I'm so delighted to be able to share my friend Dina's new paints and brushes with you!
These are acrylic paints that come in convenient little tubes. They come in a wide range of colors, and the line includes white and black gesso, and gel medium. The brushes are long handled synthetic bristle brushes.
Playing with the paints was lots of fun. They dry very matte and chalky, which is great for art journaling (pages won't stick together). They have a very long open time (I left some out on my palette, went to dinner, and when I came back they were still wet and usable). They work great for stenciling. They're a little on the translucent side, which can be good and bad, depending on what the effect is y0u're going for. The brushes are nice and stiff, which is great for brushing paint through stencils with large openings. All in all, I'm very pleased to add them to my creative stash!
