Today I have something a bit different, a product review. This will be a new feature on my blog and You Tube Channel. I think it is fun to review new products and see what is out there and how it compares to the current products.
FYI I did buy all of these paints with my own money and this is not a sponsored post.
Recently I saw this really sparkly, beautiful paints from Prima Marketing. They are called Sparks Acrylic paints from Finnabair. I love anything that sparkles so I figured this was right up my alley.
I did a swatch of all 9 colors on a black gessoed canvas board and a white gessoed canvas board just to see how they looked on each background. I have to say they are very pretty, but some looked better on the white and some looked better on the black.
The paint is a little thinner than a regular acrylic, but a little goes a long way. It is great for dry brushing and adding details and emphasis to certain areas. And it does live up to its name, it does sparkle. They are beautiful paints!
So I had to try them out on a project. I found this dragon at Goodwill (sorry I don’t have a before picture, but believe me it was ugly. It was almost every color of the rainbow, and the paint was chipping) So I added a layer of black gesso and then added the sparks paint on top. Much better, lol. The pictures don’t show all the beautiful sparkly nature of the paint, but it is there.
I think I am in love with the paint, I am glad I did purchase them and I can see using them a lot in the future.
I did a video review on them as well and you can check that out here:
What would you like me to review next? I love trying new products, it seems like there is always something new coming out
