These Mousse products from Nuvo intrigued me. I ended up waiting until they were 50% off and then buying a bunch... like about 15. I got a wide variety of colors and I am partial to greens, blues, and aquas. I made a backdrop for a card using a leaf stencil and a light green Nuvo mousse. "Mousse" is accurate, but think of a dish of "mousse au chocolat" (chocolate mousse) that has sat around during an evening, uneaten... how it's sort of congealed or condensed and in a lump, not fluffy and puffy. When you open this jar (pot), which comes w/ a foil liner, by the way, the mousse is moist but not gloppy. You sort of have to scoop it out. It spreads very easily; it's slick against the paper. I used my fingers to spread it over the leaf stencil (see image) but the next day I used my new spatula that arrived that morning. Both spread the mousse well -- the only difference was the uniformity of the level of mousse.
Unfortunately I cannot tell you how long the mousse takes to dry completely. I would say a thin layer would be dry in an hour or maybe less. If you really glob it on the paper in a thick layer, it might take a few hours. I left this card base to dry overnight. It was beautiful in the morning and ready to make into a card.
I think this company makes outstanding products. The only one I have not been dazzled by is the Stone Drops, and, to be fair, I have not purchased them. I've watched videos online and read product descriptions and have just thought "meh."
NICE AND CREAMY
Love this metallic color!
