Make your own spray inks. This is just a video to show that I tested how to make it first because I couldn't find any actual videos. I was originally going to purchase some but the shipping was ridiculous and I just refused to do it so I made my own.
The first solution ( blue ) I used warm water and filled it almost to the top, added a quarter size amount of blue acrylic paint, some mod podge as a binding solution ( that was all i had on hand ) and then a hint of rubbing alcohol.
The second solution ( green ) I filled the bottle with the rubbing alcohol and put in about two quarter size amounts of the green acrylic paint.

With both of these, you can experiment and try making your own glimmer mists. I personally didn't want any but I will make some in the future probably with gum arabic as a binding solution and pearl ex powders.
Before each use, shake well before you spray so that the paint distributes evenly.The alcohol mix was A LOT more vibrant and pigmented than the water mix. For the glimmer mist, I'd definitely go with the water mix. I will be making a tutorial of how to do it once I buy more spray bottles !
