It was bound to happen. With all of the amazing glimmer-shimmer-spray-mists out there, someone had to come up with a fabulous canvas product to go with it. And thanks to Prima Marketing Inc, their Resistant Canvas pieces are an amazing compliment! There are a lot of options, but today I’m going to focus on the cutout embellishments.
Here’s how it was described on the Archiver’s Annex retail site:
PRIMA FLOWERS-Pixie Glen Collection. A paper-tale of pixies; sprites; tiny roses; and treasures; styled with a contemporary twist. Resistant canvas is ready to color with a variety of water- based coloring agents. This package includes twenty-two assorted resistant canvas pieces: 3/4×3/4 pieces up to 11-1/2×1 inch.
To tell the truth, it was hard to find a good description! So here’s mine. These are paper-backed canvas cut-out shapes that have resistant printing on them. When you apply mists, sprays, or even thinned paint, the printed area resists the ink, and a lighter design is revealed.
Here’s a closer photo of the smaller pieces I was working with- from the “LondonDerry” collection. (Which, by the way, wasn’t on the package. You can’t tell what the collections are called! Big fail, there.)
And here’s a little iPhone video to share some more info with you:
Here are my swatch tests, so you can see how the different media work on the Resistant Canvas embellishments.
BUT WAIT! You can also use non-misty things, too:
You can even thin out acrylic paints and use those, too. Get the idea? VERY FLEXIBLE!
Here are some tips/tricks to working with them:
- Do not attempt to remove the paper backing. It’s there to stabilize the weave of the canvas.
- It’s not sticky backed, anyway.
- Pieces will curl when wet.
- You can flatten them out under a phone book.
- Keep a paper towel or coffee filters handy to dab off excess to “reveal” the resist.
- Keep a misting bottle of water handy to help thin thick or opaque sprays to help them work better & let the resist shine through.
For a $5 USD price point, I’d certainly call them a “fave”- how about you?
