I absolutely love Dina Wakley, Dyan Reavely and all of their supplies by Ranger. When it comes to their paints you go from one end of the spectrum to the other. However, they both have their purpose.
Dina Wakleys Heavy Body Acrylic Paint come in a pallets of 16 colors and are in in 2oz. tubes, the tubes help keep air from getting in and drying it out and I would describe her color pallets as from the 80’s..bright and totally awesome! However, this year Dina did add some metallic colors to her pallete such as Penny, Gild, and Sterling.The back of the tube describe the colors as an artist quality opaque paint. Richly pigmented, these paints feature a thick buttery consistency that will hold brush strokes, peaks, and tool marks and can also be smoothed easily. Paints blend well with other media colors, creating an endless palette.
I will tell you that Dinas paints are extremely buttery especially compared to the Liquitex paints that I normally use. The paint feels wonderful under your brush. Speaking of brushes Dina Wakley also has a set of stiff bristled brushes in her line as well. They are long handled and very comfortable to use.
Moving on to Dylusions Acrylic Paints by Dyan Reavley. They come in pots of 12 vibrant colors and are blendable yet waterproof, dries quickly to a matte finish, and accepts all types of writing inks. Dyan and Ranger designed these paints with the art journaler in mind. Dylusions paints remind me of a thicker ink due to the viscosity of the paint and can be used on canvases as well as in your journals.
Like I said both paints have there purpose and to be honest, I use them both when creating in my journal or any of my mixed media canvases. I highly recommend them for anyone’s art stash!
