Thanks for popping in! So glad you like those Chinese Lanterns we showcased today!
Here’s a photo step by step of the afternoon canvas! When our Sam was on the telly the other week, I snaffled a couple of the painty copy paper prints she pulled on the day. What great backdrops they make! Can you see her Mixed Impressions Stamps in the prints?
- Stamp with black Archival ink.
- Cover with the stencil and pad Versamark ink through the stencil.
- Remove the stencil, add clear embossing powder – and
- Heat from on top with a heatgun. Voila – glazed.
- Use a dye-based Artistry ink like Aged Stucco on a Spot-on sponge to work colour into the background and wipe the ink off the embossed parts.
Now to mount on a canvas board.
- Hold up to a window and find the best position.
- Make registration marks at the back with a biro and trim the copy paper. Cut the corners.
- Apply Découpage Kleber & Lack Sealant on the front of the canvas board with a brush.
- Lay that canvas board face down on the back of the artwork, using the registration marks for positioning.
- Flip over and roll over the front with a clean brayer, to eliminate any air pockets. Creases will dry out.
- Wrap the copy paper print around the little canvas board, adding sealant to the flaps as you fold in to the back. Copy paper is very easy to tuck in.
- Use a the flat of a black pencil to add shade. See how the canvas board texture shows through? Cool!
- Cut a piece of double-sided adhesive tape to fit the back of the canvas board, and attach it to an A5 canvas board.
- Sign with a black biro. Done.
