Hi everyone! Wendy Price here and today I’m going to be sharing a tutorial for stenciling with paste on acrylic.
Place a generous amount of paste on your paste spreader and spread the paste over your stencil. While the paste is still wet, peel off the tape. Lift off the stencil and apply glitter to the wet paste. Tap off the extra glitter. The glitter will stick to the acrylic in places you don’t want it because of static, but thats ok for now. Allow your paste to dry on the acrylic. When it is dry, take a dry paint brush and brush off the extra glitter. All that is let to do is decorate the card!
To add a sentiment or message inside the card without having it show through the acrylic, we’re going to adhere a card within the card. I created a cardbase 1/4 inch smaller than the acrylic card base. Adhere to the inside of the acrylic card base with Zip Dry. Here you can see a peek at the sentiment inside the card. I stamped the amaryllis in Memento Pear Tart on the corner and added a sentiment.
And here is another closeup of the amaryllis and stenciled background on the front of the card. That Crystal Glitter is absolutely sparkly and gorgeous in person!
