Gregory Decor Paint Inlay™ Pad
IOD paint and laser the artisanal answer to decor transfers. They are not a detail; they are not a synthetic film; they are not decoupage. When you apply an IOD paint inlay, artisanal paint is embedded into your service in the paper is removed, leaving an authentic painted design and a buttery almost leather like surface on your piece.
IOD paint and lays are made from a proprietary artist quality paint which we formulated specifically for decorative use. They are organic in nature and the transfer of the painted design will be slightly varied and unique for each individual. The results are visually interesting, texturally complex, and often inherently distressed. The paint formula is active until sealed. That means that you can manipulate it and apply special techniques or a custom touch before you seal your piece. And, as if once isn't enough, you can often get a beautifully faded second impression, with a residual pigment on your left over inlay sheets. Depending on the techniques and colors you're using with your paint inlay, sometimes you can even get a third impression!
An important note: for the best results with a basic application, use a chalk type paint that does not contain polymers.
