One of the most requested support for decoration, tiles (product code KTR...) are a classic for all the longtime crafters.

Versatile, ideal with many different techniques (country painting, decorative, decoupage, miniatures, and much more), with many accessories that free creativity of adult and little artists.

Stamperia proposes a terracotta tiles collection with embellishment, to create wonderflul micro worlds, with the use of colours, stencils, papers... and your imagination!

Here for you a project with warm colours and interesting effects. Download the tutorial and the model. 

Star Colour: bright effects

Today let's talk about a special colours line, thought specifically for Mixed Media: Stamperia Star Colours.

Two different colours palettes for six nuances: ancient gold, gold and silver; green, blue and red. They're acrylic colours (water based), changing and iridescent. They're perfect to give metallic glares to dark backgrounds, and particularly suitable to be used with black Modeling Paste and dark thick colours, as Vivace acrylics.

They're very creamy, the colour is concentrated: few touches applied witha brush are enough to give light and  metallic shades to your works.

You can use them on canvas, moulds, for original decorations or, as done by our teacher Monica Paruta, to create "glamour" fashion accessories.

Rub On Deco Transfer

Do you need to create an handmade special gift for a birthday, an event, or maybe for a little market… but you haven’t much time to complete your project? Or maybe, you’ve given life to a new project and you’d like to add some interesting detail to make the difference?

Stamperia Rub On Deco Transfer (DFTD...) are created to simplify the decoration process, for all the situations in which you're looking for a nice touch.

Many different designs: decorative volutes, messages, floral decorations or inspired by nature. Rub On can be applied on different surfaces (canvas, wood, ceramic, glass, etc...) with few, simple steps:

1- cut the decoration from the sheet;
2- remove the film behind and apply the  decoration on the surface;
3- press very well, if necessary, use a bone stick.
4- remove the protective film on the decoration.

That's all!

Classic Rub On are white, perfect for colorful surfaces. 
If you want a sparkly decoration (i.e., for Christmas) you can use golden Rub On.

If you want to have the opportunity to clean and wash the decorated object (i.e., a glass vase), you can apply the Wash It Finish (KE36M) on the final project: it is a special, water resistant finishing, studied for these situations.

All about Cracklé

Cracklé (or "Craquelure", the original french word) refers to a technique that reproduces the "cracks" effect on different surfaces, to create wonderful aged effects.

Cracklè can be applied on different surfaces: furniture, canvases, glass, MDF or cardboard. You can also control the final effect intensity, choosing among thin, medium or big cracks. Stamperia proposes a collection of different products to make cracklé. We want to show you all the possibilities, helping you to choose the best solution for your project:

CRACKLE' PASTE monocomponent (K3P37): the latest Stamperia Cracklé product. It is a white covering paste, perfect for Mixed Media projects. You can apply it with a spatula and you will have irregular cracks, ideal for Mix Art. Once dry, it can be coloured with water based colours, such as acrylics or Aquacolor.

THIN CRACKLE' bicomponent (KE02M): apply the first step and let it dry. Apply an abundant quantity of Step 2. You will see the effect after 4 hours at least (let it dry on air). Once dry, the product become totally transparent, creating very thin and dense cracks, that you can highlight with Patina Anticante or Lacca Scurente.

COUNTRY STYLE CRACKLE' monocomponent (KE07...):  you can apply on the rough or coloured surface, than let it dry until you see the cracks. These cracks have a "country" style, they are very marked, calling to mind an old wood effect. 

CRACKLE' MEDIUM SUPER GLOSSY (KE37M): it is bicomponent, the final result is near the Thin Cracklé effect (air drying), but a little more marked and, moreover, you will have a very glossy final surface.

GLASS CRACKLE' (KE18...): it has been projected for smooth surfaces (glass, but also plexiglass). In this case, you can quicken the drying process using an hair-drier. Cracks are marked, once dry, the product become transparent.
