So before we start Day 2 peeks, someone had a question about the cooking set of chipboards - we think you mean this one:
This What's Cookin' Set came out about 1 month ago and has been shipping to retailers!
You can see more of it in all its beauty here:
Oh and before we forget, all the chipboard, kraft and envelope goodness you saw yesterday are on their way to our warehouse and will start shipping shortly after CHA!!Today is Maya Mist, Ink and Resist Peek Day!
Let's start off with our Inks - we had a fabulous release with our 1" Ink Pads last time, but check out what we have in store for you this time - Maya Road 1" Metallic Ink Pads!
These ink pads are amazing as they are a wonderful complement to our chipboards. If you are looking for a matte metallic look on chipboard, check out what you can do here. Here is the silver one on one of our chipboard numbers:
Here is the charcoal one on a chipboard keychain (and check out the extra peek at the little bird - hmmm wonder when he will show up again?):
Here is the blue, pink, silver, bright silver and gold one in use. All you have to do is ink the chipboard with the metallic ink pads for an amazing look. Take the ink pad and swipe it on the chipboard two to three times to give it a matte metallic look. Or complete the look with some stickles or clear crackle paint!
Each ink pad is only $2.25 retail!
Now, along with these ink pads, we have a superb selection of 6 new Metallic Maya Mists! The colors are Pink Grapefruit, Cotton Candy, Salmon, Tangerine, Blue Corn and Latter Metallic Mists.
Here are the new mist colors and how they look on chipboard. All it took was about 2 sprays per number to get this look!
Check out how the mists look on one of our mini chipboard banners:
And here is the pink grapefruit on one of our chipboard keychains:
You can also see we have been getting inky - check out this canvas we did mixing the Cotton Candy Metallic Mist with the Tangerine one with gesso - the colors come out amazingly soft and a totally different look than the mist directly on canvas or chipboard!
Related to this, we are pleased to announce the arrival of a new Maya Road product - Maya Resist!
This Maya Resist is a pretty darn cool product. It is formulated to work with our Maya Mists, Ink Pads and also regular acrylic paints! The resist comes in a bottle like this - please excuse this bottle as it is the only one we have here - our workhorse bottle. The rest of the Maya Resist are on their way to CHA or coming to our warehouse! Trust us, the bottles will be prettier when you see them in person.
You can purchase the Resist with and without the thin applicator tip as it is reusable.
The Maya Resist allows you to create a mask on most surfaces - chipboard, most papers, most canvas, etc. The Resist is a fluid product which allows you to create very detailed masking with the applicator tip. You can even create a mask with your signature - the fluid nature of the product allows you to write and doodle if you wish.
Here is a step by step example of what you can do.
Check this canvas banner we started painting with a mixture of Salmon Metallic Mist, Cotton Candy Metallic Mist and gesso.
Next, we used the Maya Resist and drew a heart. You can see that the resist comes out in a opaque blue color.
Next we allowed the Maya Resist to dry til it was a clear blue (about 10 minutes but will depend on the humidity):
Then we took some more of the Cotton Candy Metallic Mist and applied it to the canvas and wiped the excess off of the resist part.
Then carefully start lifting off the resist and this is what you see:
How pretty and easy is that? Check out how this banner now looks all decked out (and hey is that an EARLY PEEK at a Maya Road Trinket Blossom and canvas banner?). We also dyed some yellow seam binding with the Latte Metallic Mist:
Here is another example of the Maya Resist in action.
We drew a flower on a canvas with the Maya Resist and allowed it to dry til it was clear blue:
Next we used some of our Silver Metallic Mist and sprayed over the flower and wiped off the excess.
And we have one more peek for you - this one is sorta of a category by itself. About 5 years ago, we started making Maya Road Mega Bottlecaps. We had sold out of them for a while and decided to bring them back since we had so many requests for them. Our Mega Bottlecaps were almost 2" in diameter. Well, we wanted to bring in something even bigger and more fabulous - what about an almost 3" Super Mega Bottlecap? Check it out here right next to the 2" one:
There are a ton of possiblities - here is what we turned one of the Super Mega Bottlecaps into:
We hope you have enjoyed the Day 2 Peeks! Leave us a comment and tell us what you love today for a chance to win a Maya Road CHA-W prize pack!
