Two ways to use Pigment Sprinkles

Pigment sprinkles add a watercoloured, naturalistic look to any project and I love them! I just wish I'd bought them sooner.

I’ve used them in two ways for this project. For the pineapple, I wet the watercolour paper, sprinkled on my pigment and spritzed it liberally with more water to give this washy look.

For the background, I flicked on some sprinkles using a dry brush and only spritzed very lightly. This made the different colours within the pigment separate to give this fun multi-coloured look.

When I ran the pineapple body through the Big Shot, because it was watercolour paper, the pieces didn’t fall out easily, so I quickly taped them in place from behind as I liked the look. I hesitate to advise how to recreate this look, as all die-cutting machines are calibrated differently but you can try thicker cardstock or maybe two pieces – the top one will be cut all the way through while the bottom one should be cut partially to give you the pattern without all the pieces falling out.
