My other friend Cat, is horrified at the things I mix together sometimes, but if we don't try different techniques how will we learn? How do you think the experts became experts in their field? I guess because of the cost of materials sometimes, people don't want to waste their products, which is fair enough. So I experiment on ATC (Artist Trading Card) sized samples so I don't waste a lot, but can still see if I will be successful or not.
A friend of mine (Hi Ric:) asked me to show him some samples of what it looks like when Ranger and Tom Holtz's Distress Oxides are applied to Glossy Paper and then covered in Distress Glaze. I had fun using this Technique so I decided to video my findings. It is only the second video I have ever done, so please be kind as I am learning about cameras and editing software etc. I am always open to suggestions, tips and questions as well. Click on this link to view the video.
Below are close up photos of the samples from the video and names of products I used.
