How-To Video: Pearlized Resist

Hey, folks!

I am spending today catching up on things and thought I would pop in to share some of the fun I had last week on the Hero Arts blog in case you missed it.  And, yep, there is a video…

The week was about the resist technique.  If you aren’t familiar with traditional or embossed resist (just two of many that there are), here are the basics…

Traditional Resist = Glossy Paper + Stamping with Ink that Resists (such as Versamark) + Most Dye/Chalk Inks on Top

Embossed Resist = Any Paper + Heat Embossed Image + Most Dye/Chalk/Pigment/Paint Inks on Top

So, first up?  Traditional resist.  If you are interested in the supplies or how-tos, click on the link below the photo…

Not sure what is up with all the purple I have been using.  Maybe it is the teenage girls around here rubbing off on me. :)

Off to do email.  Happy Monday…

    I just LOVE that you never use patterned paper on your cards or layouts because you are so incredibly talented and create your own with stamps and embossing folders. I can’t get enough of these resist techiques. So cool and fun!! I’m always looking forward to your videos.

    Just viewed one of your videos for the first time and I must say, I WILL BE BACK! You don’t mess around…you get right to the point. I can see why you are in demand by so many companies, to represent them and their products. Oh, BTW, your technique was terrific too!
