So what is all this fuss about distressing? It’s nothing to actually stress about because we have all sorts of products and technique to help achieve the distressed look on your projects.
Spoonful of Rust is a great textural mix of embossing powders and elements that can be used with Fran’s great Encrusted Jewel Technique.
Take a look at how Fran found this technique from a mishap during the CHA convention one year.
You can really put the rust factor on over drive when added as the final touches with the line of Media Fluid Acrylic paints from our partners at DecoArt. To see this great technique go to Monday’s post for Andy Skinner’s video on stamping and painting a rusty finish. Tuesday and Wednesday two guest bloggers, Tracy Weinzapfel and Terry Sproul created fabulous projects using Andy’s technique. Thursday you can see just how great adding stenciling to the rust technique can be.
So many great reasons to try out this technique, but there is one more reason you might want to have a go with this technique!
