Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! I have a couple awesome mini canvases for you today, one of them bright green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂 I created them with DecoArt dimensional effects paste. The consistency of this texture paste is so interesting- it’s like pudding. For some reason, I just want to eat it out of the bottle.
It’s fascinating to me how brands of texture paste are so different from each other. I guess dimensional effects is not technically texture paste, but it’s similar. However, the dimensional effects has an opaque, shimmery quality about it.
In this first piece, I’ve also added some green acrylic paint in various shades (also DecoArt) and some white india ink among my paper pieces. I love the way the splatters of india ink and paint interact with the opaque quality of the texture paste. It’s such a cool look!

This sunset colored one, however, looks just awesome. I love the colors, obviously, but for this piece I used all india ink with the dimensional effects and quilling pieces. The liquid ink clung to the edges of the paste, really highlighting those areas and making them pop!
What do you think? Have you tried different brands of texture paste? Which brand is your favorite so far? I will confess, I see so many possibilities with this dimensional effects paste. The fact that it is opaque, with a rather elastic consistency, kind of blows my mind. I can’t wait to try some other techniques to mix it with paint, ink, etc. and see how it reacts, not to mention using it through stencils, with stamps, and who knows what else!
