ColourArte's Monthy challenge - Vivid Ultra Metallic Paints
I used my Gel Press® plate along with some acrylic paints, Vivid Metallics and some stencils to create my art journal page.
But today I thought I would show you how I use my embossing tool, which I haven't used to emboss anything in over 10 years at least ( it always hurt my hand ) BUT I have used this tool soooo much in painting! You can see here I removed the cap from the Vivid bottle ( I was cleaning it ) and when I tested to see if the passage was open, well, some paint came out so I grabbed my tool and scooped it up.
It was very easy to do some fine outlining this way. Now I could use a paintbrush but I'm weird like that, lol And I should note that I applied the Blue Sky Metallic paint through the stencil with a palette brush because I wanted to play up it's dimensionality.
I also like to squirt out a portion of paint when I have big areas to cover.
And then spread it out using the tool. You can tell from the tool that I really do use it a lot in this capacity...no lie, it's one of my most reached for tools.
A little close up picture of the Metallics but the picture doesn't do them justice.
