We bought some texture paste from Papermaze and I drew the lucky straw for first play with it
Along with the texture paste we bought a mask, as these are great to use for applying the paste in interesting shapes.
I chose some dark blue 12x12 card stock, as I wanted to experiment on as wide an area as possible. I then cut a smaller piece of card as a guide to show me where the middle of the page was, and to mask an area where I didn't want the paste to stick.
I then chose where my first 'splodgings' would be and placed my mask as so
I borrowed Horace's credit card, he won't notice, he rarely opens his wallet!! It was a bit big to scoop the paste with so I cut it in half ( any suggestions on how to stick it back together will be gratefully received, just on the off chance Horace decides to dust the cobwebs off his wallet this decade.)
I then began to apply the paste, thickly, to emulate the thickness of a brick. Well, maybe not quite that thick, I am prone to a little exaggeration occasionally.
Once applied I turned the card around, re applied the mask in the bottom corner, and splodged to my furry little heart's content.
To produce this.
Now we don't own a heat gun, having given it away in a bear tantrum when we decided we could no longer craft, so I needed to wait for the paste to dry. This was the ideal opportunity to read the latest Craft Stamper magazine, one of my favourite reads.
I poohtled back to the craft desk, and decided the paste looked too white, so sprayed some glimmer mists all over it.
Again, not having a heat gun I had to wait.... Goodness this is like watching paint dry!,
I haven't decided what to do with my arty splodges yet, in fact, I haven't even decided if it's all a bit of a pasty mess. I think I preferred it sans mist!!
Maybe I'll start again. Still, at least I was the first bear to play with it.
Anyone know how to remove crusty paste from my paws? Not to mention shimmery glimmery mist from my fur?
With love from the bears 🐻
