Smile Viva decor Inka Gold or 3d Stamp paint?

have only just come across these products on some online tutorials. it seems hard to find out any main differences but I love the metallic look they get with the Inka Gold. I am wanting to use on card stock mainly, for backgrounds with stamping or dry embossing. any ideas which one would be the better to start with? and any favourite color combinations?

Check Joggles.com. I think she has videos on at least the Viva Inka. I have been temped to buy some. She also has fast shipping if you buy anything from her. Prices are always at least 15% off and there is a sale on some other stuff until tomorrow I think.

edit: I just checked and she does have an inka gold video under tutorials. Didn't see a 3d stamp paint video but it could be there. I did see that she sells Luminiere 3D but don't know if it's stamp paint.

I haven't used Inka Gold but I have several of the 3-D paints. I saw a demo at a Scrapbook Expo by Hearfelt creations, bought a couple to play with and then bought several more colors from Franticstamper.com. I don't have a fav color combination but I like Carmine, walnut brown, and moss green.

video

IMHO here are some pros & cons:

Pros: beautiful colors; has a pebbly finish when dry; a little goes a long way; dries fast; blends easily

Cons: dries fast so you have to work quickly; if you apply heavily it can warp the paper a bit; a little pricey; rinse out your sponges as soon as your finished as it dries hard; washes off hands easily.

I love the 3-D paint but I suggest getting a couple of colors to play to determine if you like it. Everything I've used it on has gotten rave reviews.

Goodness, they're such different products! The Inka-Gold is wax-based, and somewhat dry and hard but easily spread with a finger or soft cloth to highlight raised or textured areas on your piece. The 3D paints are... paints, and would have lots of applications, from stamping to stenciling and brushing, etc. Seems like they'd work well together.

Please help anyone?
I have been searching for Viva Decor Stamp Paints but they are sure hard to find anymore. Are they discontinued? Even more importantly, which liquid soluble product might I add to the Viva Decor Inka gold / other colors to soften them up? They are sure harder than what I would like to use them for. I LOVE the seemingly effortless way the Stamp Paints glide and blend together from watching tutorials. Since the Viva Stamp Paints aka Stempel are hard to find and so blooming expensive, I have been looking everywhere (Joann's carries the copper, HeartFelt Creations and Scrapbooking Made Simple carry some but they're like $9 or $10 for one color, and a few other places may sell one or two colors).

I've tried Dick Blicks, Walmart online, Joann's, Create for Less, well, the list goes on and on. So to save money and make a product I have more usable, could I perhaps add something to Viva Decor gold pots like.... glycerin or a different product which would make them more like paint for paper/cards? {Please find a way for me to do this}. I just hate learning about "new" products too late, and then can't find them or the few I find are just too expensive. HUGE AND MANY THANKS to you!!!!!!!! Rosy ♥

Franticstamper.com still has a few colors for $6.99.

Most of my pots are drying up and I've decided that I'm not buying any more Viva Décor products because everything I've bought dried up way to fast.

Since they are water based products I just add water to a small amount to soften it. I only soften what I need instead of the entire pot because I figure it will just dry out again. Not much of a solution - but it's what I do.

It's such a shame that these dry out so fast because the effect is beautiful.

Here are a few...
3D STAMP PAINT
3D Stamp Paint by Viva Decor (I got some Inka from them)

The Viva US website is no more but the German site is still open, so they do still exist... if you wanted them badly enough to buy internationally...

MyDecoWorld

I bought a bunch of Inka Gold after the legal kerfuffle earlier this year...
Is that what you're wanting to paint with? I was under the impression that it was wax based...? but I could be wrong there.

Have you tried other metallic paints, like the Lumiere? Those are beautiful shimmery acrylics.
Jacquard Lumiere Acrylics - BLICK art materials
The Exciter Pack is a great little sampler at a nice price.

Thank you so much ladies. I have tried the only other metallic acrylic paints I have, Martha Stewart. I tried to blend two colors on smooth matte cardstock but they just would not blend and pilled up the cardstock. Maybe if I try on glossy. The other thought was since I can't find a big stock of the Viva Decor stamp paints (I checked with Frantic Stamper and they have 2 black, 1 moss $8/each) perhaps I can try the smaller kits of Twinkling H2Os. They appear to be smooth, after adding a bit of water first. Again, thanks so much! You all are fasssst on the keyboard to answer my pleas - appreciate it !!!!

Try finding CraftT luster and metallic rub-ons. They are similar to the Inka gold; I've had mine for years and years and they don't dry out. I just managed to find two sets on Amazon.co.uk, shipped free to the UK from Amazon.com, and on sale. With the remnants of a gift voucher, all it's costing me is the onward delivery from a UK address .
http://www.amazon.com/Metallic-Paint...craftT+rub-ons
There are four different sets. I'm scraping the bottom of most of the colours in my current set.
On a slick surface I usually spray with fixative, but it doesn't seem to need it on my multi-media stuff.
Treasure Gold Wax is similar too - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPZ2N9R1Svo.
DH is looking over my shoulder and says "Hey, we used to sell that". Too right ~ and if I'd known I'd want it now, I'd have bought it at staff discount when I could!! It comes in a range of colours. It has a much stronger smell and is very hard to clean off stencils. But I don't have any issues with it drying out either.

I saw a youtube video and I wish I could remember whose it was to give credit here. To soften up her pot of Viva Décor inka gold, she put a folded up baby wipe in the pot and left it in there for a few days. I tried it myself and it did help a little bit, so now I just keep a baby wipe in the pot. It doesn't get moldy or anything so no worry about that. It really doesn't soften the Inka gold enough to "paint" consistency, but it will spread more easily with your finger or a sponge.

Hope this helps.

Joann's sells it for $7.99 right now - but it's available online ONLY: http://tinyurl.com/p7brq6w

The good thing about Amazon is the 50% off one regular priced item coupon for this week.

Amazon has it for about $8.65

My post is mistaken, I'm sorry as I can't fix it. It should say that JOANN'S has a 50% coupon code. It's right on their website. Sadly you can't use the code AND the one for shipping in the same transaction.

Dini, you mentioned a "legal kerfuffle". did that have something to do with their US distributor shutting down?
I have tried the 3D stamping paint - or tried to try. It was dried out and unusable even though I had just purchased it. Thankfully, I was able to get a refund. But I was bummed that I couldn't play with it.

Hmmm...I liked what I saw on YT but hearing about the product being useless and drying out before you can use it makes me want to scratch it off of my try-soon list.

Amazon has a bunch of colors of the 3d paint AND inka gold. I worked for the US distributor for awhile and I really do LOVE their products but they do dry out or mold super fast.

Have you used this product?. Can you use it in the same way that you use Viva Decor?
