Oh my goodness I can't stand this product.
But for some, (including my mom) this product rocks.
The problem for me is that I feel like it makes a big, uniform mess on my canvas. And covering this stuff up is damn near impossible. Acrylic paint alone does not seem to stick or cover the tiny, white bits.
If I really want to create this effect, I'd rather make my own medium: Gloss Gel + cracked egg shells does the trick. The only hang up with this however is that the egg shells (unlike the medium) does not reflect any light. That said, is that really a hang up? You decide.
If you're looking to create a "snowy effect" on your painting with a bit of shine, this product is for you.

I am living proof.
