Tim Holtz Distress Paint - Information and Shop Update


I'm aiming to have all the treasures in my shop to have FREE postage (Australia wide) enabled... I'm slowly getting there. I'd say about half is marked as free postage by now :)

Today, I've updated all the Tim Holtz Distress Paints to show what's in stock, what's out of stock and how many of each :) Plus, you'll notice that when you add these to the shopping cart, you won't get charged extra postage unless you choose Express. Marvellous!

With that fab news, I'll move on to adding the few colours that are missing but in stock - Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Ground Espresso, Carved Pumpkin, Lucky Clover and Candied Apple.

Distress Paint is designed by Tim Holtz and manufactured by Ranger.

Distress Paint is a waterbased acrylic paint that at times, acts like watercolour. Tim calls it water reactive - a bit of water splattered on its surface creates amazing textures! 

Its a fluid paint, able to adhere to most surfaces, permanent when dry and once dry (allow at least 24 hours) it can be doodled over with your favourite marker - Fudeball, Sharpie, Graphik, just to name a few :)

Originally created with a sponge dauber top and screw on lid, it is fantastic for quick backgrounds or large areas. Once dry, spatter with a sprinkling of water and watch the magical bubbles appear! Love it :) Ranger have designed a new lid for all the Distress Paint bottles - a flip top lid. And soon, you'll be able to buy the bottle with the flip top instead of the sponge dauber.

To look after your sponge daubers, simply spritz with Distress Ink Refresher after your day of painting. This will help stop the sponge from drying out.

If you need more information about these paints or questions about anything else arty, write to me anytime and I'll help you.

Happy Creative Day!
