Playing With DecoArt Paints

I really appreciate the paints from DecoArt, they are easy to use, full of pigment yet easy to mix with different mediums. I did get a tad confused when looking to replace my current paints as there are so many different types of coverage.

Recently i purchased some of the Media paints and Mediums and also some of the Multi Surface Satin Paints, i have just ordered some more as i have been typing this blog lol.

Earlier today i was playing with ceramic and glass surfaces to see how the paint works on them.


First a base layer of Eggplant, multi surface paint.


When dry i added a layer of Interference Paint and then Seed Bead Textured Paste from Galleria.


When the texture paste was dry i added Treasure Gold over the top, it isn’t easy to see but in real life it looks fabulous.  Not too keen on the design here, just playing can design something better next time.


The ceramic hearts look great after they have dried and had the Treasure Gold added.


The middle heart shape shows what the reverse of the ceramic hearts look like.

I will be making the heart shapes into either necklaces or brooches for another swap.

Looking forward to your comments, thanks for dropping by.

  6. Really great effects! I love it. Eggplant makes a great base layer too. They will make lovely brooches.

  7. What lovely effects you've been creating... I have to say, I haven't enjoyed the multi-surface paints too much so far - maybe I need to try some more exotic surfaces! Love the gilding over the texture.
