My nephew's favourite colour is blue, but as you may know there are MANY shades of blue! That's what made this custom tray I made for him so tricky, it had to be just the right blue, with just the right amount of translucence and shimmer. I experimented with different mica powders in my kit that offer a real shimmer, and added a touch of liquid pigment to concentrate the colour.
In making this piece I also learned the hard way that not all gold foil flakes are alike! I now stick with specific brands that properly suspend and disperse in the resin instead of quickly clumping up. More expensive but totally worth it, my nephew loves his custom tray!
