Hi everyone and welcome to this weeks WCYDW….today I am going to show you a couple of fun and easy ways to alter chipboard pieces.
I have a little Pictorial for you on how to use your Gelatos to make a crackle effect and a quick video on using Stampendous Embossing Enamels on chipboard.
I am using a chipboard piece from Dusty Attic, some cheap Elmers white glue, Gelatos and acrylic paint.
Cover your chipboard piece with Gelatos. I have chosen to use two colors.
Mist the chipboard piece with water and blend the two colors with your finger.
Paint on a layer of glue now, not too thick. Now let this dry about 10 maybe 15 minutes. You want it to be tacky for the next step but not dry. Just touch the glue lightly with your finger and see if it is still tacky.
I have used some white dabber paint…just remove the top and dip in your paintbrush. You DO NOT want to do lots of strokes here because the glue is still tacky underneath, so just one stroke if you can.
Let this AIR dry now. If you try to hurry it up it will not crackle as well. This is after 15 minutes.
This is after 30 minutes. Pretty cool hey! I hope you give this a try. It is so easy.
