Creative Chemistry 102: Day 1 - Distress Paints

Loved all but one of these techniques (altered surface -buttons-- didn't do well on plastic) and need to work on the industrial resist but these tags were quick and fun. The first tag on group of 4 is distress marbeling which will also be fun with art journal pages. The two flowers are rock candy crackle paint on chipboard, colored with distress paint. Overlying the paint with broken china distess stain on the bottom flower really brought out the "crackle." I love using the distress paint as a resist with stamped image (1st 2 photos) - tried using white and antique linen (vintage image) and also with walnut stain (floral) resisting with lighter colors and prefer the lighter paint for the stamped image. This class for a week is such a bargain at $25 and lifetime access!


  1. I like your resist tags as well. Though your marbling is very colorful so I like it too.
    See you in class.
