Art Journal Backgrounds with Full Colors Pump Dye Sprays and Stencils (Pump Dye com Estencils)


Let me state right now...this is really a post for Brasilians since these sprays are only sold here but I hope everyone reads and enjoys this post.

Vou te contar uma coisa agora..... Isto é para os brasileiros porque estes sprays são vendidos aqui mas eu espero que todos que ler vão curtir este post.

A few weeks ago I went to the Mega Arts and Crafts show here in São Paulo. It is the largest arts and crafts show in Latin America.  I was very excited because I had seen an ad for a company called Full Colors.  They were promoting their new sprays called Pump Dye.  Now, the sprays I always grab for my journals and backgrounds are the Dylusions sprays by the ever fabulous and delicious Dyan Reaveley.  I love love love everything about these sprays.   I love the colors, I love the way they blend, I love how they react with water...the list is endless.  But, to purchase them in the states and have them sent here is just not cost effective.  I was as hoping that these Pump Dye sprays could work for me as an alternative here.

Ha algumas semanas atras Eu fui na Mega Artesanal aqui em São Paulo. É a maior feira de artesanato da America Latina. Eu estava muito ansioso porque eu tinha visto uma cia chamada Full Collors. Eles estavam promovendo um novo spray chamado Pump Dye. Os spray que eu geralmente uso para meu journals and backgrounds são da Dylusions Sprays da Maravilhosa Dyan Reaveley. Eu adoro tudo em relação a estes spray. Eu amos as cores, eu amo a forma que eles se misturam, eu amo a reação deles com agua, a lista eh interminavel., mas importar dos Estados Unidos não vale a pena devido ao preço. Eu esperava que estes Pump dye sprays fosse ser minha alternativa aqui.

At the show I spoke to folks at Full Colors.  I explained the type of spray I wanted...one that I could use on paper....one that might blend well with each or with water.  They showed me a spray called Pump Scrap but those dried as soon as they hit the paper.  I wanted a spray that would NOT dry immediately.  I asked a lot of questions about the Pump Dye.  It is a pigment dye that is really made to be used on fabric.  Not paper.   They mentioned many times that they were NOT made for paper. 

Na feira eu falei com um representante da Full Colors. Eu expliquei que tipo de spray eu procurava. Um que poderia ser usado no papel... que misturasse bem com outras cores e com agua. Eles me mostraram um spray chamado Pump Scrap mas estes secam muito rapido, tocam o papel e pronto ta seco. Eu procurava um spray que não secasse tão rapido assim. Eu fiz muitas perguntas sobre a Pump Dye. É um tinta de pigmento e realmente feito para ser usado com tecido. Não com papel. Eles comentaram muitas vezes que eles as tintas não eram proprias para papel. 

But, after being here for a while and understanding that Brasilians do not tend to experiment when it comes to art supplies, I was determined to show them that they would be able to be used on paper.  

Mas vivendo aqui ha algum tempo eu entendo que os brasileiros não ousam experimentar e tentar coisa diferentes em se tratando de materias para artesanato, Eu estava determinado em mostrar que as tintas poderiam ser usados em papel.

So I placed an order.  And then I played. And they worked!  Now, they do not do the same things that they Dylusions do.  They do not react with water. Although they blended nicely, I did need to spray some water on them to get them to blend better.  They worked nicely with my stencils, and I am beyond happy that I have an alternative here now!!  I also love how vibrant the colors are and how nice this double spread came out.

Eu fiz uma compra, ai comecei a testar os produtos, e os sprays podem sim ser usado em papel. Os spays não fazem o memo que da Dyan Reavely. Eles não tem a mesma reação com agua mas mistura muito bem. Eu precisei borrifar mais agua para que misturasse melhor. Os sprays funcionaram muito bem com meus stencyls, e Eu estou mais do que feliz porque eu tenho uma alternativa aqui1!!!! Eu tambem adorei as cores vibrantes e com o resulatdo.

Hopefully the folks at Full Colors will see this post and see that they have a whole new market for these sprays - the mixed media/scrapbooking/artist group.  

Espero que os Representantes da Full Colors vejam este post  e enxerguem que eles tem um novo mercado prar estes sprays. O da Mixesd Media/scrapbooking/artistas.

Step by Step (Passo a Passo) -

1.  I used the Dylusions Creative Journal by Dyan Reaveley.  I started by applying a layer of Gesso to both pages and dried them with a heat gun.

Eu Usei Dylusions Creative Jounal by Dyan Reaveley. I comecei aplicando uma camada de gesso em ambas paginas e sequei com a Heat Gun.


2.  Then I applied the sprays.  First the Yellow (Amarelo 54), then some of Metallic Blue (Metalizado Azul 34), Metallic Red (Metalizado Vermelho 21), Metallic Old Gold and Gold (Metalizado Ouro Velho 57 e Metalizado Dourado 58), Metallic Silver (Metalizado Prata 66), and White (Branco 10).   When I had a bit of all the colors on the paper, I gave a spritz or two of water to let them blend a bit.  Then dried with a heat gun. 

Apliquei os sprays. Primeiro o Amarelo, depois  azul metalico, vermelho metalico, ouro metalico, ouro velho e metalizado dourado, metalico prata, e branco. Com todas as cores no papel eu dei umas duas borrifadas de agua e deixei elas se misturarem por um tempinho. Depois sequei com a heat gun.



3.  Next I used the Black spray (Preto 60) with the Circle Explosion (TCW278) stencils by The Crafter's Workshop.  Dried with heat gun.  Then I used the White spray with the Circle Fun Stencil by Mary Beth Shaw for StencilGirl Products.  Dried that with a heat gun.

Apliquei o spray preto com o stencil Circle explosion (TCW278) da The Crafter’s Workshop. Sequei com a heat gun. Depois usei o spray branco com o Stencil Circle Fun by Mary Beth Shaw da Stencil Girl products. Sequei com a heat gun.


4.  After that I used the Broken Circles stencil (L099) by Terri Stegmiller with the Metallic Blue on the right and left sides.  Dried that with the heat gun and then used the same stencil over it with the white.

Depois disso EU usei o stencil  Broken Circles by Terri Stemiller com o Azul metalico nos lado direito e esquerdo. Sequei com a Heat gun e usei o mesmo stencil com o spray branco.  


That's it.  I love how it came out.  Hope you love it too.  So, if you are a Brasilian artist that loves mixed media or art journaling, I highly recommend that you check out the Pump Dye sprays by Full Colors!!

Pronto. Eu amei o resultado. Espero que vc tambem tenha gostado.Se vc eh um artista/artesão brasileiro e ama mixed media e journaling, Eu recomendo que vc experimente as Pump dye by full colors!!!
