I have a lot of the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse colours and this is one I use the most.
I love various other Nuvo products (many sorts of drops). So I thought when this company had a big sale that I'd order a couple or even a handful and see if I liked this mousse. These little pots (or jars... plastic) are sealed w/ foil once the lid is unscrewed. This product seems to me to be a bit on the expensive side, but when this product was 50% off, I indulged. I got about 16 of them, actually. I tried a light green one first, and the spatula I ordered hadn't yet arrived, so I used my fingers to spread the mousse over a stencil of leaves. I was planning to make a card for a baby shower w/ a baby elephant and a baby giraffe from some Lawn Fawn stamps. Once the spatula arrived, I tried it and the only difference was a more consistent level in the application of the mousse/paste. By the way, "mousse" is an accurate term, but picture chocolate mousse (mousse au chocolat) that has been served and sat, waiting to be eaten.... and started to fall / congeal a bit. This mousse is not fluffy but more like condensed. It's not wet enough to be "gloppy" but "mousse" might give you the impression that it's full and fluffy when it's neither. Unfortunately, I cannot give feedback on how long it took to dry. If you put on a layer like I did (thin), I would think it would dry in 60-90 min. More than that, you'd be better off leaving it for a few hours. I left this overnight, so I can't say how long it took for sure.
I plan to use the various shades of this that I bought frequently in the next few months so that I get my money's worth. I have a tendency to stock up on some product and then forget about it when the next novelty item comes along and then get irritated at myself for wastefulness. I like the results that the light green (spring green?) mousse gave me for this project and I can see all sorts of uses for it... in stencils that can be the main attraction OR as stencils that can be a background under a message such as "hi" or "thinking of you" or even a sympathy card. I am sure I could use the mousse with a birthday cake stencil I got from Simon Hurley's line and it would be beautiful.
I'm not sure what precisely this color would be useful for since it is very striking and dark, but I would start with making backgrounds using it. I might be able to make a Xmas ornament or a Xmas light or something in the floral range. I'll use it somehow, though.... Maybe for a plume?
My FAV of the colors - rich, beautiful. Like the others, It takes a bit of manipulation, as it's drier than I thought it would be. You have to add water to a bit of it on a mat, then smash it up with a pallet knife to get it going. But once you do, it's fine.
I bought 13 of these, so I'm just gonna cut-n-paste. They all behave the same way. But sure do make pretty cards.
Creamy, easy to use. Color is phenomenal.
Love Nuvo mousse products. Easy to use and always beautiful when dries. Love the shine!
