While cleaning out my studio, I found quite a few treasures that I have been saving. Please tell me I am not the only person who has accumulated too much stuff! Well…I need to stop saving and use more of them and I will thanks to Ken Oliver. He shared the perfect idea – to use chipboard shapes with Colorburts! I love these windows from Maya Road, but I haven’t used them…until today!
Watch Colorburst and chipboard tutorial on YouTube.
What will I do with these? They are definitely calling to me as buildings but I never know where it will end up. Of course, I’ll share whatever they become.
A close up of the speckling that happens when the water hits the powder. Magic!
I have had such fun playing around with these little bottles of powdered color that I created the next Spark of Art-spiration with it! Already getting my newsletters?

- Watercolor paper
- Chipboard shapes (sorry -they are “vintage” -can’t find anywhere these are available)
how fun, Carolyn! I have Brusho, similar to color bursts. And can’t even open the bottle without little specks of color showing up for days…I can only imagine Wicki with a puff applicator!
I have never seen or heard of these before, cool. I am like you, I tend to hoard things I really like but only because we have no craft stores or big box stores where I live so I have to order everything on line LOL
Nice, rich saturated colors here. Good stuff this product. xox
Just ordered 4 of the colorbursts and cannot wait to get them!!! I got the purple, orange, green and blue but really want to get the others when I can find them!! These look awesome and I love the speckling effect!! TFS!
Forgot to add that I also find hidden treasures in my craft room! Sometimes when I receive a purchase I will stash it in a new spot and intentionally forget about it so that one day I will find it again and have a little treat to play with!
wow the color burst look like real fun . So many tools so little time to play with them all and LOL – another one on my to-get list
You’re the one artist I can trust to tell me if something is messy or not! Well, are they? Is it dust everywhere? Is it like ultra-fine embossing powder that is just looking for an excuse to stick to everything? It looks like you can only squeeze out tiny amounts but knowing me I’d smack one down and half the bottle would be airborne. I’m very tempted….
Here’s my take based on my experience SusanJane…if I squeeze I get more airborne and it spreads very finely all around. When I shake, less comes out but it is in a more concentrated area. So…my preference? The squeeze. When I squeeze only a limited amount can come out at once because of how the bottle works so no risk of one squeeze emptying the bottle. There is usually colorful “dust” on the counter after I play with these for a while so I do have to wipe that up- and if I used a damp paper towel it activates the dust to make more pretties. Hope this helps!
I love the vibrancy of color burst. I have never seen this product but it looks amazing.
Love the look you get with the colorburst! So fun!
