Tim Holtz Paint Dabber Resist Technique!


Hello Everybody! Are you ready to get inky again? I wanted to share another Tim Holtz Technique Video again today. This one is an "oldie but a goodie", it's Paint Dabber Resist - my absolute favorite technique! I just love the results and it is soooo easy - right up my alley!

This video features the Adirondack Paint Dabbers made by Ranger. They are perfect for so many projects and work on any surface (paper, metal, fabric - they are washable!, grungeboard, grungepaper, and chipboard). They come in convenient one ounce dabber bottles so you can use direct to surface, or open the top to paint with a brush. I mentioned that this was my favorite Tim Holtz technique, so I also have a "go to" color that I use - the PEARL! The results are just stunning - trust me!

Here is a list of other supplies you might need when using this fabulously addicting technique!
- Ranger Inkssentials Craft Sheet

  7. Lately I have been watching all the Tim Holtz videos so it was kind of ironic when I saw this post because I just watched that video this week! I must say my favorite though is where he uses the glossy cardstock, alcohol inks and canned air! OH MY! It sure is fun! :)

  9. He has so many awesome techniques, it's hard to choose just one.

    I love making backgrounds using several colors distress ink "stamped" on a craft sheet then mist with water & perfect pearl and "smoosh" paper over the top.

    Alchol inks and glossy paper makes awesome backgrounds too!

    Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  10. I've recreated some background paper using his demo for a simple background technique using distress inks and the blending tool. Why buy paper when you can so easily create your own!

  11. My favorite technique is the wrinkle free distress, you put inks and water on a craft sheet and sweep a piece on the mix, love that messy technique!! =)

  12. As said many times before me, it' so hard to pick just one! But I love the distress inks. I can use them in so many different ways :)

    ReplyDelete

    My fav ist distressing....

  15. My favorite technique are those using the distress embossing powder. Actually I can't choose, I love them all. I would have to say that I do a lot of inking so distressing the edges with vintage photo distress ink is what I use the most.

    Also I received the tissue tape today in the mail. Thank you everyone at Simonsaysstamp and what are the odds of me winning this awesome goody? Probably none to zero, but you never know right? :) Thank you.

  16. I'm definitely a fan of the Distress Inks, I create backgrounds misting with water & stamping on top with the same colour & edge everything I can with cut 'n dry & Distress Ink, & sponge with them. I've not mastered the watercolouring yet but love the effects.

  17. I enjoyed watching that, Distressing is my top technique but another favourite at the moment is to use clear rock candy, so gorgeous.
    Happy crafting

  18. Wonderful video and wonderful giveaway too! I love using Tim's Distress Inks for tone on tone stamping by applying the ink with the foam applicator to create my background and then stamp an image over top using the same color.
    Thanks for the chance. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I ABSOLUTELY Love all of Tim's techniques, but the one I use the most is the basic distressing one, with blending the inks.

    Another favorite is applying distress ink onto a craft sheet, misting it and then have your paper/tag or whatever "kiss it" and then heat set it. Makes awesome looking backgrounds! It mimics watercolors. Thank you for the chance to win such awesome goodies.

  20. Love me some Tim I could just watch him all day Ha... any hoot.. I am a Distress addict there I said it and feel better. My projects are not done unless I have added a little distress into the mix. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Too many favorite techniques from T!M, but my current project awaiting is to use various circles of the brightly colored dabber paints, then stamp and emboss in black over the top, with a roses stamp image! Think Watermelon, Raspberry and Sunset Orange!

  22. I love, love, love Distress Ink so it would have to be distressing. I have a stack of tags and I can't stop making them.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the embossed layer resist technique, which Tim showed on one of his monthly technique challenges back in 2008. It's awesome. And very similar to the technique posted here. But, Tim's techniques are all great, aren't they? lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. The only Tim Holtz products I have are distress inks, so I have to say they would be my favourite. Unless of course I win these amazing paint dabbers, and then they may be my favourite!!
    What an amazing chap he is - loved his video, and thanks for the chance to win

    ReplyDelete
  25. No question, using the distress technique is my fave. Looking forward to trying out other techniques!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would have to say using Crackle paint on grungeboard.

    ReplyDelete
  27. What an awesome giveaway! Let's just say there isn't anything I dislike about Tim's products. My fav are distress inks used in combination with the ditress tool.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love many of TH techniques. It is very hard to choose only one. But the most often I use distress inks to create background - using mini misters and foam application tool. The possibilities are endless.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love working with alcohol inks and embossing powder. I just adore the combination.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Using the distress inks with the blending tool for backgrounds is so addictive and is my favorite. But, I have Tim's new book and am going to try some of the other cool ideas he has, too!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow, fabulous as always. All of Tim's techniques are amazing. It is really hard to pick but I am leaning towards the alcohol inks. I love the effect you can come up with these on glossy paper to create wonderful backgrounds.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Faux rust is lots of fun! My neighbor and I try to outrust each other with inside and outside adornments. Now I can one-up her because she doesn't know how easy it is to recreate your own rusty stuff using most anything! Yahoo!

  33. I love distressing with distress ink pads.
    Hugs, Sandra

  34. it's GOTTA be the grunge paper roses! the man is just pure genius, but these babies are the most gorgeous thing in crafts!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks for that Tim Holtz video. I LOVE Tim's teaching videos. It's hard to pick a fav but one of my faves is the alcohol ink background. I make several at one time and then use them on cards. I also love the resist technique...all of it is GREAT!!!
    Thanks again,
    e

  36. I just started watching his You Tube vids too! I love all of his techniques - makes me want to get out of my comfy box and try something new! I LOVE distress ink! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love emboss resist...really any thing with embossing powder or ink. His distress ink pads are my favorite inks. Great colors, wet pads, great size!

    ReplyDelete
  38. My favourite technique is the inks on glossy card stock and use a can of air for a splash effect. It is super cool.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's really hard to name one favorite Tim Holtz technique, but Perfect Peals looked very interesting :P

  41. How could I pick just one?
    I'll go with distressing

  42. Thanks for the awesome video. I use the Distress inks a lot, but these Paint Dabbers are something I must check out. The Grunge Paper is a fun thing too. Tim Holtz !! WOW!!! Thanks for the chance to win.

  43. I am a Distress Ink person. I think I have all the colors except for 3 of them that I couldn’t find in the stores I usually go to. My favorite way of using them is to blend 2-3 coordinating colors onto a piece of cardstock (I use make-up sponges because the ink blending tool that Tim uses is so expensive!) to make a nice vintage background, then I rip the edges, revealing the ivory or cream cardstock underneath, to make a distressed look.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thanks for the video and the contest! :) I think my favorite technique is using the alcohol inks, because the colors are so vibrant!

    ReplyDelete
  45. i dont know if this counts as a tim holtz technique, because the products are in the ideology and inkessentials line, and not the tim holtz line. i like arranging pressed flowers on an ideology fragment, then sealing it in place with the inkessentials glossy accent, then using the piece as an embellishment on my cards

    ReplyDelete
  46. Am I too late to enter???
    I’ve been considering buying the paint dabbers, so thanks for the video! At least if I win, I’ll get to try out some products before I commit to buying them. My favorite technique is embossing with the Distress embossing powders.
