Welcome to another Friday Road Test! We'll be giving our Road Testers new products to try out and reporting back the results and (hopefully) great experiences.
Today Jenni gets her fingers inky playing with Tim Holtz's Distress Crayons......
Distresscrayons come in a pen like tube which when applied feel like lipstick.
Very soft and creamy
They can be smeared or blended (without contaminating each other if you layer them)
They are available in 61 colours, plus Picket Fence (white) and can be used on most surfaces.
I smeared this with my finger
I am not sure if it is the weather, but it dried very quickly and I found the last ones would not blend
Then i decided to draw some on my desk and lift it with a paint brush to see the result.
How exciting is this!
Instant water color....you can make it as light or as dark as you like.....
Wow love this!
So then I got very excited and thought..,,I wonder what will happen with a stencil
The second green one I drew directly on the the stencil itself and smeared it with my finger.....perfect
Then i used a make up sponge...dabbed it on my desk and picked it up
These crayons also work on a gessoed surface
You can paint it with modge podge.....i would advise very lightly as it can move with water
I found the pen like feature enabled me to be quite precise if i wanted to be
You may use a fair bit of your crayon if u do a large surface as you apply it quite thickly
All in all I love them!
What a terrific addition to the distress range
And all our fave distress colours too
Thank you for inking with me today
