Filed under: News — bayersps @ 8:48 pm


Faux Tarnished Silver



Silver embossing powder–I use detail powder


Clear ultra thick embossing enamel (UTEE)


Versamark ink


Chipboard die cut shape


Heat gun



Ink chipboard shape with versamark and cover with silver embossing powder. Heat until it melts. Let cool and cover shape again with versamark, applying it lightly and randomly. Coat with UTEE, being sure to leave some areas uncovered. Heat UTEE until it melts creating a mottled effect that looks like tarnished silver. If you need to add more UTEE, sprinkle it on while the silver is warm and heat with heat gun.
