Now that they've been around for a bit (& I admit to scooping up a load of them, as I'm partial to things that I can customize), I'm curious if you all have bought them, liked them, made them your own, & how? I haven't really had a chance to play with them yet, but I see lots of possibilities....

I've misted and colored with copics.

I bought the mistable ones and the sticky ones. I love the sticky ones, the glittered thickers were always my favorite anyway and now the letters match my pages perfectly. The mistables? Ugh. Not a fan at all. Won't be buying those again.

I've used microbeads on them and glitter. I tried to seal the microbeads with sray and ALL of the color came off. Love the beads, but I won't be trying the spray on the DIY thickers again.

I got some of the ideas from a Shimelle video.

I love the sticky ones so that I can make my own glitter letters/numbers.

I was pleased I managed some sublety with color variation using sprays. They sure do just continue to absorb paint though. Next time I'll probably gesso first then color. ( this is starting to sound like a lot a work.....) -k
