LOVE this tool! I didn't realize there were so many options to this tool. From traditional distressing, where you distress the edge of your matts or photos (with the side of the tool) to sanding (replacing my sandpaper file) for the perfect edge and finally the bottom of the tool exposes yet ANOTHER type of distressing tool, a wire brush! Finally, it comes with another, heavier interchangable head in order to get a deeper distress. Overall, great tool!!!
I have only used it once but I am in love with this all-on-one distressing tool! This is perfect for any kind of distressing you want to do to your paper or pictures because of all the different distressing tools to chose from. I particularly like the rough grit and paper edge distressing tools to get that perfect worn look on my papers.
This is the best distressing tool I've owned. I have a battery operated distressor and an electrical distressor, both of which work well, but this Prima distressor is handy to grab, easy to use and very effective. It gets into all cracks and crevices of a project. I was skeptical at first, not needing another distressing tool, but bought it at a sale price on scrapbook.com and have loved it.
When I ordered this, I wasn't sure how much I would use it. Now I don't know how I lived without it. It is the easiest distressing tool I have ever used. I used to use the Tim Holtz distressing tool, but this one is much more ergonomic. I've found that I also enjoy using the metal brush on photos. I am so satisfied with my purchase!
I do TONS of altered composition books and other chipboard items which require TONS of sanding. I have used other products and 100s of emery boards. This is BY FAR the best tool I have used for sanding the edges of all my projects.
I did 45 altered composition books and this little tool made my work quick and easy.
