Did you enjoy the release ladies? We were delighted by all of the lovely comments you folks left on the DT blogs! - Lynn posted earlier today about the Blog waltz winner - just scroll down to see if it was you!
Today I have a wee 'How - To' for you - it was something I stumbled over when making samples and it's a neat trick for use with my cameos, but I can picture other things i could do with it.... :)
I specifically wanted to add a detail to my cameo lady - she's from the Cameo to go set and I had heat embossed her with some white powder - it wasn't the fine detail stuff cos I was looking for a sort of antique finish.
I thought I would give her a pearl ear ring, so I pierced her 'ear' right where I thought it would be, with a sharp pin.
Next I put out a blob of white paint on a tiny bit of scrap card. Card is better than paper for this.
Next I set the pierced hole directly over the blob of paint, and pressed down rather hard.
The paint oozes up through the hole, making a perfect little pearl shaped ear-ring. Now leave it to set completely. You might try making a pearl necklet in this way too - I haven't done one yet, but I am itching to try!
I found that this technique was much tidier than trying to dot one on with my gel pen, I kept getting unruly blobs, but maybe I'm just not that handy with a gel pen, anyhow, hope it tickles!!
