[NOTE: The below section has been edited – our initial video posting was incorrect!]

We recently had a chance at the Society of Decorative Painters Convention in San Diego to meet with the folks at DecoArt and really gush over their products! There we met Susie Wolfe and we had a chance to catch her in action demonstrating our very own Stampendous Stack Art Stamps and DecoArt’s Media Fluid Acrylics! Susie showed us how easy it is to create mixed media surfaces with these terrific products.

Check out a video of Susie’s great idea for using the transparency of the new Media Fluid Acrylics to create a stunning color wash! –

 

 

Noreen Burgess of Just Us showed us how she uses the Stampendous Creative Palette as a practice pad for decorative painting strokes. Just one more way the Creative Palette makes it easier for  painters to get to the fun parts of painting.  She’s using a practice sheet created by herself and partner Helen Stadter of Just For You. These ladies hand paint each practice sheet and sell them at SDP events.

Here’s the corrected video showing Noreen demonstrating this great idea! –

DecoArt is sending three sets of their  Media Fluid Acrylics, Princeton Artist Brushes via inspired by Willow Wolfe is donating Select 3750 Brushes and some Catalyst Wedges, and we’ll be adding a Stampendous Creative Palette so you can practice all the techniques you’ll see this week.  We’ll be sending three prize packages to commenters with U.S. Mailing Addresses, and DecoArt will be sending three generous sample packages to international commenters, so all our friends can play.

Paint and Stamps – Together At Last!

2014_06_decoart

We’re using terrific products from our generous friends at DecoArt and Princeton Artist Brushes, via inspired by Willow Wolfe,  this week to show you that “if it will sit still long enough, you can paint it and stamp it!” If you’re just joining us, don’t miss the great inspiration from Monday’s Post and Tuesday’s Post.

Artists from DecoArt’s International Design Team are joining the Stampendous team to create some astonishing inspiration for you. Prepare to be amazed!

Of course, there are PRIZES! DecoArt is sending sets of their  Media Fluid Acrylics, we’ll be adding a Stampendous Creative Palette, and Decorative Painter Willow Wolfe has persuaded Princeton Artist Brushes to donate some Select 3750 Brushes and a Catalyst Wedge to each prize package. We’ll mail three prize packages to commenters with U.S. Mailing Addresses, and Deco Art will mail three sample packages to international commenters so all of our friends can play!

Here’s a terrific project created by our Design Team Member Janelle Stollfus. She used “layers and layers” of paint on this plaque to get that incredibly deep background. She stamped the face on tissue and colored ahead of time to make application easy. The hair is ribbon and found items. LOVE IT!!

Back from NAMTA!

The National Art Materials Trade Association Show was last week in Pittsburgh, and this year they invited the manufacturers from the Craft And Hobby Association to have booths there as well. We hope this is going to lead to more and more collaboration between traditional art materials suppliers and craft materials suppliers. You have loved the collaborations we’ve done with folks like DecoArt, Faber-Castell, Tombow, STAEDTLER and others. We are excited to keep bringing you ever more uses for your art supplies in your crafting and vice versa!

Stampendous had a booth, and our own Fran Seiford was there demonstrating our Creative Palette and how to use lots of terrific products like Princeton Brushes’ new Catalyst wedges, favorites of Designer Willow Wolfe,  to add texture and pattern with DecoArt Acrylic paints on the Creative Palette.

We also had the effervescent and enthusiastic Nathalie Kalbach demonstrating in our booth with her exclusive Stampendous stamps! These stamps have been so fantastically popular ever since we released them in January that we have a very hard time keeping them in stock! No wonder since Nathalie has been all over the world from New York, to Canada, to Malaysia and beyond demonstrating and teaching her fun and funny classes with them! If you’ve never had a chance to take a class with Nathalie, you should definitely check out the schedule on her website. They are fantastic!

We’re excited that CHA and NAMTA have joined forces to help us forge new collaborations in the art materials world. Good things are coming!! Stay Tuned!
