Vendor Spotlight: Shimmerz, Blingz, and Spritz

Reported by Katie Renz

Who doesn’t like a little bit, or a lot, of bling to go with their paper crafting? These days, there are a lot of choices out there, but relatively new to the market is a product called Shimmerz, Shimmerz Blingz, and recently added to the family: Shimmerz Spritz. The original Shimmerz and the subsequent Blingz, and Spritz is a liquid (water-based) glitter product. The first two are painted on while the last product is literally sprayed or spritzed on.

Both the original and the Blingz come in small .25 oz jars. The website calls the Blingz, Shimmerz on steroids that provides even more glitter and that is slightly thicker in texture. These little guys really do pack a punch for a water-based product.

The newest product added to the line up is the new Spritz. These come in spray bottles that allow you to spray on the bling as a mist or a highlight.
I got a chance to play with all three and although I had had some previous experience with the Shimmerz, the Blingz and the Spritz were new to me.

According to the Shimmerz website, the paints and the spritz will adhere to just about any surface from metal to acetate. I didn’t get a chance to paint or spray on every surface, but I’ll show you some projects that I did use the products on.

My first card uses the original Shimmerz. For my example I used the Apricot and what I’ve done is painted it on bare white cardstock, which you can see on the tutu (the lightest shade), then I used a coordinating Copic marker for the leotard and used the same shade to paint over it. As you can see, it creates a very distinct color difference. The shadows of the tutu were painted with another shade of Shimmerz.

For my second item, I used the Shimmerz Blingz. In this case, I again colored my image with a Copic marker and then used the Pixie Dust Blingz to give my cupcake icing some shimmer and shine. I like the neutrals just for this reason. They allow the color underneath to shine through. I topped my cupcake off with some Stickles for the “sprinkles”. The Blingz is indeed slightly thicker, but goes on just as nicely. I used a very cheap small paint brush and it still gave me enough control to get my area covered.

For my third card, I used the Shimmerz Spritz. I tested it on some Papetrey ink cardstock just because it is nice and thick. I sprayed pretty heavily and it definitely warps the cardstock, but with good adhesive or some time spent under some heavy books, it flattens out just fine.

Note: the pink looks a bit lighter in the picture and if you wait for it to dry and spray again, it will be darker.


So what I ended up doing was spraying an entire piece of cardstock for my card front with the Baby’s Breath Spritz. I have seen the shimmery cardstock that you can purchase, but hadn’t gotten around to getting any, so I decided I would make my own. I was quite pleased with the result. I then stamped with PTI’s Aqua Mist ink once my cardstock was dry.


And finally, I was playing around a bit more with some crocheted flowers that I had made up. All three started out the same white color. The white one that you see, I used a paint brush and just dabbed on some Pixie Dust Blingz, the brown one was sprayed with Mud Pie and the pink flower was sprayed with the Cotton Candy Spritz. Not much shimmer showed up, but the floss sure took the color quite nicely. I mostly sprayed the front and just did a squirt or two on the back.


I have to say that overall, I’m a big fan of all the Shimmerz products. It is definitely worth having in your craft room, and does produce that extra shimmer that we like so much on our paper crafts.

Ironically, on the one hand, all the Shimmerz product are easy to use, but I did find them messy in the same way that anything glittery is kind of messy. All the products settle, so it is necessary to shake or stir before application. I tended to stir because that seemed to work the best for incorporation. I have to say that this is the biggest negative for me.

The spritz is easy, but you definitely need a backdrop before you spray due to the nature of spraying. This is a given, but something to be aware of nonetheless. I also noticed that one of my bottles tended to clump a bit when spraying so you do have to be aware of your bottles spray pattern. But, since its liquid it is possible to manipulate the liquid on the surface and it does tend to meld together. But, this only works if you are spraying a lot. The other thing I noticed was that the glitter from the spritz definitely came off the paper much more than the paint, so be aware.

Pros:

  • Lots of bling
  • Easy Application
  • Lots of variety of colors
  • Dries very quickly

Cons:

  • Product needs to shaken or stirred before every application
  • Glitter does transfer from your project

The Shimmerz website has a substantial list of online sources to purchase their products from, but I’ve either had personal experience or heard good things about these online stores:

Retail Cost:

  • $3.99 for Shimmerz
  • $4.10 for Shimmerz Blingz
  • $4.99 for Shimmerz Spritz

Again, I have to reiterate that I find the Shimmerz products very unique. It’s different enough that it provides a unique way and look of glamming up your projects. It’s easy to use, but you’ll need some sort of applicator for the paints.

Due to the cost of the product, it’s one that I would collect all the colors over time, but they will last you a long time. A little goes a long way. The value is overall a good one considering the longevity of the product.

I would rate the product a 8 out 10 because it does what its advertised to do.

So, how many colors of Shimmerz do you have? Or how many colors do you want? We would love it if you shared what types of products and surfaces you have used your Shimmerz to decorate on.

Giveaway time! Tell us how you add sparkle and shine to your projects and you will be entered to win a Shimmerz gift pack including 3 Shimmerz, 2 Blingz, and one bottle of Spritz. You have until Friday at midnight to enter. Good luck!!

We had the bright idea of making our very own autograph books for each of the kids to carry around. After we created each character, we used the Shimmerz to make their clothing really dazzle! I can tell you, nothing looks better than Chinderalla is a “Shimmery” blue dress! 🙂 The kids loved it!

    Great Examples, thanks. I want them all now.

    I love using shimmer mists on so many things. My favorite was a laser cut paper that looked like lace. I shimmered it a soft purple and covered a wedding book with it. Try misting it after adhering to the final paper. The top one will be darker, but the final effect is very pretty and subtle.

    I recently purchased some the Spritz to use on dance frames and gifts that I make. And oh my…I love that stuff! The more glimmer and glitz, the better!

    I use a variety of things to add bling to a page….pearls, rhinestones, stickles, sequins…

    I’d LOVE to try these new shimmerz…pick me please!

    The question is: what wouldn’t I add it to? 🙂 Bling it up!! Looks like fun.

    If it is an inanimate object it is game for being Shimmered. 🙂 You name it and it is fair game. 🙂

    Oh I would so love to try Shimmerz. Sometimes I use Pearl Ex pigments but only have two colors. I also like to use pearlizing medium mixed into my paints for a little shine.

    I use the Glimmer Mist but will have to check these out as they cost much less. I also use Perfect Pearls as I love the colors and of course heat embossing.

    This is the first time I’ve heard of these, and now I MUST have them…lol. Thanks for all the great examples and review.
    I like to use glitter pens, and like to make my own glitter paper backgrounds. If the glitter comes off, there is some sort of coating spray to make sure the glitter doesn’t go everywhere.

    I actually do a lot of what you showed us. I color my image with copics and then I paint over with the selected shimmerz. Love the effect. I also do a lot of envelope art with the sprays.

    I’ve never hear of Shimmerz before and am anxious to try them. At this time I use Twinkling H2Os, but it looks like Shimmerz will add even more sparkle and pizzaz to my cards and other items. I have also tried Glimmer Mist.

    I can thing of various uses: embellishments for scrapbook pages, on masks (especially for princesses), on chipboard letters, to add sparkle to flowers, on paintings, on a vellum overlay.

    My only means of bling at the moment are with rhinestone brads and redliner tape that I cut by hand or die cut and glitter over. The Shimmerz spray looks awesome! I wanr it soooooo badly!

    I haven’t tried these products yet, but I’m intrigued.

    Usually I use Art Institute glitter, or Jacquard Pearl Ex & Lumiere paint. But there is always room for more glimmer!
