The difference is that their colors tend to be more vibrant and they do not have as many colors available. Here are your choices currently:
Petite Twinkling H20's - (6) 5gm pots in a package (6 different packs available) - If you Google you will find the different prices being asked for them. I always do that when buying anything. I either bring them up in separate tabs to compare, or put them in a folder until I decide. I also look at shipping. A lot of times you can get free shipping depending on the amount of purchase.
Grand Twinkling H2O's - Sold individually in 10gm pots (24 colors) - As for prices, I suggest Googling as above.
Radiant Rain Shimmering Mists - 22 colors - Same suggestion on pricing as above.
Radiant Rain Concentrate - 24 colors (Daubers) - Same suggestion on pricing as above.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE between the NEW and the other twinks:
1. The colors are more vibrant. People have commented on the disappointment by fewer colors. Watercolors are generally deeper pigment color. For people doing true watercolor, you don't need all of the different colors. You simply wet your surface for that color first with clear water and then add your color to the shade you want. I use 2 Niji watercolor brushes to paint. One is clear water and the other I use for colors. I clean my brush on left over scratch paper or on a Kleenex, depending. I don't spray my pots. I always thought that was messy when just watercoloring, but that's another lesson. (The important thing to remember is you have one deep color that can be many shades, light to dark, of the same color).
2. The Mists and the Concentrates - They have gorgeous mists and, JMO, I would use the daubers for anything where they used "spray the pots". LOLOLOL The daubers are wonderful too.
Here are some blogs, etc. where you can see artists using these current products:
1. Coloring With Twinkling H2Os
2. Luminarte by Creative Imaginations
4. Twinkling Stamped Images
5. Coloring with Twinkling H2Os
6. Twinkling H20s Over Copics
7. Coloration mit Twinkling H2O Okay, so it's in German. The point is she watercolors like I do!!!! If you have wondered about watercolor, this is a pretty good idea of how it's done for cards. I use Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth 80lb. for most of my watercolor when rubber stamping. I have an email into Neenah. I noticed since I last ordered the Super Smooth that anything related is listed as Digital. I have asked if it's the same and will let you know, for anyone interested.
8. Ruffled Card Birthday Wishes
9. You Are Amazing Another good example of watercolor.
10. Stamping With A Whiff Of Joy - A lot of their cards are painted with Twinkling H2Os.
That's what I have for today, everyone. Thanks for stopping by to look and share. Have a great weekend!!!
