    Default Craft Artist - Mica Magic

    Was watching a programme with John next Door this afternoon who was demoing this product. I wasn't particularly impressed with the quality and it struck me how similar it was to a cheap eye shadow palette.

    Could it be the Summer Brights is actually Miskos 35 eye shadow palette in option 35E. Available all over the Internet from 2.95 on EBay or 9.99 on Amazon. Of course I could be completely wrong. . Was about 20.00 on Hochanda.

    I didn't see the programme Julie but you got me thinking of all the ancient make-up I threw away a few months ago. Drat and darn, it never occured to me to try it out on paper. apparently someone did and is cashing in on it!

    They certainly look very similar to what is being shown on tv

    It reminded me of those pots of stuff that were available a few years ago. Can't remember what they were called, but they were expensive. I know Dot was asked by several folks to get it in, but she refused as she had nowhere to put it, there were about 60 different colours. She also didn't like the idea that being a powder it might not be a good thing for asthmatics. I think it was one of those 'flavour of the month' things for about three months, haven't seen sight nor sound on it in years. Wonder how many pots of the stuff were chucked in the back of the cupboard!

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side.

    I won a set of cosmic shimmers and mica powders once
    but found cheap eye shadows worked just as well so glad I never paid for them

    How was he using them? I used to do that "stamp with Versamark and brush powder eye shadow over it" technique years ago but I was never too thrilled with my efforts. I definitely think the shimmer eye shadows will be as good - but don't put crafting mica powders on your eyes though, as they might cause irritation.
