Pintura is an acrylic paint with a soft shiny effect. Apply to parchment paper with a Pergamano #2 water color brush. Due to the elasticity of the paint, you can emboss perfectly after painting. The paint dries quickly. The colors can be mixed, creating a range of beautiful colors. I recommend the book, The Art of Painting, Gerti Hofman, for more information and instruction for painting with Pintura acrylic paints. CLICK ON IMAGE FOR LARGER VIEW.
