Texture stamping Part1

Here is a quick panelled tag I have made as an experiment using Personal impressions excellent 300 gsm card-stock.
Andy Skinner Steampunk Tag2
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

Step3
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.
