Let’s be honest – Tim Holtz and Dina Wakley stole the Ranger show for me. Between his announcement of 12 new distress colors (orchid-y purple… oh please…) to her paint tip tool… well I’m in love. I already posted about both of them (separately/previously) But WAIT! there’s more! Yes from new archival colors to more paste options Ranger has a lot. Here are my favorites.
Ranger Texture paste is excellent. Super light, very good to work with, dries fast. Now ranger introduces “transparent paste” in matte and gloss. Is this not just gel medium?! I don’t know… but I’ve pre-ordered my jars and will report back! ANY way I can get more pastes is always good in my book!
Which brings me to their texture tools. Perfect size and storage. great designs. Fantastic with paste. WONDERFUL for mixed media work. All around WIN here. Can’t wait! (yes, I’ll be sharing when I manage to get these!)
Not a must for me – because honestly I am currently overwhelmed with all the paint and ink options out there- but notable that Ranger has dye, pigment ink, and also new dabbers of paint.
Speaking of paint – there is now Dylusions paint. It’s more like a glaze/thin paint… it is interesting. I have a jar. Yes full review coming soon(ish)!
I just loved this journal cover…
Also that Dyan is doing her thing – and tapping into a trend I notice up and coming. That’s right. Skulls.
Will we see loads of them in sugar skull and other forms by Halloween? We shall see…

Stop reading my mind May, you’re freakin’ me out 😉
I saw a video of Tim demo’ing the Texture Paste with various Distress media and the first thing I thought was “I hope May uses some of that stuff in the Art Journal Class.” I can’t wait to see what you’re going to do with it. I’ve already ordered my Ranger texture tools, and I’ve got lots of other paste media in my stash, but I’m curious to see if the Ranger Texture Paste works better with the high-water-content Distress products than the stuff I already have, which seems to be made to work with regular acrylic paints.
I can’t wait to see what all you do with everything here. And can’t wait for new Distress colors. Thanks. Michelle t
I’m very excited about Dina’s tips for her paints
