Have you ever used Allure Dimensional Adhesive Paint? No? Me neither! I was in the craft store the other day (shocking, I know) when I came across a bin of Allure Dimensional Paint Pens. I love to try out products that I have never used before…so of course, I had to buy a few tubes. Just so you know, Allure is a permanent, multi-dimensional paint that is made from pure pigments. It is acid free, will retain its shape and is washer/dryer safe. It comes in many colors including pink, apple green, chocolate, ivory, pumpkin and fuchsia…just to name a few. Along with different colors, it is also available in different variations such as gloss, satin and metallic.
I usually have a certain project in mind when I buy a new craft product. I just don’t buy stuff for the sake of buying (ok, I’ll admit, that has happened…but not often!). The first thing that came to mind when I saw the bin of paint pens was GINGERBREAD MEN!!! Yep, I absolutely LOVE to paint gingerbread men. Gingerbread men are craft show best sellers so I paint them throughout the year. For some reason, they just make me happy. I know, I’m a goofball. Anyway, I can’t wait to paint some gingerbread Christmas ornaments and use the Allure Dimensional Paint to create icing. The paint should make the cookies look realistic while adding some dimension. I have used puffy type paints in the past to create cookie icing but I have never been 100% happy with the outcome. The paint either spreads out to much or once dry, loses its shape. Once I paint a few gingerbread men, I will let you know how they turn out (and of course, I will share a few pictures). Wish me luck!
If you want to find out more about this cool paint product, please visit ECLECTIC! They make all kinds of cool stuff (including the Allure Paint Pens). They also have a page full of project ideas (some of which would be great for kids). Have you ever used dimensional paint? If so, what did you make and what type did you use? I’d love to hear from you. Well, that’s it for now. As always, thanks for stopping by. Happy Crafting!
PS: Below are some gingerbread crafts that I painted and sold at craft shows. I Can’t wait to try the Allure paint on my next gingerbread project!
