Pastes

Tommy Art pastes include a number of mediums appropriate for creating special effects. Use the pastes with a palette knife to create the natural look of sand, rock, rust, or stucco. Stencils can also be used to add relief effects. Some Tommy Art pastes can be mixed with Tommy Art chalk colors to transform the chalk-based paints into modeling pastes.
