Hello and welcome! I’m excited to show you what I’ve been playing with recently. There are oodles of pics in this one, so it may take a while to load. Be patient!
Mary (Remember her? She took over this blog a few months ago HERE) and I finally got out some Pebeo Fantasy paints that we’d snagged during last year’s amazing Hobby Lobby clearance. We normally wouldn’t have considered these paints otherwise, as they’re a bit pricey. But what they do is SO amazing, if you can afford it, it’s worth it!
Pebeo Fantasy Prisme paints are opalescent and reactive they develop to reveal a lacy honeycomb textured effect. The Pebeo Fantasy Moon paints are pearlescent and opaque and render a hammered and marbled effect. They are amazing to watch in action! They’re also tough on the type A personality as they develop at will and you have limited control over how they turn out. lol!
Our first session was spent mostly experimenting with colors and how they interact. I worked with Spellbinders Media Mixage hatpins and Mary worked with their charms and bezels…
The next time we got together, we put resin over our first attempts and went on to play some more with the paints and various color combinations. I used Pebeo Glazing Resin and Mary used Ice Resin. Along with the Spellbinders Media Mixage hatpins, charms and bezels, I added some Spellbinders A Gilded Life bezels and a few Tim Holtz Idea-ology Cameo Frames.
This time I waited a little too long to add the glitter and wasn’t able to mix it in as well as before because the paint had started to set. Note to self… do smaller batches! I did get a lot more done this time:
And so did Mary:
We were excited to watch them develop over time… it was fascinating! The next time we returned, out first batch was finished
In some of mine, the glazing resin turned out cloudy and/or with bubbles. I didn’t notice these at first when they were poured. Either I missed them as my head still wasn’t doing too well, or they developed later. Bummer! Learning experience!
We put resin on our second batch and this time I domed my pieces better and watched for bubbles. We were anxious to come back 3 days later and see how they turned out…
Color combo above: Pebeo Moon Turquoise and Apricot & Vitrail Glitter Medium. Topped with Pebeo Glazing Resin. A couple have a drop or two of Vitrail yellow. The Vitrail adds a nice contrast (Mary used it a lot in hers). Next time I hope to use more of it!
Here’s another cool property of these paints: Usually, if you mix green and purple (or any secondary colors), you’ll get brown. However, these colors keep to themselves (well, I dropped them it and lightly swirled them… I don’t know what they’d do if you put them in a cup and stirred.) Above: Pebeo Prisme Pearl Violine and Emerald & Vitrail Glitter Medium. Topped with Pebeo Glazing Resin.

Now Mary has oodles of new goodies for her jewelry making:
And I do, too! Yay!
I’m sure you’ll see these pop up in future projects.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope to see you again soon!
