I made this flourish for my Steampunk page.
Step 1 - gather your supplies
silicone mould of choice
Anna Griffin Embossing Paste- White Finish
In this case I used Finnabair Art ingredients Mica Powder - Rust
My trusty spatula !
I scooped up a generous dollop of Embossing paste and added some of the Mica Powder-
A little goes a long way.
I wasn't totally sure how the colour would turn out but it I knew it would be in the brown tones which I needed for my page
Mix it well
It looked weird at first but it dried to a beautiful chocolatey colour which suited me perfectly
Swipe the paste across the silicone mould as one does for texture paste and stencils.
Be careful not to have too much over the edges of the pattern.
I left it overnight to dry properly.
Gently remove from the mould
when you take it out it is quite flexible
I found I needed to tidy up some of the edges with a scalpel.
and there you have it
There is quite a range of silicone moulds available , feathers, leaves, lace etc.
Here is a link from the store I bought my supplies from which shows in much greater detail all the great things you can do with this technique.
hope you have enjoyed
