Tim Holtz Introduces Four New Distress Crackle Paints!

Can you believe it? Just when you thought you couldn't get enough of Tim Holtz's crackle paints, he has introduced 4 new awesome colors! Three of them are metallic and one is a fabulous opaque white!

Decades of Distress in one simple step with Crackle Paint! This uniqe one-step paint that cracks as it dries, adds instant aging to cardstock, chipboard die cuts, paper mache projects and more. Apply a medium coat for fine cracks, a heavier coat for larger cracks.

The three new Metallic Distress Crackle Paints are Anitqued Bronze, Brushed Pewter, and Tarnished Brass. Note: Metallic Crackle Paints take 2-3 times longer to dry than non-metallic versions. Do not use a craft heat tool to speed drying as it will cause the paint to bubble. Just like regular Distress Crackle Paints, the metallic versions are easy-to-use, one-step crackle paints. They give a varied look based on application and they are available in 1.1 fl. oz. jars with built-in applicator brush. The difference is that these paints have a shiny, metallic finish when dry. You will soon be addicted!

The other fabulous new product is an opaque white Distress Crackle Paint called Picket Fence. You can use a craft heat tool to speed up drying on this paint. Can you even imagine the number of possibilities? I am most excited about this new color because of it's versatility.

Be sure to check these new Distress Crackle Paints out soon! They are all currently in stock and ready to be shipped out. BLOG CANDY ALERT!!!! Comment on this blog and we will draw a random.org winner next week who will receive one bottle of each of the 4 new paints mentioned above! I am already jealous of the winner!
