Hello again!

This time I played with a very cool technique of pressing stamps into slightly melted black UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) found here. Before using stamps to make an imprint, I added a bit of colour to the black, triple UTEE coating with various mica powders. Firstly, I tested the technique on a small, wooden heart. It worked well 🙂

Next, I went for a small box and I chose to do a quick laser print transfer with citra-solv of a famous fornasetti image to decorate the top of the box. Further distressed with two shades of ink (Versacolor) and stamped, the top was treated with a few coats of satin finish. As for the bottom, all four sides were coated with UTEE, coloured with mica powders and stamped with four different stamp sets (for clear lines go with bolder designes).
