TEXTURE TECHNIQUE TIME

Want to create some fun texture?  This time, I am using Delta Texture Magic, cashmere color.  You need a tool to spread it.  Also, Glimmer Mist- Cocoa, Pearlescent Liquid Acrylic-Waterfall Green.



Apply texture to tool, and spread thin layers to desired texture.  I used thin "icing" strokes.  Clean tool off afterwards, the texture dries quickly.  Note, the thicker you apply, longer it takes to dry



Here is what it looks like after application





I sprayed Glimmer Mist all over it


Apply liquid acrylic, with tool, toothbrush, paintbrush, etc...



I used a heat gun, about 6 inches away to dry.  You can also let it sit dry. I also turn the paper over and dry the back side, helps the process along!  Remember if you apply a lot of texture, it will take longer to dry. Here is how it looks dry.


And now create your masterpiece.
Here's  mine.  "I Need a Hug"
