Iron Orchid Designs Décor Paint Inlays

IOD Paint Inlays are the artisanal answer to décor transfers.  IOD Décor Paint Inlays are not a decal, transfer, synthetic film or decoupage. This is a brand new product line by IOD.

 

Visit the OFFICIAL Iron Orchid Designs Paint Inlays 101 page for videos, complete step by step instructions, tips, and how-to's.

 

When you apply an IOD Paint Inlay, artisanal paint is embedded into your surface, the paper removed, leaving an authentic painted design and a buttery, almost leather-like surface on your piece.

 

IOD Paint Inlays are made from a proprietary artist-quality paint which was 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 you can manipulated 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 the residual pigment on your "leftover" Paint Inlay sheets.  Depending on the techniques and colors you are using with your Paint Inlay, sometimes you can even get a third impression!


For a step-by-step, tips, and videos, visit the Official IOD Paint Inlay webpage for Videos and FAQs!

IMPORTANT NOTE:  IOD recommends for best results with basic application, use a chalk-type paint that does not contain polymers. Polymer-based paints and topcoats can also be used, but the timing and results will vary, so check out IOD tutorials for that and more special technique videos.
