My order from Scrapbook.com arrived today and I thought I would give you a little review on the Honey Medium starter kit. I also bought the new Gelatos Iridescent kit. Which I will review at another time. But, I will tell you that if you like shiny things like I do, you will love them!! Just a beautiful array of new colors.
Silicone Craft Tray and Spatula, which are very nice and will be totally useful to for other techniques and projects.
8.5oz jar of Honey Medium- the viscosity is that of honey. In the jar, it has a cloudy appearance. But, dries crystal clear. When you look at it, you’d expect that it would smell good. But, it doesn’t!
2 Gelatos- Iced Rose’ and Iced Coffee Both colors are metallic… I wish they would eventually come out with a wider range of metallic colors.🤗
Inclusions include 3 different small packets of mica flakes, 1 packet of black paint flakes and a packet of water beads, which expand with the moisture.
Okay, so after 3 days of trying to work with this stuff, I will tell you there is a major learning curve involved. You lay down too much and it will never dry. The picture above was a major fail. Lay down too little and it will tear when you pull it up.
The photo above was my final try and I did have success…kinda.. not perfection. But, I will take what I can get at this point. I did decide to tint it this time, with one of the new iridescent colors and it came out beautiful!!
In the end, you have to have patience of a saint if you want to use this product and have perfect results.. lol This is not something that I would use consistently. But, for those certain projects.. I’d probably break it out again. All in all, I chalk up my fails to user error.
Until next time…
*If you have tried this product tell me how it turned out for you*
