Question Ranger Acrylic daubers vs Range Distress daubers

OK folks, those of you who are experts on distress products. What is the difference between the Distress Pain daubers and the Acrylic Paint daubers. All I found out is that they are both water based and good for stamping etc. Is there any difference or are they the same thing but come in different colors? Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks,
Daria

Daria, the distress paint reacts with water just like the distress stains and ink pads.

Daria, Once the paint has dried they are no longer reactive to water. You can also use the distress paints with stamps, metal and plastic. They are nice to have if you like to play with water.

Daria, acrylic paint is not reactive to water, it is water based and cleans up with water, but you can not spray it with water and get the watermarks like the distress paints. The distress paints are just like the distress ink pads and stains except they are opaque while the ink and stain are translucent. If you are talking about just the daubers, themselves, I would have to guess and say that they are probably the same.
I hope this is what you needed.

The paint from the Distress Daubers is consistency of thin acrylic paint, but definitely acts differently. You know how acrylic dries almost immediately, and then doesn't mix or blend with anything else, and you can scrape it off with something like a credit card? The distress paint Daubers feel a lot more like art class paint from back in the day. The paint is a little slower to dry, and while it is wet, you can spray it with water to cause blending, spreading, and other effects that you can't do with acrylic. Once it dries, Ranger says it no longer reacts to being sprayed with water, unlike the distress ink. The colors are very close to the colors of the ink.

I only bought 3 colors to play with, white (which I can tint with the distress inks) blue and pink... Because I love those colors. I enjoy the white, but probably won't buy any more.

Hope this helps a little. Ranger has some YouTube videos about using them.

Mary and Linda, thanks so much for responding. I can see clearly now even tho' the paint is opaque. . Sorry, couldn't resist. But I'm sure you can you use it for resist...right? Again sorry, I'm tired and a little punchy . Your information has been very helpful. It's exactly what I was looking for.

Enjoy your day,
Daria

Daria, Yes you may use them for resist, and on another note........ you can use the distress inks for embossing. Learned that years ago from Tim Holtz himself in a class at CHA. None of us knew that.

Mary, I was just making a joke about the resist but I watched a couple of Tim Holtz's videos last night and I really get the difference now! and yes, he used them as a resist. I guess I learn better by seeing than by reading. I like the way he describes the distress paint as "inky paint". Thanks for leading me to the videos.

Enjoy your day,
Daria

Daria, you are welcome, but, Linda suggested the videos. Are you going to buy some paint? If you do, have fun. I love all of Tim Holtz's/Ranger products.
