Very nice colours are good love the way you have combined it all good luck In the clarify challenge xx
Hi Rolf, love how the colours you have chosen blend so well together to showcase the 'Kasha' Stamp. Wishing you success in this month's Clarity Challenge. ;~}
Thank you!I gave Kasha a Dress out of gilding flakes and for the outer frame I used the "Caught in Crystal-technique, which I love very much at the moment.
Beautiful, lush and so rich looking. Thanks for entering the Challenge Rolf and good luck.
Beautiful background Rolf, it looks like an exotic marble. Perfect complement for the Gold frame and elegant lady. Good luck in the challenge x
Lovely background Rolf, really complements your frame and Kasha. Thanks for entering this month's challenge. Good luck! x
Thank you all very much.
This is lovely. What is the 'caught in crystal technique?', is this how you created the lovely background?
Hello Karen,thanks! With this technique you use a transparent foil. First I dropped lacquer in circles on it. Then I dropped ink on and between the fresh lacquer. I used inkabilities (only two or three different colours). If you want you can put a little perfect pearls as well on everything. At last you cover it with crumpled tissue paper.Then you need a lot of patience. I let it dry for three full days!!!If you turn it around it looks like glass. I like this effect very much.
Thanks. I'll have a go at that.
The background is absolutely gorgeous, and thanks for sharing how you did it. This is something I definitely want to try. Love the rich autumnal colours. Thanks for entering the Clarity challenge, and good luck. Xxx
Hello Karen and Barbara,thanks for the compliments! I forgot something: After covering it up with the tissue paper I took three crumpled sheets of kitchen roll and pressed lightly over it. So the ink should soak into your tissue paper. (If there are white spots you can definitely use an ink drop to fill it) You can use gloves as well because it´s a bit messy but it´s absolutely worth it. You can cut it with dies (don´t use delicate ones) If everything is dry you can glue it on a white card so the colours will come out better. xxx
This is a stunner - and an introduction to a new technique, too! Thanks for sharing and good luck in the challenge.
Hi Jomada-Dawn,thank you so much for your compliment but I´m not the innovator of this technique. And I´m not sure if you better use alcohol or non-alcohol inks. I only had some Inkabilities here from Clarity but I was happy with the result.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment, each one is read and greatly appreciated xx
