As a Finnabair Ambassador I get to try out some of Anna's new products as soon as they are released.
I love acrylic paint ..........and Finnabair's art alchemy METALLIQUE acrylic paint is beautiful and different.
I love to work in art journals, and I like to create a lot of different surfaces and many layers but without bulk. So, being able to use different paint "finishes" from very matte and chalky (PaperArtsy Fresco Finish ) to high gloss super shiny (Finnabair's art alchemy SPARKS) is essential, and the METALLIQUE paints are somewhere in between with a soft, metallic glow.
Texture is also important, and again I like it to be subtle without too much bulk and without making the page too heavy. Finnabair's new art basics PLASTER PASTE is perfect. Very white with a soft, smooth, chalky finish and very light weight. It is super thick, so if you wanted to add height and dimension you easily could. It can also be lightly sanded back, and accepts paint beautifully.
I've called this mixed media collage "The Face Lift" my little dig at how superficial "appearances" are.
Beautiful colours in Finnabair Metallique paints.
Great soft, white chalky texture on any surface with Finnabair art basics Plaster Paste.
