Welcome Back

This month the theme for November 2009, for The Virtual Crafting Challenge is;

Lacquers & Glazes

Crystal Lacquers

Crystal Lacquer is sold by various companies. It can be used as a dimensional glue, or on top of images to create a 3D glass bead style of effect.

  • Mix with a dry mica product to enable you to use it on a wider selection of surfaces
  • Use on top of stamped coloured images to give a dimension to the finished image
  • Use coloured lacquers to colour stamped images
  • Use to create embellishments for your cards

Glazes

You can create clear or coloured glazes to change the tone or appearance of your original images

  • Use a sepia glaze to give a vintage style to your projects
  • Use clear glazes to add shine to colours or images
  • Mix colour with your glaze for a whole new look.

 

The idea behind this challenge is to encourage you to use long forgotten products from you cupboard, or to try new ways with them. Try a product for the first time and see if you like it. There is no pressure to create a finished piece at the end of the month, more to encourage you to experiment and play with your products.
