Getting misty

One of my favorite techniques to use with Clear Scraps acrylic is misting. The only downside to it is that you need to prepare ahead of time. Since acrylic isn't a porous surface you have to wait quie a while for the misting to dry. I usually mist the acrylic at night before I head to bed and then when I get up in the morning it is good and dry. Another tip is to use a sealant over the top. Most of the mists that are on the market are water soluble and just the slightest touch from something damp can smear it.

On this layout I used a metallic reddish pink from Tattered Angels, I have also used Maya Mist successfully. For those of you that may have Mr. Huey's they don't work, the mist never dried for me. I started with an XL Heart shape and used an older Heidi Swapp Mask on it to spray over.

Big thanks to Pink Paislee for contributing to the Clear Scraps DT. I was sent the Sweetness line, love the colors and the romantic, vintage feel of it.


I colored the chipboard alphas using Distress Ink.


Here is a close up shot of the misting.


I'd love to you all break out the mists and give them a try. They add a cool dimension to acrylic!
