Distress Oxide, Fresco and Tonic Hybrid Play!!

Fab topic this fortnight over on the PaperArtsy blog, being Hybrid Inks.

I have decided to play with some Distress Oxides along with PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Paint with a mix of Tonic Studio's Hybrid Inks.

I added some Distress Oxides in Peeled Paint and Cracked Pistachio. Before I added water, I used a few blobs of PaperArtsy Fresco Paint in Zesty Zing to the glass matt. Love the effect..

I also added some Distress Oxides in Faded Jeans to add a bit more interest.

The chevron stamping is from PaperArtsy Hot Picks 1501, and the ladies are from Buttons Plate 6. I took the hits and ideas from Miriam, and used a alcohol marker. I stamped this image with Tonic Studios Hybrid Ink in Metro Grey.

Great fun, do have a go, the oxides are addictive, different results each time!!!


  1. Stunning piece Bryan, I love the colours and great result. xx

  2. Very very cool! Love the effects you achieved! Don't you just love Oxides!!

  3. Loving these colours together Bryan. Great piece and quite conventional for you. I reckon that you were hungry when you created this cos I see fried eggs! 😜

  4. I never got around to use the Oxide on Fresco but it's on my list... Nice experimentation!
