      Has anyone tried stamping with Perfect Medium and Lindy's Stamp Gang Micas or Magical Micas. I was just wondering if it would work the same as it does with Perfect Pearls.

        I haven't tried stamping with the micas just using the perfect medium. I'm not sure if you would get the same effect since the micas have to be wet in order to get the full effect. Perfect Pearls are ready to go right out of the pot. I don't think that the Perfect Medium will get them wet enough.

        You should try and then report back and let us know!

          I might have to do that!

            Interesting…it looks like the regular Micas from Lindy's will work with Perfect Medium. The Magical Micas, will stamp, however, the color doesn't seem to change the way it does with water. Here's the example…

            Maybe if you misted the stamp with a mini mister and then heat set it the Blue Hawaiian would change? Maybe I'll have to try that too.

            Here's the Micas with just water…

            I like your stamp Amber. Looks like the stamped result gives you a lot of texture. Thanks for posting the samples for us.

              That's what I was afraid of, not enough juice to change the magical mica. The other looks really fabulous.

              Let us know how the next attempt works. 🙂

                Lisa, I think you're right! The magical micas are just not meant for this technique. The mini mister did not help out at all! But, at least I now know that I can use my regular micas with Perfect Medium. Lea something every day!
