Tim Holtz Online Card Class–Creative Chemistry 101 Day 8


Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101

This was one of my favorite days of Creative Chemistry, lots of fun to be had!  Delving into crackle paint, stains, and dabber paint!

  • Crackle Paint Resist Technique – very cool, you can get a lot of looks out of this one depending on which color of crackle paint you use.  I can see this being useful for landscape scenes with old barns and fencing, distressed backgrounds, or really for anything that needs a good crackle.
  • Paint Dabber Resist Technique – this one is one of my favorites too, I love this ghostly look that white paint gives on top of the stains.  I don’t have any dabbers, so I just brushed on some white acrylic paint instead.
  • Shattered Stains Technique – how many times can I say ‘cool’ in a post??  But for real you guys, this one is way cool.  Crackle + Stains = really awesome look.
