painting with pearls

What????  Ranger's DIMENSIONAL PEARLS that is!  There are several colors in the product collection, and i used TERRA COTTA on this project. 

Ranger also just released new colors in the LIQUID PEARLS line, and i can't wait to try them with this technique.   This creamy, thick pearlescent paint has a ultra thin tip perfect for drawing lines. I drew these journal pages with the pearls first and let it dry overnite.  When completely dry i was able to go in with watercolors and color the images.  Great dimensions, it's like a coloring book with raised lines!  I have a whole batch more drying today, and will share when they are done.  This technique is be great for your own custom embellishments, cards, journal pages, etc.
