Create amazing effects by spritzing or brushing layers of colour over colour, while still wet, each layer will push aside the under layers.
Produce beautiful glazes and truly spectacular colours with clarity and depth by allowing each layer to dry before applying the next.
Create Glowing Pastel shades with a touch of opacity by adding Blanco Blanco to any of the Piñata Colours.
Extend drying and working time by using with Pinata Claro, which also keeps the ink shiny and maintains colour.
Spread colour and create rings of marble or stone like texture by Claro dropped or brushed on top of dry Piñata (a slight dulling occurs, but most will remain shiny).
Slightly lighten colours by Mixing Piñata inks with alcohol
Create tiny bubble-like textures, by using colours diluted with alcohol with a sponge, great for making background papers and other interesting textural faux effects.
Remove the shine by using alcohol, dropped or brushed on top of dried Piñata, this is useful where shine would detract from the overall effect, such as terra cotta surfaces or in faux finishing techniques.
