Colourful Thoughts Jewel Enamels (a review by Me, Jennifer Hodge!)

I have been a stamper for almost 20 years now, and the versatility of products created for the stamping industry never ceases to amaze me. The new Colourful Thoughts Jewel Enamels brought to Australia by Twiddleybitz are no exception. The vivid colours in this range of ultra thick embossing enamels are only one of the great things about these products. Colours available are - Diamond Clear; Deep Gold; Light Gold; Rich Silver; Fire Opal; Citrine; Sapphire; Peridot; Pink Sapphire; Amethyst; Jet.

These Jewel Enamels are beautiful to work with, and while there are similar products on the market, these are fast becoming my favourites! One thing that sets them apart from the competition are the bottle sizes available; not too much and not too little but just right - available in 30 gram pots for a recommended retail of $13.99.

Jewel Enamels give fantastic coverage on many mediums including cardstock, chipboard, and metal. Effects you can create are unlimited by this medium - you can melt, re-melt, stamp into, mix colours, personalize brads, and use in good quality crafting moulds. Another technique is heating using a melting pot or ironing between two layers of baking paper or pouring into cold water for a lava effect.

Made a mistake? Yet another great thing about Jewel Enamels is that if you make a mistake, just re-melt and keep going! You can manipulate with a soldering iron or cookie cutters, suspend beads, glitter, or just about anything in it while molten before cooling down; the possibilities are endless!

Team your Jewel Enamels with Twiddleybitz chipboard and Colour sprays and you'll have projects and embellishments that "WOW" every time! I would definitely recommend adding Colourful Thoughts Jewel Enamels to your crafting supplies, you will love them and never look back!
