Hello all, Alison here from Words and Pictures, and I've been playing with the oh-so-fabulous new White Fire Fresco Finish paint from PaperArtsy.
I've loved the White Fire colour of Treasure Gold right from the start of my crafting, and it remains my go-to gilding wax... and now I can have it in paint form - fully metallic with a fabulous sheen.
It's also one of the translucent Frescos so you can use it over colour to add a fabulous sheen, or add several coats for more coverage.
I used two ATC sized pieces of card and ran them through the BigShot with the Tim Holtz Compass embossing folder, and then gave them a rough coat of the White Fire paint. You can still see the card coming through in places, but even so the shimmer is fabulous.
I spritzed with some of the blue and green Distress Sprays, as well as adding some Ground Espresso. I let the ink pool and in places spritzed it with water to get it to move more.
I added some more burnishing with Sepia and Jet Black Archival inks, just sweeping them over the raised texture in places.
The words were cut in plain white card using the Adventure Words Thinlits. Once cut, I gave them a coat of the White Gold and then burnished with the Archival inks again.
They're layered over some torn book pages, and I added some vintage pen nibs to record the journey!
I added a bit of text stamping for extra detail and interest.
That's about it - a simple make, just a way to experiment with the White Gold Fresco paint really... and I can highly recommend it!
There's another project coming your way here in the next few weeks using the same paint, and if I weren't away from my craft table I'd probably still be playing with it now!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I'll see you again soon.
