Specialty paints

Posted by CEFreeman (My Page) on

Hi all!
I have been reading a lot about some different special effect paints and I was wondring if anyone had any experience with them?

I get the technique and the result, but what I can' seem to find is the reason one would choose one of these paints over another to get any given effects. Fabulous Finishes, for example. Then there's Annie Sloan paints.

I'm looking for a "if you want this, use this because..." explanation.

What do you think?

Sorry CF, I'm of no help to you. I only use acrylics and some of the patio paints for outside projects on rocks and terra cotta pots. Maybe some of the others here will be able to help. Luvs
