Tip:
  • Want to get a piece of paper to perfectly match your Twinkling H2O painted images? Just paint the paper and the match will be perfect!
  • Layering different colors of Twinkling H2Os is a great way to add the look of dimension. To help them blend, add a bit more water to the painted image.
  • Get more out of your stamps by cutting them out in a different way. Here, two size pumpkins were created with one stamp.
