Welcome to one of my new favourite things: Cosmic Shimmer Mica Watercolour Paints.
Are they not delectable?
I bought a small selection last week, and I'm already hooked and have ordered more. Just dip a wet brush in the pot and away you go. Here are some ATC backgrounds, some with a very light wash effect, and others with a deep accumulation of colour.
And some close ups.
These will be part of the 2011 Playing Cards Challenge for the water and earth suits.
