We've put together a small collection of videos which we have gleaned from the internet. These relate to products which we mostly stock in our shop. Hopefully, you will find these useful.



Amazing Gyro-Cut from Crafty Products:


The Gyro-Cut is a great cutting tool for paper-cutting, decoupage, scrap-booking, stencil-cutting, graphic design, artwork or many other forms of crafting. Its unique, patented design provides amazing paper-cutting capability. Even the most challenging projects can be completed with ease using GYRO-CUT.


New Metallic Distress Paints:

Tim introduces the brand New Metallic Distress Paints (Tarnished Brass, Brushed Pewter, Antique Bronze). Like the other distress paints they work well on a variety of surfaces. Can be used with distress stains or other distress paints to give great backgrounds, with a lovely metallic sheen.


Distress Paints:

Tim introduces the Ranger Distress Paints - a very fluid waterbased acrylic paint. Usable on all kinds of surfaces, reactive with water. Blend with each other or distress stains or ink pads to make some great backgrounds. Waterproof when dry.


Metallic Distress Stains:

Here Tim introduces the Ranger Metallic Distress Stains (Tarnished Brass, Brushed Pewter, Antique Bronze). These are semi opaque Distress Stains and come with a mixing ball. As you will see from the video, unlike other metallics because they are water based they can be used to blend with water (in moderation) to create a ghosting effect. Tim also stamps with them, blends with other translucent (non-metallic) Stains and Distress Inks applying them to variety of surfaces. Take a look!


Kraft Glassine:

In this video, Tim demonstrates the versatility of Kraft Glassine, which is a coated Kraft paper (Not Wax Coated). Available in packs of 5" x 7". He crumples it and applies distress ink, heat-sets perfect pearls on the paper, stamps with archival ink, prints photos on it with an ink-jet printer, uses alcohol inks, punches shapes and embosses it! I did say it was versatile - not bad for 10 minutes!



Ranger Melting Pot Basics:

In this video the Melting Pot Designer Suze Weinberg, accompanied by Tim Holtz runs through some of the basics of the Melting Pot, and introduces a few of the products which can be used with it, including UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) and the "To Dye For" dyes.


Shrink Mosaics using the Ranger Melting Pot:

Tim uses the new style Ranger Melting Pot in this video, with UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) with some die cut shapes from shrink plastic and colours with adirondack alcohol inks to make some great embellishments.

Distress Marker Basics:

Tim demonstrates various techniques using the dual nibbed Ranger Distress Marker pens. He uses a waterbrush to produce a great watercolour look, and then stamps directly with the markers. Finally, he takes a look at the opaque "picket fence" marker.



Perfect Distress:

Tim introduces the Ranger Perfect Pearls pack in this video. He then uses the (pigmented) Perfect Pearls and Ranger Distress Ink Pads to make great shimmering backgrounds, and with the help of a little water from a mini-mister completes the effect.
