New Release – Tattered Angels Shimmers

We love to share new things and we know the Tattered Angels Team has been working behind the scenes on a new paint that you are going to LOVE.  The new collection is called Shimmers and that is just what it does.

Shimmers are liquid watercolor paints that are filled with pigment, matching mica and water.  Together they watercolor beautifully.  They are presented in the same cool little bell bottle as Glimmer Glaze, complete with a brush so you can watercolor on the go!

There are a total of 21 colors in the Shimmers Collection, swatched  here on the new Tattered Tangles Swatch Card Paper.

We chose our palette by starting with the color wheel. Then we added some additional neutral and metallic colors, shown here on the new Tattered Tangles Color Wheel Paper.

First came the primary colors: Red Shimmers, Blue Shimmers and Yellow Shimmers.


Then the Secondary Colors followed: Green Shimmers, Orange Shimmers and Purple Shimmers. You can also mix the primary colors to make your own colors.


We also have Tertiary Colors: Red/Orange Shimmers, Red/Purple Shimmers, Blue/Green Shimmers, Blue/Purple Shimmers, Yellow/Green Shimmers, Yellow/Orange Shimmers.


Our Neutrals/Metallics are: Brown, Copper, Bronze, Black, Grey, Silver, Goldenrod, Brass and Gold. You can blend and mix these base colors to create thousands of different colors and tones.

Shimmers are the perfect choice for Adult Coloring (Adult Coloring with a Brush) to bring out the art in this amazing Canvas Corp 12×12 Printed Cardstock Paper – Spring Flowers Rev on Ivory.


Same great black and white paper and you can paint it so many different ways, like the one Shannon Green created below. Stunning!!!!


Use all the colors to create a work of art, or choose one to make it a focal beauty.  


Or pick one color and have fun coloring everything!!!!

Many of us who love to adult color simply close the book when the coloring is done. Why not make cards, bookmarks, tags, mini canvases, layouts and more?  It is like creating your own paper line in your own color palette.  A wide range of coloring papers can be found throughout the Canvas Corp Brands Paper Collection.

The new Shimmers paints are now available in the store for wholesale (online wholesale application) and retail orders, along with the swatch card and color wheel papers.  They will be shipping this week to help you bring color to your next project.
