Prima is known for their gorgeous handmade flowers and many other SLIGHTLY feminine products. HOWEVER Prima also carries so many other products that work well for those who aren’t head over heels for lace or pink flowers! Here are a few ideas to add a bit of edge to your next piece:
-Mechanicals by Finnabair- great metal pieces to add design, dimension and grit to your piece.
-Finnabair Moulds- edgy designs that you can make over and over again, painting them ANY color you choose.
-Texture Paste- Finnabair has so many amazingly textured pastes in a variety of great colors: Patina Pastes, Graphite Paste, Crackle Paste, Icing Paste, Rust Pastes, and more
-Black Gesso: Yes, a bit of contrast is beautiful, but a lot of contrast is even more eye-catching. Black Gesso is your go-to for darkening a piece, or adding lots of bold contrast.
-Stencils: Finnabair never disappoints with her wonderful stencil designs; so neutral, yet trendy and FUN to use. Try pairing with pastes, paints, or waxes.
-Waxes- the metallic waxes, in particular, make EVERYTHING look like real metal! Try using on moulded pieces, plastic, paper, chipboard, and more.
Masculine Cards by Ksenia
A little Texture Paste, a little Metallique Paint, and a few moulded pieces bring these cards to life, with a masculine spin. A touch of beautiful blue adds personality and contrast to the pieces.

Masculine Layout by Elena
Layouts of a wonderful man in your life, whether a father, brother, uncle, cousin, son, nephew, or close friend, is so important to document. Show them how much they mean to you with a special layout created just for them.
“I created this layout using a mix of different Prima collections: Golden Desert, Midnight Garden, and My Sweet, then it was embellished with a few Finnabair metal embellishments.” – Elena
Masculine Tags by Jaya
“When I design masculine projects I like them to be simple, elegant and grungy. I decided to use a monochrome theme for my tags with a pop of brown. These tags were created using some my favorite moulds from Finnabair. These are a must-have for any crafter. ” ~ Jaya
“For the background , I simply mixed black and white impasto paints and painted the tags. when they were dry, I stamped the tags using black archival ink. “
“Next, I layered some of the gear pieces and highlighted them. Finally, some details with beads, sequins and splatters were added, and my tags were ready.”
“Hope this gives you inspiration to create something this Father’s Day. Happy crafting!”
