We have something new on the Woodware Blog this week, one of the design team are choosing the theme for the week, altough they do give me ideas sometimes, I claim them for mysoefl but this week it is over to one of them. They could choose a technique of a thing or well just about anything.
So first to choose is Francoise Read, and I am first to post.
Francoise has chosen Sakura Glaze Pens as her theme. I have used them on Lucky Squirrel Shrink Plastic to show how versatile they are.
The shrink plastic comes in clear, translucent, white and black, or you can get a starter pack that has 2 sheets of each.
I have stamped on the white shrink plastic here with Black Surfacez ink from Colorbox. One of my favourite things about shrink plastic is that your mistakes get shrunk with the piece, so stamping does not have to be perfect.
Here you can see how patching the stamping is. I have coloured the flower plastic with the rose pink and the turquoise they are nice and wet so you can blend them together and have touches of purple, this will work on card too but it is really well none porous surfaces.
When you heat the shrink it will curl up and you have to be brave, and just keep heating.
an acrylic block is a handy way to flatten the piece if it does not go completely flat when heating.
here you can see how much the pieces shrink.
I have some translucent pieces too.
Here you can see that I have used the Clear Glaze Pen as a blender pen to get the orange to blend to nothing.
I have also used the Clear Star pen to add a bit of sparkle to the flower.
Here is the finished white one the kilt pins are a really good way to display the pieces.
I have also done a bag charm also on white.
Put together with lots of jump rings.
Thanks for visiting, see you soon with more Sakura Glaze Pen inspiration.
