Product Review: Caromal Colours Chipping Creme


One of my favorite products! Caromal Colours Chipping Creme is a must-have for the style of art I create. Watch the video to learn how the chipping creme works to protect my layer of collage work or another paint color underneath. Once you start using this product you will wonder how you managed without it.

Here is an explanation of the chipping creme from the Caromal Colours site:

“Chipping Creme is a product designed to work between separate layers of Textured Basecoat, like peanut butter between two slices of bread. This material creates a poor bonding layer between your Textured Basecoats, allowing you to remove the upper layer of Textured Basecoat in decorative patches, exposing the first or background color layer. The result is a chipped or worn-off “old world” paint finish look. Chipping Creme can be brushed or rolled on your surface.”

The chipping creme was originally designed to be used on furniture but I like to think outside the box and discovered it works well for artists, too.

After filming this video, I decided to try something else using the chipping creme. I have some rather large vintage tin ceiling tiles that I am anxious to paint on. I purchased them a year or so ago and they are fabulous! They are a bit rusty with a couple layers of chipped paint here and there. They would make an amazing surface for an angel painting or Mary & Jesus painting.

I am testing it out now. My hope is that the chipping creme will create a strong enough barrier to keep the rust from bleeding through the painting and also keep the layers of chipped paint in place. I will probably put two or three coats of the chipping creme on the tin tiles before painting the angel art. Wish me luck! Stay tuned for the outcome!

Happy Creating!

I just found your web site and purchased several of your angel prints. I painted years ago and these last two videos have inspired me to start again. I’m heading out to buy scrap book paper, chipping cream, etc.. Do you teach painting classes? It would be so wonderful to take a weekend retreat with you!

Thanks so much for sharing your talent.

Thank you Jammmie for the order! At this time, I do not teach workshops but I hope to in the future. I am happy to have inspired you to start painting again! Have fun!
