Julia says to mix sand or embossing powder with a mixture of patina colored acrylic paint and acrylic medium. I mixed cardinal red with burnt sienna and used some embossing powder that I accidentally mixed different colors together. Paint this mixture on your paper, I choose some store bought die cuts and some I did myself.
The purchased die cut started out black, so I decided to add a second layer of the paint mixed with embossing powder. Also painted a die cut heart that I had first dry embossed.
Next, if desired, stipple on other patina paint colors. I chose this acrylic metallic paint to stipple on my paper elements.
I'm having lots of fun with the projects in Julia's book.
