PaperArtsy is a UK company with some very talented artists and designers. Their videos on YouTube are absolutely captivating. (Check out this video and this one.) So far SimonSaysStamp.com is the only USA company selling a good variety of the paint line (PaperArtsy also makes very cool stamps and craft materials). I started with my two favorite colors, Inky Pool and Mermaid. It's not enough!
So what's cool about these paints? First, they are highly pigmented. The paints can be watered down, mixed, layered, made into sprays, and the color stays vibrant and gorgeous. Second, the finish is a chalky, fresco finish. Why is that cool? Because it has a matte finish, it takes stamping beautifully, as well as Distress Inks. Most acrylic paints have a plastic finish and will resist any thing but oil based inks. PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint will accept Water based inks, and the options just became endless!
