Family Traditions – Configurations Book and Distress Paint

Here is a technique with the three metallic Distress Paints: Antiqued Bronze, Brushed Pewter and Tarnished Brass. Distress Paints are fluid water-based acrylic paints for multiple surfaces. The paint is designed to be reactive with water just like Distress Inks and Distress Stains. They have a convenient dabber system for easy and mess-free application. For this project I used the Configurations Book, various idea-ology Findings, charms and letters.
