If you buy any crafty product this year get this...Prima / Finnabair's Fire Ruby Icing Paste. You don't need to make anything with it...just sit n' look at it, give it a stir & look at it some more. It's gorrrrrrjus stuff... a thick, creamy, sparkly gel / paste and the colour is mind bogglingly lush. Like rich, red blood but in a non-gory way.
Having sat for 8 days...staring, stirring, oooohing n' arrrring and staring some more....I decided to use it with my all time favourite stencil, 'Cell Theory' by Crafter's Workshop, and made a card.
You can put it on as thin or as thick as you like, it'll dry with what ever texture and depth you desire.
And that colour!!!!!
