Adding some sparkle and shine vamps up your design & brightens rooms through the bending and diffusion of light. It has the same transforming affect as mirrors; through the reflection of light your space appears lighter & larger.
There are a number of ways in which you can achieve this shimmering, water-like affect. Artists can use a range of mediums to create the look. Artist, Mary Barr Rhodes uses metallic paints, and sometimes an addition of sparkle dust to her medium to create a sophisticated and textural shine.

Copper artist, Ken Rausch not only adds color and pattern to his pieces but also sometimes bends his work into three dimensional ripples that move away from the wall and back again creating magnificent depth. This wave shape he creates only enhances the playfulness of the light that then changes in movement & tone with the angle of the sun.

Artist, Suzanne Fisher uses a mosaic or scrapbook like layering technique of stunningly unique stones, glass and jewels to build whimsical patterns that develop enticing textures. The elements she uses to create her artwork sparkle and glow; the finishing gloss intensifying the vibrancy of the colors.

Tin is In
Sheila Stewart-Shook’s artwork is embossed tin varying in color and pattern. Through her balance of organic shapes and negative space she creates brilliant and refreshing compositions. A stamp-like depth is achieved through the embossing technique, which develops range in values. The foreground edges of the patterns catch the light and shimmer against the deep neighboring shadows. What stunning contrast!
