With the release of their newest Stencil 1 Book, Stencil 1 Stationery, I thought it the best time to finally share my glitter stencil technique. With a little bit of modeling paste, glass glitter and a beautiful stencil image...gorgeous, glittery, crafty goodness!
stencil (brass/metal will also work), German Glass Glitter in Silver 100 grit, some modeling paste:
To start, tape the stencil to the front of the card with masking tape.
So next up, apply the paste to the card with the palette knife. Use a pretty fair amount of paste and apply in a cake frosting type manner. You want to use a lot of paste because you don't want to have to run the knife over the stencil too many times. You want to get a nice, even layer of paste in the image and the more times you run the knife over the top, trying to make it "perfect", the more risk you run of pushing the pasted under the stencil and making the edges blurry.
This one didn't come out as smoothly as I would have liked..but you can always fix these during the glittering process..
Now let's cover with glitter!!!
