This is my first venture into using paints in my scrapbooking. I have always thought I'd like the texture and look of paint on some of my projects, but didn't want to deal with the mess and/or complications of getting it onto my page. I actually saw a youtube video using a "dabber" paint to add some texture and depth to the outside edge of circle punches placed on a page layout and thought I'd give it a try. This paint is not only neat and easy to use, it has a lovely rich texture in appearance. It's easy to control how much or how little you use and the oomph it gave my little circles was just the right touch. If you are hesitant about paints, start with this and I think you'll love the additional option it gives you to dress up elements in your layouts.
well, they are easier than a brush, quick and easy way to get the color or effect you are going for. The white pearl is really lovely and helped to create incredible snowflakes for my decorating this year. The color will be a nice one for valentines, easter, birthday well, lets just say I love the dabbers.
ok, this is a GREAT product, took a class with Tim H. and we used it mix with alcohol ink to color charms, there's a chemical reaction with THE PEARL PAINT ONLY, this doesnt work with gold, silver etc. and its GREAT, drip some pearl/drop in alcohol ink color and heat set, very pretty!
This is the perfect pearly white color and great for winter or wedding layouts or altered projects. The coverage is excellent and there is little to no mess. A paint brush can be dapped into the pot to reach small places.

I totally love these little dabbers with acrylic paint. They're very versatile and they leave no need for cleaning out brushes or anything. You just take the lid off and paint and when you're done you just put the lid back on and you're done!! Couldn't be much easier!!
Although, I would recommend getting a fine brush to use with these if you want to paint tiny items because that can be tricky using the little sponge that's on the top. That's the only reason for four stars instead of five.

I liked this shimmery almost silver coloured paint. The dabber dispensor is a great tool except when you would like to control your paint dispensing volume. Great for distressing!
