New DecoArt Enchanted Iridescent Topcoat gives your craft project a holographic, shimmery finish. These beautiful translucent colors change in appearance depending on light angle. Thank you to DecoArt for sponsoring this post.
Holographic and iridescent items have just grown in popularity over the past few years, and I am totally here for it. I am a fan of all things shiny and opalescent, so I was really excited to try out the new Enchanted Iridescent Topcoats from DecoArt.
These new iridescent topcoats can transform your craft projects with a holographic flair. Enchanted and Enchanted Shimmer (Enchanted with an additional, subtle glitter effect) are translucent and look different over different base colors. You can get the most dramatic effect over black or other dark colors.
Aren’t they pretty?
You really need to watch the video to get their full effect. (If you don’t see the video below, it may be because of an ad blocker.)
How to Make Iridescent Trinket Boxes
I used DecoArt Enchanted to create some pretty little shimmery trinket boxes. For this project, you will need:
- Small Hexagon Paper Mache Boxes
- Enchanted Ultra Black Paint
- Enchanted or Enchanted Shimmer in your favorite color
- Round Decorative Beads
- Hot Glue Gun
Step One. Paint Paper Mache Boxes Black.
First off, paint your paper mache boxes black. The DecoArt Enchanted Ultra Black Base is awesome and really truly BLACK.
Step Two. Paint on DecoArt Enchanted.
Next, use a soft brush to apply the paint to the dried black boxes. To avoid a streaky finish, use long vertical strokes, and then while still wet, brush over in long horizontal strokes. This will help you get a more uniform finish.
Step Three. Add Bead.
Finally, when your paint has dried, use a hot glue gun to attach a fancy round bead to the top of the box. And that’s it!
What project would you want to try out DecoArt Enchanted with?
Until next time, Happy Making!
