CHA Part 2 - Ranger

One of my most favorite companies is Ranger - they have fabulous products, great designers and always a gorgeous booth.  Here are some of their displays. I love how they do their color samples.

Archival Inks

Samples for some of their tools

New Patina Paints - these come in sets of three and are great for metal
Configuration box with new Ideaology casters - sew cute!
Another configuration box with a book

Old typewriter stamp and matching die - die makes a slit for inserting paper with typed text!

Love the displays throughout the booth

Every year Ranger hosts a Designer Challenge. This year designers received a dress form and had to use Stickles and/or Liquid Pearls.  The results were beautiful, imaginative and, sometimes, over the top. I only took a few photos but this shows the range of ideas.

The new product I'm most excited about is the Distress Markers.  They come in the 36 Distress Ink colors plus a white and are water-based.  You can stamp with them, do watercolor effects, color and lots more.  They will be sold individually or in the set. There's a neat cylindrical container for storage too.

 And I can't wait for Tim's new book to hit the stores! If it's anything like Volume I it's a winner.

Other new products include two waterbrushes - one is much like others on the market with a pointed brush tip, but the other is like nothing I've seen before. It has a wide brush tip - great for washes, backgrounds and larger areas.  

Ranger has on board a new designer - Dyan Reavley from England. She has a line of gorgeous spray inks which are very intense and concentrated as well as funky stamps and some great stencils. Can't wait to play with some of these.

You are so lucky to get to see all of this new stuff....even though your feet were probably killing you by the time the show was over.
