Does Electric Snazaroo need an outlet?

Post by jenjenhana on Thu Apr 08, 2010 12:08 am

Just kidding! But now that you're here, can anyone tell me what Electric Snazaroo means? More glittery? Brighter? I haven't tried any. If any one has any pictures, that would be great too!
Thanks! confused

lol, clever! Electric colors to me have a built in sparkle, some, like the blue, make amazing butterflies when you use them as a base color, then line work over top, and finish with glitter. Girls love that design, and for boys...everyone knows that dragon's skin "sparkles" so I can get away with useing electric colors on them. If you are looking for brighter colors then try a few of the neons, not only do they glow under blacklight, but in the daylight they can really stop the crowd! Now the metalic colors can give off a sheen as if you are painting with metal, like steel, brass, or copper. I hope that helps.

So do the electric colors have more sparkle than the "sparkle" snazaroo? Or a different kind? Thanks so much for the info.

To me they could have called them all sparkle. While nice, I don't see that the "electric" colors do anything more than the sparkle.

A nice thing about the Snaz "metallic" colors is that if you put on lightly, they offer a sheen of the color, but if you put it on heavy 2-3 coats you get a nice solid color. Some are frustrated by this, but it can be seen as a positive.

BTW, for lovers of the sparkle orange, the new metallic orange appears(to me) to be almost the exact same color, but goes on solid the first time.

I LOVE it mixed with the metallix gold for tigers.

I can use the electrics for line work while I can only use the sparkles for sponging.

That's the diff for me.

Thank you all for the info. I am going to be buying some more metallics here soon (DFX) but I wanted to see what the buzz was.....I think I may try some of the sparkles for bases - thanks Michelle.

I find the electric green, blue, and purple to have more of a metallic punch than the sparkle colors. They're great for linework if you get your brush loaded properly.

I'm not sure why they call some Electric and other Sparkle as they pretty much shimmer the same to me... but I love the Electric Blue - perfect for Optimus Prime.

The Electric Copper is nice...

I'm not big on Electric Green or Purple. I like the Sparkle Lilac better than purple - has more oomph.

And Sparkle orange always goes on solid for me!!
