Tim Holtz Distress Paints are mixed media water-soluble paints designed by Tim Holtz and manufactured by Ranger.
Distress Paint is a waterbased acrylic paint that at times, acts like watercolour while its still wet then dries permanent on almost all surfaces. Tim calls it water reactive - a bit of water splattered on its surface creates amazing droplets and 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, that 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.
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.
