Taped the corners of the card to keep it from slipping and used a palette knife to spread on the paste.
While the paste was still wet, used a trowel to create a textured design (could use a comb or plastic fork or cut credit card or other implement to make texture designs). I spread the extra paste over a dictionary page for future use. Let dry.
How it looks after drying:
Tried this technique with mixing two different mica powders (blue and green) with Gel acrylic medium over black paper, again spreading the extra paste onto dictionary pages.
Then tried the technique with a small amount of purple mica powder and a generous amount of copper mica powder mixed with Gel acrylic medium on a yellowish-orange paper:
These are beautiful Carol, I have always been going to try a similar technique and after seeing yours I will try it tomorrow. I haven't got the book as yet, but will order it. Thanks.
I haven't tried this. It looks very interesting, but I'm not a fan of stripes, even if they are curvy :-)
I wonder how it would work if you mixed and spread the paste, then waited until it was half dry and stamped into it with rubber stamps or found objects?
I must trry it out and see....
Look in the beginning of the paste paper section in Julia's book, she shows using rubber stamps in the paste like you're suggesting.
Looks like messy fun, and the results are beautiful!
Brilliant Carol!! I love your step by step photo tutes... and the results are always so cool! Thanks for sharing that technique! xo
