Painting with Gilding Wax.
Good Morning everyone ! Today is my first post for the Creative Expressions Design Team .
I am delighted and very excited to be working for this wonderful company and am looking forward to using some of their products to create some interesting pieces .I Hope that you will enjoy finding out about my ideas .
Today I will share with you a card that I made using only gilding waxes as colouring agents . I have used filing waxes in the normal way to colour the edges of the base card by rubbing Cast Bronze around the edges . I then used several waxes in a random fashion over embossed black card . I also rubbed Cast Bronze wax over a piece of card that I stamped a frame and quote onto . So far , quite normal . However I then decided to use the waxes as paints so that the colours all coordinated .
Once the wax paint has dried the whole card can be assembled as shown .
I used the following items from Creative Expressions to create this card ; Stamp set by John Lockwood - Rosebud Elements .Embossing Folder - Fine Finials . Gilding Waxes - Cast Bronze , Deep Red , Pewter , Vintage Golden Green and Enchanted Gold . Crochet ribbon and Vintage Black Button .
I'll be posting regularly for Creative Expressions so I'll be back again next Tuesday .
