Seth's Favorites: Now In Stock

As many of you know, I recently released my own, limited edition set of 4 paints with PaperArtsy.

Thrilled to announce that because they have been so well received, they are no longer "limited" but instead will be available on an ongoing basis.

Thrilled to also announce that my second set of 4 paints, with all new colors, will be released next month.

Many of you who have tried the paints have asked me about easily ordering the paints in the US since PaperArtsy is a UK-based company. Ask and ye shall receive. I have decided to begin to stock and sell a select grouping of their paints in my online shop.



Additional sets of favorites will be added soon.

And my own, original set of colors is also available (although it is again backordered and will ship in early December)


-------------------

I have been using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic paints for several years. They have become a go-to for me for several reasons...

1. They dry fast. As any lover of layers knows...quick drying means you can move to the next layer faster too.

2. They have a matte finish. This is good news for you journalers and mark makers - any and every pen/pencil/marker writes on the surface. No more ruined pens!

3. The paints come in a variety of opacities (Opaque, Semi-Opaque, Translucent) and are clearly labeled so you know which paint has which property.

4. There is a range of over 100 colors and that gives you a major choice.

5. And perhaps the most important reason - the names of the paint are too cool to pass up: Guacamole, Purple Rain, Smurf, Yellow Submarine, Cheesecake...

Ah Seth! Seth! Love the fact that you love these paints from our side of the pond!!!

Another huge benefit is that they have amazing coverage ( intense pigment) a little goes a long way. And also, for me this is very important, they don't crumble when crunched through a sewing machine. There's lots to love about them. I have your set, by the way.

Hooray! I'm so happy you're going to carry the PA paints. And, I love that you love color names! I do too! I've been known to buy lipstick, nail polish, paint, any thing that has a color name that strikes my fancy, based on the color name!
"Cherries in the Snow" anyone!!! (It's a Revlon color from the '50s. My mother wore that lipstick shade all the time!)
