OK - so Viva Decor is not new, but wow do they make some amazing products which are creeping into the world of papercrafts, allowing some stunning projects to be created in the areas of scrapbooking, OTP, card making and journaling. After seeing some of the products in person, our store owner couldn't help herself and bought quite a few lol - you can find the Viva products we have on the P4P shop site!
Now I grabbed a few of these to play with and my favourites so far are:
- Viva Decor Inka Gold - Silver
- Viva Decor Pearl Pen - Ice White
- Viva Decor Glitter Liner - Holographic Iridescent
So let me tell you a little about each of these amazing products, because I've never seen anything exactly like these before and am really impressed.
Viva's Pearl Pens are: dimensional gel pens that are specially formulated to create perfectly round, non-settling pearls. With the fine control applicator tip, making a wide range of different sized pearls is a snap! Pearl Pens can be used on virtually all surfaces, excellent for fabric, paper crafting and home decor accents. Pearl pen is water-based and non-toxic.
I've been using the pearl pens for a while and hands down the Ice White is my favourite. Now while it doesn't say this on the bottle, I'm getting the best results after giving the contents a little shake before using - this seems to mix the paint and I get better 'pearls'.
I couldn't resist the Holographic Irridescent version of this pen - oh la la - so sparkly! Unlike the Pearl Pen, the glitter liner is not raised once dry, but it does look amazingly glorious and adds a jewel like sparkle to whatever is underneath - I can't wait to try it on fairy wings and on some painted chipboard. Viva Decor’s Glitter Liner is known for its non-settling, high glitter content and its exceptional dimensional finish. Glitter Liner dries to a jewel-like quality with an endless shimmer and brilliant gloss finish. Glitter Liner can be used on virtually any surface to add sparkle and dimension to all your craft projects. Glitter Liner is water-based and non-toxic.
The other product I couldn't go home without was the
Viva Decor’s Inka Gold is a revolutionary product that produces an amazing metallic finish without any toxic chemicals. With beeswax as one of the main ingredients, Inka Gold is safe and easy to use in all crafting and home decor projects. Just rub it on and polish! One jar of Inka Gold can cover up to 80 square ft. Excellent for refinishing or accenting furniture. Also great for paper mache boxes, chipboard, paper crafting and much more.
You'll need to stay tuned, as I'm planning to use some of these on a really Off-The-Page project!
Back wih more soon,
