Dried Glaze Die-Cuts
Hello! Dana Tatar here today sharing a project that utilizes Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Glaze in a super fun way. I've taken glaze off-the-page and used it to create tinted die-cut embellishments!
Step Two: Lightly spritz the Gelatos® color with water and blend until smooth. Add a small amount of Glaze to the Gelatos® color and mix well. Spread the glaze into a thin layer with a palette knife.
Step Three: Pop any large air bubbles with a paper piercer. Let the glaze dry overnight.
I mixed up several colors of glaze. Here are my dry "skins" before cutting. These skins are quite strong and are similar in consistency to a fruit roll-up, but without the stickiness.
Step Four: Carefully peel the glaze skins from the craft mat, place between layers of wax paper and punch or die-cut as desired.
I created a colorful ATC base out of collage paper, a torn book page and tape. I sealed the layers of paper with Gel Medium and added color with Gelatos®. I scraped Gesso over the top of the card and added a pop of color with orange mist that I mixed up using the Gelatos® Mist Maker Set and a Tangerine Gelato®.
I used a Stamper's Big Brush Pen and a stamp* to add a message to this heart.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you. If you'd like to see more of my work, please stop by my blog, They Call Me Tatar Salad.
