Loving the new Deco Art/American Premium acrylic paints
Posted Jul 10, 2017

Deco art/ Americana has a new line of premium acrylics out and I love them. They are thick, creamy and vibrant. They work well with a palette knife or brush work. Great for stenciling too!

They are just an all around quality paint for everyday creating.

In this project I show you how well they work when creating a beautiful grungy floral.

You can check out all the paints and mediums HERE on the Deco Art blog.

Enjoy the video.

Premium acrylics (Quinacridone Magenta, Phthalo Green Yellow, Green Gold,  Burnts Sienna, Carbon black, Prussian Blue, Phthalo Turquoise, Cadmium Red Hue, Pyrole  Red, Quinacridone Violet, Quinacridone Gold Hue, Burnt Umber, Paynes Grey), Palette knife, assorted brushes, charcoal pencil

Hello there! I’m Shawn Petite

I’ve been teaching and creating for well over 25 years. About 15 years ago I found my art soul mate in mixed media, and it changed my life! I love the story that can be told by combining paint, texture, ink, paper and—really anything that you can imagine.

But what I’m truly passionate about is being your guide, walking with you step by step and helping you become your own hero in your creative journey.

Along my path, I’ve learned that the creating art also creates a healing space. Life can be messy and complicated and painful, but something about a paint brush can help heal your soul. I believe—no, I know—you are worthy of love, and I want to teach you to know that about yourself. Join me on this journey of art and inspiration!
