I decided to experiment with different paints but tried to use the same colours. I chose to paint an mdf plaque and a #8 manila tag. As you can see I chose blue and orange starting with the DecoArt Multi Surface Satin paints. The blue is called true blue and the orange is 2 coats of neon with a coat of pumpkin patch over the top.
This is the DecoArt Chalky Finish Paints in Legacy which is the blue and heritage which is the orange.
And my third choice, Dylusions in London Blue and Squeezed Orange.
Here are the mdf plaques side by side in the same order as above, Multi Surface, Chalky & Dylusions.
And the tags side by side, again same order.
And then the fun began as I wanted to see how they stamped. These are the DA multi surface.
More Dina stamps with the new Finn brick wall stamped in archival on the Dylusions paints.
And finally the DecoArt Chalky Finish paints again incorporating Dina's images.
Here are all the mdf plaques lined up.
And the tags side by side, multi surface, chalky & Dylusions.
And finally the plaques with the corresponding tags underneath.
After all that I don't have a preference, they all work perfectly well on the mdf and on the manila tags and as you can see, the stamping on each turned out fine.
Next I think I need to mix the different products with each other and see how they blend together.
