How fun is this!! I have never heard of Color Bursts but they may be something I need to add to my stash!
Oh wow! They’re powders! I didn’t realize that until your video – how cool is that!
So, in an instant, you have spray inks, I bet you could also mix with glaze for more of an acrylic paint effect, and we already saw Mary mix it with modeling paste. What a versatile product! Go ahead and draw my name!!!

Carolyn, thank you for the video showing the color burst powders used as sprays. I was impressed to see that the Greek stencil color didn’t smear when you used water or another color over it. I will definitely look into purchasing these color bursts.
Your project looks terrific . What a wonderful video. I love the idea of being able to customize my own spray inks.

I’ve played with making my own sprays before, but these colors look much brighter than anything I’ve been able to do so far – and they’re so easy to mix!
Great use of color I love the Color Burst powder it is so cool to work with. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.
LOVE the way you used these!
great idea! thanks for sharing~
Beautiful. Great idea to create custom color sprays!
Loved your video showing the color bursts
These are so coooool! Thanks for the vid, Carolyn 🙂 I love mixing my own colors and this is just perfect.
Luv the stencils (my latest addiction) and the color bursts!! Kasot aol
Fabulous video – thanks for sharing! I’ve been wondering if I can use my Brusho paint powder to create some spray inks – I know what I’ll be doing this week crafty wise. Thank you for the fab videos where you share what you’re experimenting with Karen
Question. So my acrylic pour is a little boring in places like the negative space. Once it is completely dry can I spritz and pour a little of this to select areas. Will that then prohibit the use of varnish?
No idea Judy – haven’t tried that so can’t answer for sure.
