Miami Utrecht 15 Year Celebration with Pebeo Paints

CONGRATULATIONS to the Miami Utrecht / Dick Blick Art Supply store for celebrating their 15th anniversary yesterday with special discounts and activities for store customers. According to store manager, Corinna Burrough, the Pebeo Paints demo I gave by far had the largest group of inquisitive artists in attendance! And, boy, did we have some fun!!!

Folks were excited to see the NEW Pebeo Liquid Art Panels and how the Pebeo Fantasy Prisme (honeycomb effect), Fantasy Moon (pounded metal effect), Vitrail (stained glass effect) and colored Resin paints are used to make poured paintings in the panels. I also introduced the beautiful shimmery Dyna Acrylic paints, bright Florescent Acrylic paints and the Pebeo specialty mediums (like my personal favorite, the clear / black / red / yellow sand Texture Gel).

The Cerne Relief outliner dimensional paints got a nod of understanding when I explained they can be used to create custom raised designs on any surface that can then be filled with the liquid Pebeo paints. And, at the end of the presentation the Ohh's and Ahh's came out when the artists saw how easy the Pebeo Metal Effect Leaves are to use on sticky Mixtion Guilding Paste.

I'd like to give a HUGE Thank You to all who attended, including some of my favorite students! ;)
