Painting The Town -- Creative Chemistry, Day 8

Today's lesson is all about paint.  Creative Chemistry starts off with a very interesting and informative video on Ranger's line of paint products, followed by tutorials in another video featuring the distress paint dabbers the distress stains, and the distress crackle paints. 

And once again, I learned something new.  Here are my three samples:



The first technique is dabber resist, and it was done on Claudine Hellmuth's sticky back canvas.  I used Tim's large flourish stamp.

The next tag features crackle paint resist, and I used stamps from Tim's pen and pencil set.

The final technique is called shattered stains, and it is a very impressive one.  Tim did his samples on grungeboard; mine is done on one of Wendy Vecchi's art parts.  Click on the photo for a closer look....it really does look like glass.  I attached it to an old background I'd done on a tag so I could include it with my other class samples, but I think it would make a fantastic pin.  I'm sure I'll be making lots more using this technique.

Very nicely done! I love your fish, and yes, it would make a great pin. I'm still on Day 5,but my stains and markers have been mailed (yea!) so hopefully I can get caught up.
