Hello all. I hope you had a great weekend. I’m off and running this week with another TLC on Splitcoaststampers.com. I saw THIS POST by Jacquie Hefner where she had a tutorial on Faux Enamel Technique. Wow, was I blown away from the results that she achieved. I didn’t have any metallic crayons. (my baby is 25, and while I did have a container of crayons for company, I didn’t have any metallic ones. I even made a special trip to my local Walgreens, thinking for sure they would have some with the isles and isles of school supplies, but no luck) So…I just continued on with what I had, and while I didn’t get the awesome metallic shimmer that Jacquie achieved, I was quite happy with my results just the same. Now I’m on the hunt for metallic crayons so I can try this again.
Here is a closer look where you can see some of the thick shine and dimension that this technique adds. I added some black crystals to the bodies and attached them with glue dots. I hope that you will join me on the Try a New Technique challenge TLC238 and give this fun technique a try.
