Items you need
Here are some examples of how you can apply your paint to the Craft Mat, each will give different results.
Don't forget to spray quite a bit of water otherwise the photo paper will stick, and you end up with anasty mess.............. You can either drag your paper or just press down, either way your colours will perform differently.
The most Important thing to remember is to let it dry Naturally. This is the Cool bit, as it dries the Acrylics start to Crack and Separate, for me this is the best bit as you never know whats going to happen. So be patient and the Magic will begin. Below are some samples of what you can expect to happen. Had great difficulty choosing as wanted to show you them all..........lol
So have fun, thats the main thing and experiment.
You can do this technique or plain paper on card, say for your journal pages, tags or card making, but the colours do not separate quite as well, but still gives some great effects
The above paints were given to me by my dear friend Andrea of Smudgemastic for my birthday last year.
Hope haven't bored you to death, but its my last day as GD for Scrollswork so was determined I would go out with a blast...............lol
Have a great day and please let me know if you try this technique as would love to see, and if there is anything you would like to ask just email me and will be happy to answer you. So its a tearful farewell and a big thank you for Jacque for letting me be her Guest Designer for the month. Hugs Annette x
