Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop where you can find some new ideas or maybe rediscover some old ways to use your stamping and scrapbooking products. You may have arrived from Tabbi's blog.
This month, we're using Liquid Glass. Liquid glass is a clear, firm adhesive that dries slick and shiny.
My project features the acetate stained glass technique as well as Liquid Glass icicles.
Staz On Black Ink
Acetate film (from a package is my source)
Wax paper (from label packaging)
B1412 Perfect Fit Holidays
September Stamp of the Month
Frosted Paper Pack
1. Stamp front of Acetate with Staz-On. Be steady when stamping as it is a slippery surface. Allow to dry
2. apply a thin layer of liquid glass to the BACK of the image.
3. sprinkle glitter
4. allow to dry-just 10 minutes or so
I trimmed my closed images out and adhered them to black cardstock. If using a more open image, backing with a lighter, neutral cardstock will show off the stamp better.
1. make varied lengths of lines of liquid glass on wax paper.
2. Allow to dry about an hour
3. peel off and adhere to project with a little drop of liquid glass.
Caveat: Liquid glass looks great atop most ink colors, except reds and pinks will turn orangey for some reason. I guess if you want a mercurochrome color, add some liquid glass to pink ink. Occasionally, black will get a little weird too, but I've not been able to determine who or why that happens sometimes...maybe the moon phase affects it. :)
