For the fish, I used stencil LG 613 Koi. The fish were created using D54 Roman Coin Dazzlers and D51 October Dazzlers. I tried to keep the individual colors in their own wells and away from the tips of the fins to the best of my ability, but some crossover was fine. Both colors are Hexi Dazzlers, which means a lot of bare space around them. It looked like dots at this stage. I needed to fill in the blank spaces, so I used a color that appears in both of the multicolored Dazzlers. I used one of my absolute favorites--Ultrafine Opaque 62 Copper Canyon (itself a blended color). Then, I placed Microfine Opaque 501 Monarch on top of the stencil and pushed it into the wells. This created a sharper edge than I would normally have had with the Ultrafine, and added a little extra depth of color to the fish. You can see the look most distinctly in the tail of this fish. Finally, I used Ultrafine Transparent 85 Crystal on the exposed areas. The eyes are sequins from Dazzlers D15 Sea Nymph and were glued on with Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear.
This twist on the technique was so much fun! I would love you to give it a try. The great news? For the month of June Art Glitter is selling all 1 oz jars of glitter for $5.98 regular price $7.32! This INCLUDES Dazzlers! The 1 oz size includes a lot of glitter. Hope even if you don't play along with the challenge you will take advantage of the great price of glitter in June! http://artglitter.com/
