Homemade Resist Spray {DIY Goosebumps!}

Happy Monday Folks! Last month while I was at the Heirloom show I saw Pat from Technique Junkies make some fun samples using the product Goosebumps. I planned on buying a bottle (Pat did not sell it or I would have got it from her) but then I got too distracted by all of the other goodies at the show and forgot I wanted some. So I decided to see if I could make my own, here is a project made with my homemade version:

Not bad and totally fun! My homemade version does not have texture like the store bought Goosebumps spray but the look is pretty darn close. Watch this quick video for techniques:

Lindsay’s Resist Spray Recipe

1 Tablespoon white glue (non-washable)

1 Teaspoon metallic liquid watercolor or a bit of fine mica powder (optional)

3 ounces water

Place all ingredients into to a spray bottle (with a cap) and shake well before use each time. Make sure to replace the cap when not in use so that the glue won’t dry in the nozzle. Measurements do not need to me exact, if your sprayer will not spray well flush it with water and add more water to the mix. If the spray is too fine add more glue. Use what you have on hand for glue such as Elmers, Mod Podge, tacky glue or whatever.

It is a fun way to make unique backgrounds for a card! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. I love the addition of this technique, it adds a lot of eye candy to the lovely designs you did.


  2. very cool…I’m going to try this tomorrow as it is 11pm here right now.
    Thanks Lindsay.


  3. Very neat technique. I have made my own shimmer type sprays in a few colors. I will have to give this a try. Thanks for posting.


  4. Great idea Lindsay, I have the goosebumps and it does add texture but this is the same look for sure! The splotchy colors look a bit like that Frantaj I have been eying too. Thanks so much for sharing this great idea!


  5. I hadn’t heard of Goosebumps spray until I saw your video on YT last week, but I sure like the effects you got. Your concoction is on my list to try out. Thanks for sharing all your great ideas, Lindsay.


  6. Awesome! Can’t wait to try this. TFS Lindsay.

  8. Hi Lindsay, do you have to do anything special to clean the stamps after using your extra special homemade resist spray? šŸ™‚


  9. Lindsey….You make my day!!! I so enjoy your videos..you make me crack up cause you are you!!!! and I DO try your recipes..and I’m only 30 minutes from Papermart…my daughter has been using them for a long long time


  10. Lindsey, you never cease to amaze me with your ingenuity and cleverness, not to mention your creativeness! lol This just is brilliant and economical! Thank you. šŸ™‚


  11. WARNING !!! It’s Addictive! Tried it, LOVE it, so much fun! Thanks, Lindsey!


  12. I love this technique. I love your tag. It is gorgeous! thanks for sharing this. Can you purchase The shimmer paint at Michales or do you have to order it? Can you tell me the name brand so I can find it? Thank you. Edwina Brown edwina.brown@live.com


    • you can use peal ex or any mica power in place of the shimmer watercolor paint, the dollar tree has a shi,,er powder eye shadow that works great too;)I got my paint from blick art materials online;)


  13. this is yet another FAB idea! Do you think it would work with watercolor instead of stamp ink?


  14. Thanks for another awesome video!! One quick idea, I wonder if you can add some really fine sand to the mixture to get more texture into the spray. Also one question, what TH ink is the blue that you used in the first sets? I loved that color combo!!


    • I think the sand would clog but you could sprinkle on some after maybe. I used tumbled glass an broken china so one of them..the dark blue was faded jeans I think;)


Tell me what YOU think!
