I am in the middle of deciding what to keep from my craft studio and what will not still be good after a year ( we hope to go back to Europe early next year) . I came across some Pebeo Prisme paints that I bought at Micheals last year. Since I do not think they will last a year in a storage place I decided to try them out. I took some mini composition books and a brush and had fun painting and dropping different colors on the covers. Then I held them at different angles and let the colors mixed. It made a thick marbling effect. I took a toothpick and swirled them around a bit and left them to dry. It takes 72 hours for the paint to completely dry and I think you should dry them in a well ventilated room.
When the covers dry, the thick paint makes a honey comb design ( you have to have a thick layer of paint to get this effect). The paint dries glossy and the colors are brilliant. In person, it has a 3D effect, that is not captured well in the photos. I put it on paper and tags too. From the first photo you can see the thick dripping effect. You are supposed to clean the brush with mineral spirits but I had none. I just rinsed by brush in water and wiped it clean on a cloth between colors.
I really like the effects and the way you cannot predict how it will look when it dries. I thought I would share my experiences with you. If you have experimented with this paint please share your experiences in the comment section. When we return from our trip I will purchase some more of these paints to play with. Happy creating.
