Hello there, today I’m sharing about the Arteza Iridescent Acrylic Paints a new fav in my craft room!

Tools or Applicators
Arteza Iridescent paints can be applied using a palette knife or different brushes to create textures.
For a smooth finish, I like to use super soft brushes y Jane Davenport that are like makeup brushes.
DIY Coloured Cardstock
- To create my own shimmery DIY cardstock, I like to apply the paint over Arteza Acrylic Paper. [Available at Arteza UK or Arteza USA ]
- The paper is really beautiful and add a sophisticated look and feel to papercraft projects.
- Arteza Acrylic paper is heavyweight – Cold-pressed, linen-textured designed to withstand many washes without damage.
- It looks like a canvas on the front panel of your cards.
- It is also Fade-Resistant. Each 100% acid-free sheet preserves the vibrancy of your artwork.
In the cards below you can have a better idea of the look and feel of the die-cut made out of painted acrylic paper.

As the Arteza Iridescent Acrylic Paints are thick and a little bit sticky I had the idea to add gold leaf flakes or gilding flakes to create a new texture.
That’s how this marbleized paper was born.
To make it I used photo paper + Fairy Tale and Royal Purple Iridescent paints +Nuvo Gilding Flakes.
- I applied a little bit of Fairy Tale and Royal Purple ARTEZA Iridescent Acrylic Paints over the glass mat and I diluted them with water ( I also mixed them a little bit)
- Then, I placed the glossy side of affordable high gloss photo paper over the paint ( smooching technique)
- Next, I added Gilding Flakes over the paper while the paint was still wet ( As the paint is tick and a little bit sticky the flakes will stick to it)
- Once the paper was dry ( next day), I used a Nuvo Sweep Brush to remove the eccess gilding flakes.
Supplies Used to make this Project:
- High Gloss Photo paper ( from poundland)

I also wanted to try to do some detailed stencilling using the iridescent paints. Nailed it.
4 and 5 ideaS
ombre bacgrounds + altering other mediums colours
I also wanted to create an ombre background by fully covering a piece of acrylic paper and using 2 or 3 different paints colours.
For the card above I used 2 paint colours ( Fairy Tale and Royal Purple).
[You can see how I did this at minute 9:37 in the video here]
For this card, I also applied Distress Inks over the paint to alter its appearance providing you with extra ideas to combine different mediums.
Additionally, to this, I also wanted to give you an idea to alter the colours of different mediums using these paints.
In the video here at minute 10:32 you can see how easy is to mix the paint to crackle paste to alter its colour. You can do this with water-based products or any other medium prior to their application.
You can also add shine and shimmer to any coloured composition by applying a fine coat of the paints over.
