Finnabair's Art Wax is a beeswax-based paste, but it is different from other waxes: it is created to give you a different finish on light and dark backgrounds! When you use it on a light-colored background, you get a touch of iridescence. If you use it on a dark background, you get saturated color and a shiny surface! Try on metal, resin, glass, shiny plastic, and so many other surfaces. You can check out Riikka's two projects below to see the difference!
"Oh, how I wish you could see this project live! The photo doesn’t show the shine the waxes create on the surface of this altered cutting board! I covered the whole thing with some white gesso, then added watercolors on top. After they were completely dry, I started layering the waxes on top. I mainly worked with “Vintage Silk” and “White Gold” on this one, but mixed some other colors in there as well, just here and there. Some of the texture is created with the new Glass Beads (1.5 mm and 3 mm!" ~ Riikka Kovasin
"Finnabair waxes work on paper as well. Of course, you need to remember you are working with wax, an oily medium, so not all papers will look good, but on top of this black one, the colors really burst into life! The page is about my little goofball, my younger daughter." ~Riikka Kovasin
Finnabair's Sparks Acrylic Paint is the PERFECT paint to add sparkle and shine to your projects! These paints will jump off your projects like sparks from a fire! Add some brilliance to your projects, using Stacey and Riikka's projects for inspiration!
"I created a small Love canvas using lots of watercolour, flowers and the brand new Acrylic Paint Sparks. I used the colours Raven Black and Mermaid Sparkles. You really have to see this in person to take in the full effect. They are truly so sparkly, it's amazing!! Lovely product and I am so excited to more colours in these." ~ Stacey Young
"Oh my, oh my, oh my! I have to admit I’m totally in love with the Sparks! The consistency is smooth and you can paint so easily with them, but the shine, the shine! They really sparkle and shine! It’s not too “in your face” but a lovely, fairy-like glimmering look." ~ Riikka Kovasin
