Pebeo paints at The Craft Barn

Good morning all
Over at The Craft Barn this week the team has been exploring Pebeo paints. For a lot of folks these paints seem to be associated with jewellery for which they work brilliantly; but that's not all they can be used for as this week has shown.
Today it is my turn and I have used the paints on a small paper mache book/box.
I took inspiration from the movie "The Legend of The Guardians" which is all about owls. The storyline is predictable but the film itself is a visual feast! I used the paints to cover the book. The paints react beautifully and though slow to dry (especially when you use a lot!) they give a lovely shimmer and sheen to the surface.
 The owl has been done with shrink plastic. I think this stamp by IndigoBlu is gorgeous and definitely up there in my favourites pile.
 Inside the book has been painted black and I stamped the script with silver ink to really stand out before attaching the "Battle Guard" ready to be passed down by the Elder Guardian to the younger when the time comes!
I enjoyed working with these paints and will be exploring them more.

Do pop on over to The Craft Barn Blog to take a look at the rest of the teams fabulous work; it'll definitely inspire you.
