Arty Neon Burst - a bit disappointing

Post by monelle on Fri Sep 12, 2014 8:50 pm

For some reason, I thought Arty Neon Burst would really pop, but I am disappointed. Below is photo with Arty True Rainbow on the left, and Neon Burst on the right. Maybe if I subtitute some real red as the last color ... waddy'll think?

I like that light blue but that red is barely showing... I think I still like it as it is kind of nice and soft... but maybe you're right with thinking of substituting that red.

I actually love the Neon Burst. It was the second split I bought myself and I use it for Tropical Designs. Not so bright to over power the designs and when you add starbursts, it really pops. I do eventually want a real rainbow but for now, my Neon is my favorite

I know it's been a while but I was practicing my 2 dip flowers and thought I would share. This is the Neon rainbow arty cake. I almost wish I could cover myself with it, lol

Two more and then I'll stop! lol I forgot I made these two. This was me playing with the different colors when I first bought the cake.



This little orange guy is Billy Bob. He was quite the hit at my little cousin's Halloween party a few years ago and all the kids wanted him on their cheeks and arms. They dubbed him Billy Bob. They were very upset with me that I didn't paint at their party this year because it meant no Billy Bob, lol I like being known for something.

The neons splits are always more sheer, but I like them. Tag Neon Cocktail is my favorite though.

Had the same disappointment with my TAG neon rainbow one stroke. Only it was worse then the Arty imo.

I find neons really don't like being put on with a brush, they do need a few layers to really get the full effect. Try applying with a sponge using the pouncing technique, I find that works WAY better.
