Product information on Viva Decor hobby paint and paste
What is Blob paint (paint)?
Blob paint is a paint that allows you to create 3D dots. Placing several dots on top of each other creates even more depth. Blob paint images often have a colourful and playful character. 3D Blob paint has a high colour intensity and is water-based.
Before you start: shake well before use! Hold the tip of the bottle vertically over a flat lying surface and press the paint out of the bottle until the desired blob size (dot size) is reached. Let the dots dry for 24 hours before applying another layer.
Watch the Blob painting video below to get a good impression of the Blob painting technique.

What concrete do you use for crafting?
For crafting with concrete, use creative hobby concrete. KippersHobby has both casting concrete powder (Beton für Kreative from Viva Decor) and kneading concrete powder (Beton zum Kneten from Viva Decor) in its range.
The properties of creative in-situ concrete are:
Grey cement powder for easy pouring of decorative objects yourself. The fine-grained, quick-drying and low-dust casting concrete powder only needs to be mixed with water. Thanks to the special plastic finish and fibre reinforcement, the concrete is excellent for processing into all conceivable shapes, especially thin-walled objects.
- Weather- and frost-resistant
- Suitable for plastic moulds, papier-mâché moulds, silicone moulds and wooden moulds
The properties of ductile concrete are:
Beton zum Kneten from Viva Decor is a powder, which diluted with water becomes a firm but easily mouldable clay.
Not to be confused with the Cast Concrete, which diluted with water becomes a casting compound. The Beton zum Kneten dries and hardens in the air.

How do you make a pendant out of clay?
- Knead the Do & Dry clay and roll it out with a clay roller.
- Cut circles with a knife (e.g. use a round die-cutting template to follow the contours).
- Make a hole in the circle with a skewer (for use as a pendant).
- Technique 1 (embossed): Stamp the clay without curing, using Versamagic or Memento Tsukineko ink.
- Technique 2 (dry clay): Stamp the hardened clay with 3D Stampelfarbe, acrylic paint from Viva Decor, Memento ink or Versamagic ink from Tsukineko.
- Technique 3 (embossed): Stamp the clay without curing, let it dry completely and then rub it with Viva Decor's Inka Gold.
For stamping with acrylic paint, use a piece of felt as a stamp pad.
Apply a blob of paint to a plate, place a piece of felt (1mm) on this, stamp over this with a stamp just long enough for the paint to come through. When your stamp is loaded, you can stamp on all kinds of materials such as clay, paper, wood, etc.
