IMAGINE Crafts New Products for 2015: Mixed Media Texture and Tools!

We’re so excited about our 2015 releases that we can’t wait until January to begin the unveiling. So, without further ado, meet some of our latest innovations!


Texture, color, and shimmer for almost every surface: introducing an expansion to our Creative Medium line, Creative Medium Metallic and Creative Medium Iridescent.  Available in four Metallic and six Iridescent colors, these versatile new Creative Medium colors can be spread, dabbed, and stenciled for subtle highlights or stunning effects.  Creative Medium Metallic and Iridescent work on almost any surface including paper, acrylic, metal, wood and fabric.

In addition, our new products include tools for getting the most out of Creative Medium: Palette Knives and Doodlestix.

Let your creativity go wild!  Here are just a few ideas:

Stencil Creative Medium Metallic or Iridescent onto a surface using a Palette Knife for smooth, even coverage.

After applying or stenciling Creative Medium, add details using DoodleStix.

DoodleStix make great tools for Creative Medium, acrylic paint, ink and more.


DoodleStix 5-pack set

DoodleStix can be used on any surface (such as an IMAGINE Crafts Craft Mat, Gelli Plate or paper) to move ink, paint and pastes. Use to add details in Creative Medium or other thick mediums, or use for etching. The soft silicone tip is easily cleaned and resists staining. Each set contains 5 different styles: Angle chisel, Cup chisel, Cup round, Flat chisel, and Taper point.

Get smooth, even coverage of Creative Medium, acrylic paint, and other mediums with Palette Knives.  Or, use to build up or shape mediums for texture effects.


Palette Knife 3-pack set

Use the trowel for spreading and smoothing large areas, the diamond trowel for reaching small areas, and the Scotty knife for spreading, scraping and adding texture.

In the coming weeks, our talented Artists in Residence team will bring you many more ideas, techniques and projects using Creative Medium, DoodleStix and Palette Knives.

And we’re not done yet — stay tuned for further announcements of our new-for-2015 products!

My stencils will be getting a major workout when these are available!! Will have to have all of the Creative mediums in Metallic and Iridescent also!! I might NEVER come out of my craft room when they arrive!
    I would make lots and lots of canvases, altered art (boxes mostly) and also cards, cards and more cards!!

  8. Wow, that creative medium in iridescent green on the white and black paper looks amazing!! I am definitely interested in this product! And the metallic too. I have a lot of stencils, both metal and plastic versions that I could use this product with. But it is great that it has other uses too. And the doodlestix look interesting too.
