"Samantha" candy aurora pigment - USA
"Samantha" contains 0.5 gr of yellow candy aurora pigment. This pigment is a real stunner and will look different depending on what base polish colour it is used over and with what stamping polish (black or white).
Used with "Stick with Me" (sticky white stamping polish) you will see tones of pink and purple when viewed straight on. At an angle you will see the colours shift from yellow/gold to green to teal and blue. Different lighting conditions will show a different colour shift. "Samantha" used over "Stuck on You" (sticky black stamping polish) gives a range of colours from gold, to olive green to emerald green, to teal and blue.
"Samantha" pigment does tend to have a slightly more grainy look when quick dry topcoat is applied over a waterbased topcoat. However none of the pigment colour shift is lost and in some lighting the graininess tends to make the shift more apparent.
When using "Samantha" with sticky stamping polish
- start with a matte or semi-matte base, then stamp, clean your plate (or wait 10 to 20 secs) then gently apply pigment to your stamping
- seal with a water based or gel topcoat, a regular quick dry topcoat will ruin the effect of the pigment.
- applying the pigment to the stamper and then stamping will dull the effect of the pigment and ruin your stamper. This method is not recommended
