Create metallic effect backgrounds and highlights using these hand cut flakes from Creative Expressions. Each pot contains uniquely cut pieces, offered in pure colors as well as custom blends (aluminum flakes colored with dyes and pigments for wonderful variations of colors and effects). Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes can be used in a variety of ways, from traditional gilding techniques to use as inclusions in handmade papers and in resins, to layering and applications with adhesives. Apply with Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue, which remains tacky after application until your gilding flakes are fixed to it. Buff with a rough sponge to finish.
