Hope you are enjoying your weekend?
Dee and I were working on the TV demos this week, and agreed that it would be a good idea to showcase one of the beautiful new horse stamps on TV, and blog the other one today.
So here’s what you need:
The Trojan Horse
Detail Black embossing powder
Dust the heat-resistant acetate with talc well first.
This will stop the powder clinging.
Stamp the Horse onto the heat-resistant Acetate with a
Versamark ink pad.
Sprinkle with black embossing powder.
Dust off stray speckles,
and heat emboss with a heat gun.
Attach the acetate with the horse to a sheet
of A6 double-sided adhesive.
Make sure the horse is on the outside.
Peel the orange wax paper off, and attach the acetate to that side,
so that the Clarity paper is left on the adhesive.
You will be able to see the horse through the paper.
Lightly draw the outline of the horse on the paper, and then gently cut along the cutline you have drawn with a scalpel.
Peel away the horse paper,
and add silver or gold gilding flakes.
Buff with a rubber finger.
one of each….
Cut a border around the outside, and peel away the centre.
Now fill the background with Variegated Copper gilding flakes.
Once again, buff with your sponge finger.
Carefully lift away the rest of the Clarity paper around the edge,
and lower your artwork onto black card.
Layer up on gold and silver board.
Isn’t that lovely?
we’ll get to grips with the wonderful wooden horse.
Looks like a map, doesn’t it?
Well Melanie was a cartographer – a map drawer! Funny that…
Finally, thank you so much for writing out the instructions for last week’s challenge. So many of you sent in very accurate instructions, so I had to pick a special winner: Angela Simpson.
Why Angela? Not only did she write perfect instructions – she even sent in the card!
Well done and congratulations, Angela!
Hope you can keep me company tomorrow morning on TV.
