All the latest buzz is about Claudine Hellmuth's fabby new tutorial on You Tube. Using Ranger Metallic Acrylic Paint Daubers as a transfer medium! If you haven't checked the demo out yet, here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9mL5hk6ieQ
Ok, the demo is great, but I can mess up just about any transfer....
I don't have any of the Ranger Paint Daubers, but I do have some cheapo metallic acrylic paint! I decided to give it a try......what the heck!
I slathered on some Folk Art Pearl White acrylic paint over a small laminate sample. I tore out a little girl image from Lisa's Altered Art and slapped that baby down over the paint. I gently burnished the image and then let it dry. I then ran some cold water over the image and rubbed off the paper (and a little of the paint around the image)
Well, I have to say that I want to kiss Claudine Hellmuth! (This would be followed by legal action and a possible restraining order.....good thing she lives in another state......) Not only did the transfer work, but it's about the best transfer I have ever done!!!
I LOVE this technique and I am almost crying because I can now do a good transfer with very simple ingredients!!
Life is good............
Here she is:
Some of my paint peeled off of the laminate sample, but I like it! :)
