IRON ORCHID DESIGNS - NEW PAINT INLAYS
IOD Paint Inlays are the artisanal answer to decor transfers. They are not a decal; they are not a synthetic film; they are not decoupage. When you apply an IOD Paint Inlay, artisanal paint is embedded into your surface and the paper is removed, leaving an authentic painted design and a buttery, almost leather-like surface on your piece.
IOD Paint Inlays are made from a proprietary artist-quality paint which we formulated specifically for decorative use. They are organic in nature and the transfer of the painted design will be slightly varied and unique for each individual. The results are visually interesting, texturally complex, and often inherently distressed. The paint formula is 'active' until sealed, allowing you to apply special techniques or a custom touch before sealing. And if once isn't enough, you can often get a beautifully faded second (or even third!) impression with the residual pigment on your 'leftover' Paint Inlay sheets.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For best results, use a chalk-type paint that does not contain polymers. Paint Inlays can be used on fabric and even glass with a quality fabric medium or a clear medium that will adhere to glass.
