Blogtober - Day 6 and new stash arrives .....

I had a good post day today when 2 small parcels of goodies arrived from Chocolate Baroque. As I was already in my little craft room and had just started to get some supplies out to play with, I put them to one side and started unpacking and, of course, playing with the new goodies.

First of all, Colourcraft Aztec Metallics - these are really shimmery and pretty.

Sadly they don't put the names of the colours on the bottles and some are similar; they give a lovely sheen and I can see these coming out for the Christmas crafting.

I did try using them on the gelli plate but they just beaded up. This did create a nice effect when printed but I possibly wouldn't bother to use them on the gelli plate on a regular basis.

In the next box were these not so little pots of shimmery, glimmery joy and a bottle of acrylic wax.

I used the soft form relief paste through a stencil and left it to dry and this is the result - isn't it beautiful?!

I didn't get around to having a play with the wax so that's my unpacking done for today. Don't forget to head on over to Syreeta's blog via the Blogtober button on the side bar.


  1. Wow!! Love those paints, though it does seem odd to have no colour name on the bottle!!

  2. They all look very lovely and I look forward to seeing what you make with them

  3. They do look fab!!! Metallics can be such a minefield....
