The Dina Wakley MEdia line is a comprehensive collection of mixed media and art journaling tools and accessories designed and curated by Ranger Signature designer, Dina Wakley. Known for her colorful, expressive style- Dina's work strikes a balance of "artsy" and "classic". The MEdia line launched in 2014 and included a core product category- Acrylic Paint. Specially formulated to Dina Wakley's specifications, MEdia Paint remains an important part of her line with its growing color palette and versatile properties.
• Paints are heavy-bodied to hold peaks and brushstrokes
• Paint can be thinned with water to be used like fluid paint and for watercolor techniques
• Paints dry to a satin, workable finish
Dina's broad palette ranges from a mix of bold, vibrant colors to rich earth tones and everything in between! Dina's love of the ocean is evident in her broad spectrum of blues and greens while succulents and the Arizona desert were the inspiration behind her latest pastel additions.
With many colors to choose from, it might be difficult to select the right color palette for your project which is why Dina created Color Confidence with Dina Wakley. Color Confidence provides you with basic color theory knowledge and the tools you need to select the perfect Dina Wakley MEdia paint colors every time!
The Dina Wakley Media Pouring Medium and Cell Creator is a system that changes the viscosity or thickness of paint so it can be poured to achieve colorful sheets, puddles, marble, and flow effects. Dina's paints are instantly transformed from a heavy bodied consistency to pourable color that floats next to each other. Dina Wakley Media Cell Creator changes the density of your paint mixtures to create isolated variations in the colors, commonly referred to as “cells” in pours. One drop of cell creator helps cell creation when colors are agitated together.
For pouring, color theory still applies. However, because the Pouring Medium prevents the paints from over mixing at first, you can use opposites together. They may turn muddy if you stir them up too much. Another important consideration for pouring is value. Value is the lightness or darkness of a color. Make sure you have both light and dark colors so your pour has maximum impact. Colors of all the same value create can create a dull pour. The Color Confidence guide can also help when selecting colors for pours.
