More Artiscape and a question answered


Here is a small section of our small table at Artiscape. At the Table on Saturday I had time to color in a few of Elaine's sample B&W laminated images with Copic markers. They turned out so bright.
The Question of the day is from Susan Weber who asks if there is anything like the silk paint paint Stampa Rosa used to make.
Not that I have seen Susan but you could create a similar product for yourself by trying one of these formulas for yourself.
Diamond Glaze formula (Check my book Greeting Card Magic)
to 2 tablespoons of DG add 1 tablespoon of water. Add 6-10 drops of Die Reinker.
add a small amount of Pearl Ex less than a 1/4 teaspoon. shake or mix well paint on with a small brush. If it feels too thin add a bit more DG.
OR
Acrylic ink formula
Add equal parts of Acrylic ink(like Doc Martens) to DG or Matte Medium (for a more matte finish. Paint on with a small brush.
