This week I am working on collecting, organizing and labeling my Distress paint and oxide spray collections and trying to decide how far the Tim Holtz rabbit hole I want to go down. Tim Holtz is the creator of the Distress collection for Ranger. His paints are fluid acrylics that span from neutrals to bright colors. Creamy and nicely pigmented. The oxide sprays are a combination dye and pigment that oxidize when you add water meaning you can achieve some pretty cool effect and depth of color. I decided to get the full set of paint colors (60) so that I could experiment with them in my mixed media/collage work. (Also, I am trying to decide if I want to get all the oxide sprays as well.)
I am also working through Alisa Burke’s “Inky Blooms” micro class so that I can get more familiar with the properties of ink and ink painting to put in my mixed media pieces.
What are you working on this week?
