I really enjoyed playing with some of the new acrylic shapes from Claritystamp. Watch out for Lou Withers at 6pm and 8pm today and tomorrow at 9am, 1pm and 5pm on Hochanda as she shows you what else can be done with this fantastic form of substrate. I started by working with one of the smallest shapes to see how they work with different media.To start with I removed the protective covering from the small acrylic square with a drilled hole. I laid the Skeleton Leaf tile stencil over the square and blended Fern Green Archival ink through the apertures.
Next I dragged Pentart Heavy Body Matte Gel through the apertures over the ink and removed the stencil (which went straight into water and was thoroughly cleaned).
This wasn't my first attempt. When I first started working with the acrylic square, I decided to see how heat embossing would work and stamped the #1 outline stamp from the Skeleton leaf set onto the acrylic using Onyx Black Versafine ink and clear embossing powder. This worked fine.Next, I added some Pebeo Vitrail paint in gold through the stencil.
Followed by some Chartreuse paint.
Unfortunately, the Vitrail paints caused the heat embossed outline to lift off the acrylic. Luckily, I was able to wipe all the paint away and clean the acrylic square with hand sanitiser. I used the same acrylic square to make the pendant, so don't be afraid to experiment, the acrylic shapes will take quite a lot of punishment.
