So far I've been edging my holiday cards and using the inks for stamping my holiday snowflakes. I was delighted at how well they work for stamping. Still so many different projects I want to try these on: journal pages, scrapbooking and more cards.
A perfect addition to the current Tim Holtz Distress Stains. Wonderful to work with and it adds a super metallic touch to paper, plastic. Love that you can apply it heavy or lightly. It's a wonderful accent.
I watched the Tim Holtz video introducing these metalic stains and decided they would add to my artwork. They really are beautiful, just like the other Distress Stains. Well worth it.
Love the metallic paints. Being the paint is delivered by dauber method I was doubtful they would deliver a metallic finish. But I was pleasantly surprised - they did! I have used them on several products & have been greatly pleased with the end results. The ease of use is a plus. These are an excellent addition to my collection of Distress Stains.
I was hoping I could stamp ghost like images in a background. The shimmer is great and the colors nice, but as a stamping medium I did not achieve what I was looking for. I got a gloppy mess the first stamp, the second was better with no re-inking. With light inking on the stamp gave a good faded distressed image with some pigment missing. I was looking for a solid shimmery image that could be seen clearly but didn't stand out too much. I may have to try looking for another medium, like a ink pad. I won't give up on this product and will try other methods and other papers, perhaps with some experimentation I can find what I was looking for with this product. Therefore, I am neutral on this product since it could be my lack of knowledge and skills in using it to its full potential, but would not recommend it to a friend till I was more familiar with it.
