Hope you are all good!
I just wanted to pop by and share this exciting technique!
I love it when you discover something by accident....and this was one of those
Soooo how did it happen???
Well ........I was busy in the shed today creating some tags for Dylusions,
I was cutting and pasting some of Dyans designs onto a tag using Rangers collage glue stick when I accidentally transferred some of the glue onto the tag.....when I wiped it off I could see that it left a resist.....soooooo it got me thinking!!
And after a little time experimenting.....
I created some really exciting resist backgrounds!
I really want to share this technique with you so here
is a quickie tutorial on how and what to do :0)
You will need:
(I used Tim Holtz Mixed Media background stamps & Papillon)
To start create a background colour I used distress inks in Antique linen and edged the tag with Walnut stain
Next select your background stamp and gently paste over your stamp using
Rangers Collage glue stick
and stamp randomly onto the tag, changing stamps to suit your own style.
(As it is glue, it is important to remove the glue immediately from your stamp set)
When stamped you should be able to see the clear stamped sheen from the glue on your tag.
Using a heat gun give the glue a quick blast of heat.....
( wait for the tag to cool before touching)
When dry,ink up a darker colour on a blending tool( I used Walnut stain)
And gently work the ink onto your stamped images....(don't press too hard as the glue still has a waxy residue and too much pressure will smudge your image)
Repeat the process in the areas you have stamped.
To create the resist you need to take a baby wipe and swipe over the inked images,
this will remove the ink and the waxy residue to reveal the resist, dry off with heat tool
(remember don't over wipe, just gentle swipes)
Repeat on the other areas of your tag.
Some of the colour will fade...but you can use your blending tool to edge the edges, just don't re-cover the resist with ink.
Your tag is now ready to be stamped on, I stamped with Rangers Archival ink and coloured the images with Tim Holtz distress markers.
I have had a great time experimenting with this really versatile glue stick....
Need another idea??........why not try a resist through Dylusions stencils?
As always feel free to leave a comment
would love to know what you think!
Have a great day and stay inky!
