Wow! Technique Tuesday came around fast at Sparkle N Sprinkle! I hope you had a good weekend. I named this technique Glitzy Glue because you use a lot of glue and as you can see it is very glitzy. I loved this technique and ended up making a lot of backgrounds with it.
- Brushable Glue 540
- water spritzer
- stipple brush
- black glossy card stock
- 3 colors of pigment powder paints
- glitter ( I used Autumn Medley G1013 )
- heat tool
- plastic or metal plate or pan for glue
- spray sealer
Squeeze about a quarter size puddle of glue onto plate and spritz it with water to make it soupier.
Take the stipple brush and start pouncing the glue all over the glossy black card stock.
Add your first color of pigment powder paint over the glue. I poured it straight from the bottle, tapping gently. Be careful not to pour out a bunch in one spot. You may want to dip a paintbrush into the powder and flick off the powder.
Do this with the other 2 colors of powder paints.
I wanted to add a little more sparkle so I sprinkled on some glitter at the end.
Now this is the tricky part! WARNING! Make sure you heat this piece from the bottom! My friend, Bren, and I found out the hard way. We had powder flying everywhere! LOL! Heat this from the bottom using your heat tool and heat until you see the glue bubble. Then start heating from the top. There will still be some powder flying, but not too much. You can see that the glue gives a neat shimmery texture with the powder paints. Of course the glitter added that special touch! You will definitely have to use a spray sealer to seal your work.
I hope you have as much fun as I did making these backgrounds. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
