Glossy Accents and Acrylic
February 05, 2010
Hello everyone! It's Irene here. I'm finally back from the USA after attending the Winter CHA and teaching some classes there.
I've actually created a few technique ATCs using glossy accents for this CHA.
Above is an acrylic ATC that I've painted with Crackle Paint and later seal it using Glossy Accents. This will gives the crackled surface a dimensional and glossy look.
In the ATC above, I've used the "Glossy Accents and Peeled Away" technique. First I've randomly apply some Glossy Accents on the acrylic ATC. Then, I cover the ATC with a piece of pattern paper. When it's dry, peeled away some of the pattern paper from the acrylic ATC. This will create a distressed look to the acrylic surface.
Finally, the above ATC is created using the "Smudging Glossy Accents" technique. First, I've apply Glossy Accents all over the acrylic ATC and use a scrap plastic/paper to smudge it while it's still wet. When it's dry, apply some alcohol ink on the back of the ATC. This will create a "water effect" on the acrylic.
So, next time if you think your Glossy Accents could only be used as an adhesive or to create a glossy surface, think again. Try using it on your acrylics and create some of these cool effects! Happy experimenting!!
