How To Make A Mixed Media Background with Tattered Angels Paints – Lost Paradise

I like creating mixed media projects and I can’t imagine them without Tattered Angels Paints. The card features Glimmer Mist Paint which was the first mist paint on the market and still going strong today.

This water-based paint is made with high quality ingredients, including rich dyes and micas. The mica disperses through the paint when you shake and mist onto just about any surface. You can choose one color or a combination to get the look and style you desire and it will make your project truly a one of a kind.


In this project, I used Glimmer Mist – Old Penny and Verdigris to create a delightful background; the mists are perfect for it and give you endless possibilities. I didn’t spray but I simply splashed my project with the paint mixed with some water. You can mist with the applicator, apply with a brush, take the top off and drop the paint onto your project or spray onto your craft mat and drag the paper through the paint, so many options and ways to apply the paint to get different looks, try one or a combination of them to get amazing looks.


The result is completely different from if you have sprayed it. Using the mists this way, gives you the opportunity to decide if you want to add more color or not and, what is important, where exactly you want put your color. You can also let the paint air dry or apply heat gun to bring out the mica and really show off the colors.


You can apply Glimmer Mist paints to a wide range of surfaces including paper, canvas, burlap, silk, ribbon, lace, metal, plastic, glass, plexiglass, chipboard, backboard, resin, ceramic, concrete, wicker, wood….and the list goes on. For slick surfaces apply a little heat and for very porous surfaces like canvas the color will be very rich immediately. “I love this way of using the Tattered Angels Mists.”

You have to try it! Glimmer Mist comes in over 200 colors and each color is made one recipe at a time with an added touch of Mica. You will also find Simply Sheer Mist if you do not want mica on your project with another 75+ colors.
