Distress Paint - by Tim Holtz and Ranger ... Choose any 1 (one) bottle (1 fl oz, 29ml with flip cap lid) from all the colours in this wonderful range of unique water-reactive acrylic paint dries permanent on most surfaces. 

About the Distress Paints ...
The Tim Holtz Distress paints are a unique paint that behaves like watercolours and gouache paints while wet but once dry, is permanent on most surfaces including metal, glass, plastic, fabrics and all papers. Its a fantastic paint for colouring embellishments, making backgrounds and adding splash of colour to your crafts.

Distress Paints are made with a water-reactive fusion of paints and pigments that creates a splattery, bubbly watercolour effect when sprayed or wet with water or other inks. The colours are opaque and dry with a matte finish.

More Tips and Info ...
Shake well before opening the bottle.
Use these beautiful versatile paints with a brayer to apply to your favourite acrylic, rubber and foam stamps, through stencils, smoosh on craft mats and or apply direct to surfaces. Blend using ink blending tools and foams, blending brush, detailer foam tips, craft sheet, paintbrush or waterbrush.

Add a splash or spray of water to get the reactive distress bubbly look. 
Add heat embossing to the mix by sprinkling on the powder while the paint is wet, shaking off and heating gently until the powder melts (all sold separately). 

Great for colouring and altering Idea-Ology metal, embellishments, fabrics (may need a fabric medium if you want a washable design - test first). Dries permanent on most surfaces.

This product price includes 1 (one) bottle Distress Paint in the colours of your choice.
Each bottle is 1 fl oz (29ml) in size with flip top lid.
