Quick Craft Tips by Donna Salazar: DIY Pigment Powder Sprays

Hello everyone! Donna Salazar here with a “Quick Craft Tips” video tutorial for you. I am constantly playing mad scientist in my studio and experimenting with my products to see what new techniques I can come up with.

Today I’m going to show you how to make an alcohol based sparkly spray with my Pigment Powders and how the sprays differ when using different ratios of Pigment Powder to rubbing alcohol. There’s no Gum Arabic or  liquid medium like Girlie Grunge Art Medium added to the spray because I was afraid it would clog the nozzle. This spray isn’t permanent if used on an untreated surface; however, the video will show that you do get some color and lots of sparkles when sprayed on an untreated surface even without a binder to make the spray permanent.

Here are the recipes that I created for each bottle. I used 5 Tablespoons of rubbing alcohol in all of the spray bottles then added Pigment Powder in the quantities below:

Pigment Powder Blue:  3/4 teaspoon

Pigment Powder Wine:  1/2 teaspoon

Pigment Powder Gold:  3/4 teaspoon

Pigment Powder Silver:  1/2 teaspoon

Pigment Powder Pink:  3/4 teaspoon

Pigment Powder Brown:  1 teaspoon

See below Donna’s video on how to create these fabulous color sprays.
