I've been a lucky girl!
I've been sent some of the new colours from
STAEDTLER's fimo effect line to preview. They won't be available until late 2013 but I just had to share them. I'm in love with these yummy new pastels with a translucent base and a metallic shimmer.
I took these pics in the evening with very little light. I might have rushed things a bit but I was eager to show these new colours off! I'll take more shots soon and share them as I get them.

wow! This is probably my very favorite.

It's a deep red translucent clay with an iridescent shimmer peeking through it.
is a showstopper.
When cured it turns a deep blue black and somehow lets the glitter and shimmer of thousands of stars gleam through.
I'll be doing more colour test shots over the next few weeks to show the depth of colour these new clays have. Stay tuned for more details and more pictures.
Now I just need some sun!
