Faux Textured Glass Tutorial

Hi everyone! Wendy here and today I'm going to share a tutorial for creating a faux textured glass effect with the Clear Scraps Trifold Regular Frame


Supplies Used: Clear Scraps (Trifold Regular Frame, Small Dream Expression), Stampendous stamps, Sharpie Markers, Ranger Alcohol Inks, Tsukineko (Goosebumps Spray, Memento  and StazOn), Copper Foil, White acrylic paint



1. Remove protective coating and stamp images on the front of Trifold pieces. 


2. Remove protective covering on the other side of the acrylic trifold. Using Sharpies or Alcohol Inks, color in stamped images on the back side. Sharpies or alcohol inks will react with StazOn so be sure to color on the opposite side. 

3. To make the flowers pop a bit, paint white acrylic paint over the Alcohol ink layer. 
4. Allow acrylic paint to dry and then spray with Goosebumps on the side with the Alcohol inks and acrylic paint. This will give the acrylic pieces a texture similiar to water glass and also seal in the paint.
5. Wrap Trifold pieces with Copper Foil. 
6. Use wire to bind the panels together. 
7. Embellish with Dream acrylic piece, stamped images and a quote. 
idea to note: paint white acrylic paint on the back of the Dream acrylic embellishment and outline with copics.
