Thanks Monica, I should have gone to the source! I ordered some gum arabic online, I called Hobby Lobby and the only kind they had was the liquid, 75ml for 14.99! YIKES! I found the powder on a site for 2.09! HELLO! What a huge difference! So, I also got the Dyan stencil that Lynne used in the tutorial and a set of palette knives and ink droppers….all for just above the 14.99 that HL wanted for the medium.October 13, 2012 at 8:02 pm #183650
You're welcome, Manda! I've got a bottle of liquid gum arabic that I bought @ Michael's with a coupon… still expensive but better than full price. Guess I should get it out and see what it does with the Pigments. lol I've only used the pigments for making Christmas oaments thus far!October 13, 2012 at 8:11 pm #183651October 13, 2012 at 8:13 pm #183652
Yeah Manda, HL only had the liquid which wasn't what i was looking for. It is great for the sprays and stuff, but i wanted to do some other techniques that needed the powder! When you get the gum arabic if you mix it with a big glob of the primary elements and just like 2 – 3 squirts of water, the Primary elements comes out really dark and kind of bronzed. The green goes away. Hope that makes sense LOL! I've been playing with mine nonstop! Also if anyone doesn't have gum arabic, and you want to make a spray out of the elements, you can mix it with hairspray! Just a scoop of the pigment and fill it with hairspray in a bottle.October 13, 2012 at 8:18 pm #183653
Miranda, I JUST finished watching your video with the technique kit, awesome job! I noticed that you mentioned using hairspray, all I have is aerosol! Oh well, I can wait to use it as a watercolor, I have plenty of gloss and matte medium, gesso and paste. 🙂October 13, 2012 at 9:50 pm #183654
Manda, where on earth did you find all that stuff so cheap???
I own the liquid, Miranda, you're saying that it won't work or not as well?October 13, 2012 at 10:14 pm #183655
Peggy, it seemed that to make watercolors, the powder is cheaper and you can control it a little better. Just from watching vids, etc. I think the liquid would be great for making mists, like Miranda mentioned.
I realized as I was playing, the Lindy's Micas are very similar to the Primary Elements…and the Magical Micas are also similar AND they have the binder mixed in. SO, I was mixing and making a total mess today, WOOT! LOL
I am currently waiting for gesso to dry for the drips and butterfly challenge layout and I hope to start another one soon! I should probably start dinner…….blah……October 13, 2012 at 10:25 pm #183656

You're gonna LOVE the Dyan stencil; I use and treasure mine a lot!!!!!!October 13, 2012 at 11:34 pm #183657
