I couldn't resist using that faux dichroic glass technique again. This time I used it on a couple of wooden stars.
2 Wooden Stars
Viva Croco Crackling Colour - Silver or Gold
Ranger Alcohol Ink - Sailboat Blue & Purple Twilight
Clear Embossing Enamel - Ultra Thick
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paint - Snowflake
Distress Ink - Black Soot
Clear Crushed Glass Glitter
Tinsel Twine - Silver
2 Adhesive Gems
1. I started by applying Viva Croco to the stars, then left them for 24 hours, to dry and crackle.
2. I then used a felt applicator to apply the two colours of alcohol ink all over the stars, front, back and sides.
3. I applied Versamark Ink to the crackled surface, then dipped it into clear ultra thick embossing enamel. I added a couple of layers.
4. I lightly painted the book paper with Snowflake paint, then stamped the words. The word 'Wishes' comes from the greeting 'Best Wishes', I just cut out the word I wanted. I inked the edges of the words with Black Soot Distress Ink.
5. I reheated the embossed stars, and used a cocktail stick to push the words into the molten enamel. I sprinkled more clear powder on top & melted it with my heat gun.
6. I applied Glossy Accents to the edges of the stars, and dipped them into some glass glitter. This took about 24 hours to dry thoroughly.
7. I finished my stars off with an adhesive gem and some silver tinsel twine.
I hope this inspires you to have a go at this fabulous technique.
