Hello friends. Cracked glass is an old technique that I wanted to share with you. After colouring these images out, cracked glass seemed to be appropriate to bring out the bright colours. Four images were coloured and made into cards and I got them mailed out for my American family and friends, who celebrate Thanksgiving in a couple of days. You will notice there are no embellishments because I wanted to make them mailable. Image was coloured with Copic markers.
You will notice white embossing powder that didn’t quite melt in some of the photos. For some reason, the first image turned out that way, but the other three worked out beautifully as seen in this final photo.
I hope you are inspired to try out this oldie, but goodie, technique.
Supplies: coloured image, VersaMark, Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel, heat gun
Cover your image with VersaMark
Cover your VersaMarked image with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.
With your heat gun, melt your embossing powder. Repeat again by covering with VersaMark and add embossing powder and use heat gun so that there are three layers completed. The first layer will be bumpy–that’s normal.
After covering your image with three layers of embossing powder your coverage will be nice and smooth.
Put image into your freezer for ten minutes.
When you take out your image from the freezer, bend your image and allow it to crack all over.
If you look closely you will see that the image is cracked.
