Hey DIY crafters! Today’s Mixed Media Monday really delivers a mix of media! Recently, I gave myself a play day. You would think I play everyday and I kind of sort of do, but generally, I’m playing with a particular goal or project in mind. It is very hard for me to shift gears and say “It’s okay to play and not make anything and mess up and make mistakes and just discover”.
I’ve been wanting to create something with the doggie dies I have from the Spellbinders Media Mixage line and so this was included in the play day. I also dug out some UTEE (ultra thick embossing powder) and chipboard. What I discovered is this technique that looks like a painted rusty metal of sorts and other times, depending on the color you paint it, can look like glazed ceramic.
UTEE has a natural tendency to turn brown as it cooks in the melting pot. I don’t know how to prevent this, but at the same time, because I love vintage, the color gives a very nice aged appearance and so for this technique it is quite desirable.
I’d love to hear what you think of this technique and video. Please leave your comments below
