Hello friends! Katy here with another Kaleidoscope Powder technique using Liquitex Gloss Heavy Gel Medium. I used five Kaleidoscope Powders on both black and white cardstock to show you how each powder would look. I got a bit carried away and created 10 cards with the backgrounds I made.

These panels worked up really quickly and were all dry in about an hour. I just love how the colors pop on the black cardstock and I absolutely love the two-tone and tone on tone look on the white. In the video below, I really tried to capture the subtle color shift on the white, but it was really difficult. Rest assured these are worth having in your stash if you like shimmery metallic looks on your cards.

The Kaleidoscope Powders I used are Mercury, Asteroid, English Mustard, Neptune and Saturn. The stencil I used is the Maker Forte Dahlia Bloom Stencil.

In the video I talk a little bit about why I chose the gel medium over the modeling paste that I have, and basically it comes down to transparency. The gel medium is glossy and transparent and allowed the shimmer to shine and the light modeling paste is matte and opaque and took the shimmer right out of the paste.

Below is the video, and as always if you have trouble watching here on the blog you can click here to watch on Youtube.

I used Kaleidoscope Powder in Mercury for these two panels. Mercury is an interference color and when you see it in the jar it looks white, but when you add it to black Cardstock the color transforms into this beautiful pink. In the photo I was able to capture the pink shimmer on the white panel, much better than the in the video…haha

Products Used:

Next up, Kaleidoscope Powder in Saturn. This color reminds me of a duo-chrome, it still has two-tone color variations when moving the panel around, but also has a solid metallic color on both the cardstocks.

Products Used:

Next we have Kaleidoscope Powder in Neptune, another interference color that looks white in the jar. This is the prettiest blue on the black and in real life so pretty and soft on the white.

Products Used:

Here we have Kaleidoscope Powder English Mustard. This color is a metallic so as you can see it will show on both cardstocks. I reminds me of antique gold.

Products Used:

And last but not least, Kaleidoscope Powder in Asteroid. Asteroid is a beautiful interference that looks like a pale gold, just lovely.
