DecoArt has done it again… They are always on the cutting edge of new product that is “clearly” amazing…and they now offer Modeling Paste that is CLEAR!! I love the white and black Modeling Paste that they carry. It is smooth, flexible, and paintable. I can mix colors with the base, to create a tinted paste. However, because the base is opaque, when mixing color, the hue and saturation are affected. For example, if I add red to the white base, the results are a lovely pink. If I want a true red, I need to paint after the medium dries. I always wished there was a clear paste that would make creating much more versatile.
This Modeling Paste is smooth, flexible, and paintable. Because has a transparent quality, when adding Media Fluid Acrylics, it resonates as stunning as stained glass! It can also be mixed with Americana Acrylics for a more translucent effect. Use it as a stencil paste or create stamped impressions, textured surfaces and dimensional designs. Imagine a sprinkling of clear textured snowflakes over a winter scene…gorgeous!
The medium is thick enough to spread, similar to whipped cream. I used a palette knife to spread over the stencil, a credit card would work as well.
The medium is milky in appearance when wet, but dries clear. Whatever is underneath will not be obstructed with the application of the medium, I scraped a layer of medium over a stencil for a clear effect.
I loved the way it looked, but wanted to add a tint to the medium. I put a few drops of Primary Cyan and mixed. I realized it was too strong and the results would be very dark and heavy. I lightened the mix for variety and experimentation. The hue of the paint is not diminished with the clear medium.
I spread the lighter mix over the stencil and finished with the heavier color. This clicked a few creative cells in my brain as I realized all the possibilities of adding various values of the same color.
I decided to add a layer of clear snowflakes on an old project for a little more whimsy. I loved the subtle dimension and decided I should have sprinkled a little Crystal Glamour Dust over the snowflakes while they were still wet. Wouldn’t that be beautiful?!
My mind is swimming with all the possibilities using the Clear Modeling Paste. This would look awesome over snowdrifts to add shimmery dimension!
I am planning on using this amazing medium in many of my upcoming projects. I can see it adding a wintry sparkle, Halloween enchantment, Valentine magic, Summer shimmers, or everyday charm! DecoArt Media Clear Modeling Paste is a winner!!
