The 2017 Craft & Hobby Association Creativation Show is wrapping up and we want to share a few of our favorite moments with you.

Check out Mark Montano's tour of the booth and all of the 2017 NEW DecoArt products!

New products

DecoArt was proud to launch over 175 new products at Creativation this year. Which product are YOU most excited about? Leave us a comment below!

Stay tuned in 2017 for more inspiration from Mark Montano... we bet some of the projects in the queue include his new favorite products, Extreme Sheen and Patent Leather.

Tracy Moreau shared a wealth of DIY knowledge in the DecoArt booth, including hands on projects using the NEW Americana Decor Curb Appeal paint.

Thanks to everyone for helping us complete the lovely (and giant) Grand Canyon paint-by-number using the NEW Americana Premium Acrylics!

So many people jumped out of their comfort zones and got their hands dirty with Andy Skinner in his mixed media demos and make-and-take projects! Don't you love how well his new Stampendous stamps work with the Media Fluid Acrylics?

Did you get splattered? Hundreds of people let loose, slung some paint around, and created bold, super fun art. Thanks to our fellow sponsors: 3M, ScotchBlue, and Phoenix's own Pinspiration.


DecoArt's Manager of Creative Design and Education, Natalie Wright, inspired this lovely group to incorporate paint-n-sip programs like Social Artworking into their shops.

Andy Skinner and Tracy Weinzapfel teamed up for another Dare to Create workshop at Creativation 2017! We love the uniqueness found in each of the finished pieces, don't you?

I think this year 2017 new products were the best and so nice that there was something new for every crafter or DIYer. I'm very happy with all new paints for inside and out of my home! Thank you DecoArt, Cornelia Short
