It’s Wednesday and time for the newest MidWeek Muse video where I’m sharing the magic of the newly released 13 colors of Distress Paint!
Many in this group are my favorites in the Distress line, so they were long awaited and highly anticipated by yours truly. In today’s video I’m demoing techniques to use with the paint, including stamping with it which creates a colorful resist. That’s the last segment in the video and one I hope you’ll watch as I think it provides the most “wow” factor.
In it you’ll see me work with a really pretty Hero Arts rubber stamp named Everything Flowers. When inked with Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Tattered Rose, and Worn Lipstick, and stamped on a Manila tag, a pretty pattern of those flowers is created. Inking and stamping multiple times means the entire surface of the giant #12 tag is covered, which makes for a nice bit of wow. What comes next kicks the wow up a bunch; coloring the background. I used two of the new Dylusions colors – Ground Coffee and Pomegranate Seed – sprayed over the entire tag, then the excess is wiped away to reveal that colorful stamped floral pattern. Wow. Such a pretty group of colors to begin with, but adding Ground Coffee and Pomegranate Seed to the background creates contrast because I sprayed to make them dark and they coordinate nicely with the Distress colors.
