January 7th, 2015

Welcome to day 3 of our CHA New Product Release week!  Today we have exciting new product additions to the Dina Wakley Media Line!

Black, Gilt, Sterling, and Penny are the exciting new color and metallic additions to the Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Acrylic Paint collection.  Mix the new Media Glazing Medium with any of the Media Heavy Body paints to add additional open time to the paints and to thin the paints to increase transparency.  You can also use the Glaze alone on mixed media projects.  Finally, we are happy to introduce Fine Tip Applicators that attach directly to tubes of Media paints!  These new applicator tips will expand your options for adding paints to your projects!
