BACK TO BASICS: MINC Reactive Paint-A Tutorial

BACK TO BASICS TUTORIAL HEIDI SWAPP MINC REACTIVE PAINT I @lindsaybateman for @heidiswapp

Hi everyone!  Today I am VERY excited to share one of my most favourite MINC products that made it’s official debut back at CHA 2016 this past January.  It is one of the brand new MINC reactive mediums: MINC Reactive Paint!

Yes…you heard me right, paint!  Basically, you can now apply this medium with a paint brush to your project, run it through the MINC machine with any colour of MINC foil and voila!  Mixed media foiled paint.  Amazing, right?!?

However, today I want to share just how incredible this medium can be when used alongside foam stamps with a quick video tutorial.  The foam stamps that I am using (both in the video and on my project) are now available at Michaels.  They are a brand new Heidi Swapp product from her Gallery Wall collection.  I love them.  Actually, I am obsessed with them.

They are such a fun and simple way to apply bold text to so many things. The 2 fonts are adorable and when paired up with the reactive paint? Well….just see for yourself!  In the video, I will be doing a simple demonstration on how to apply the Minc Reactive Paint to the stamps, how to then apply the stamps and finally how to achieve beautiful foiled stamped results by using the MINC machine.

So gorgeous right? And simple.  Got to love that!

I used this technique to create a gorgeous foiled title for one of my recent scrapbook layouts.  I used both sets of the stamps.  You can definitely see they are amazing to mix and match when creating bold titles for your pages.  Especially when you are wanting to make an impact!

I then paired this title with some of my recent favourite Instax photos and embellished with stash favourites from the Heidi Swapp Instax collection such as stickers, word strips, washi photo frames etc.

I love how gorgeous the holographic MINC foil looks.  I really wish you could see this page live to really get the full effect of this beautiful colour of foil.  It may just be my new favourite 😉

You can see how beautifully the MINC Reactive Paint takes the foil.  I love how the impressions create a very mixed media/distressed look.  Perfectly imperfect.  It is such a wonderful medium to play and experiment with.  My head is swimming with creative possibilities!  How about you?
