into varnish to paint over baked clay. I'm not really sure yet what they offer the polymer clay artist over the papercrafts artist. Other than making nice strong tints for varnish, which they are very good at - they are broadly similar to regular mica powders, although you do get more for your money in the 30ml bottle


The second product is the Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Guilding Paste. - https://www.ejrbeads.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=17_215


These are really lovely - similar to inka gold paints, but a little more creamy and soft. They seem to work beautifully over baked polymer clay, drying quickly and adhering well. I haven't yet tried them over unbaked clay, but give me time! They seem to have excellent coverage, with a little dab of paint going a LONG way. The glass jar comes with a built in sponge applicator too which is really useful.

I've only two colours in stock at the moment of these paints, but more will follow.


Cernit has been restocked and the range increated a little.

I am now stocking all the available colours of the 250g blocks. https://www.ejrbeads.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=17_143_188
These blocks are such a useful size - so if there are certain colours you get through a lot of, they are ideal and great value

There are also 500 gram blocks available in some colours, including their brilliant Translucent! https://www.ejrbeads.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=17_143_149

I am still offering the Cernit clay at up to 25% below RRP, PLUS there is Free Shipping on all UK orders of just 25 or more
