Here is a quick panelled tag I have made as an experiment using Personal impressions excellent 300 gsm card-stock.
I first cut the basic tag shape and then stuck 300 gsm cardstock panels on top, overlapping them slightly in places.
Rivet's were applied using an Americana dimensional writer and the tag was decorated using Americana acrylic paint.
I have a little note book which goes with me everywhere in which I write down ideas that pop into my head. I have decided to do a little demo with it using modeling paste or you could use gesso.
THIS IS PART ONE OF A TWO PART TUTORIAL
Spread the modeling paste evenly over the surface using an old credit card. once covered dip the card into some water and lightly smooth the surface.
Clean up edges with a pallet knife.
Dry the surface with a heat tool until it forms a skin, move the heat around rather than concentrating in one place to avoid cracking the paste.
Spray stamps and dowels etc..with water and stamp into the paste.
Once dry, paint the surface with one coat of Americana Buttermilk.
Once dry, paint a coat of Decoart Duraclear Gloss Varnish and allow to dry.
The second part, to be posted soon is a new way of using acrylic paint for me.
