who has the best metallic white?

Post by gulaben on Sun Aug 07, 2011 6:00 am

I'm stocking up on a few different colours and I have a few ideas for designs with a sparkely white base, however I don't know which is the best metallic white. I do live in the tropics and have had trouble with snaz going very jelly like ( though i still love the stuff) but I havent really tried any of the other brands.
Opinions?

I use a wolfe metalic white and it is great! (As long as you don't get it too wet!! It took me weeks to dry my one up after becoming too gluggy... now I make sure I never spray the cake and just the sponge or brush)

Wolfe is awesome! It does fabulous as a base, or if you want to just add a touch of sparkle it does pretty well for line work. I love it! I also add it to some of my other colors when I want them to look softer or have a metallic feel. I just load the white on the sponge, and then add the other color.

The DFX metallic white works wonderfully too! I have the Snaz Sparkle white & it's ok, but not as nice as the DFX.

I go with the Kryolan Interferenz Silver too... really nice shiny white. If I want a more shear look, Grimas Pearl Silver

I use IF Narce to mix with matte colors to make them pearlized.
I LOVE with reckless abandon IF Pearl White because it's the perfect blend of opaque with a little sheen, so it lends itself to avant garde type makeup.
IF Silver I love because it's a sheer, shimmer that just says, "Fairy"
I also use DFX or Wolfe Metallic white, only I use them as a pore filling base when I'm painting with a color known to stain the skin.

Kryolan IF Pearl and DFX or Wolfe Met. White would give you the opalesence you want, but I think that Kryolan is the better of the 3...but not by much. If you want a sheer opalesence, I'd go with Kryolan IF Silver...
