I am SO glad that Tim Holtz and Ranger devloped the Distress Paint dabbers! These paints are very fluid acrylic paints that can be used on multiple surfaces. Tim and Ranger developed these special paints to be reactive with water just like Distress Inks and Distress Stains—perfect to accomplish a wide variety of creative techniques.
Here's one of my favorite methods for creating backgrounds on tags, cards, etc. using the Distress Paints:
- Dab a few colors of paint dabbers directly onto craft sheet.
- Spritz paint with water.
- Run tag (or cardstock) through paints.
- Turn over and let dry.
- Stamp image on tag.
Here's a sample:
