Today we are happy to have Roberta Birnbaum as our guest blogger.
I love the way the blue in her paperweight seems to be floating...
check it out!
I created this butterfly paperweight with ETI resin and paint and absolutely LOVE the results!
ETI Envirotex Lite
ETI opaque pigment in blue
Heidi Swapp paper butterfly
Deco Art decoupage medium
ColorBox Surfacez™ brown ink
This cast involved 4 pourings to allow for the suspended effect of the items inside.I love how the blue paint is billowing inside the paperweight. This was achieved by blending opaque pigment with resin mix inside a mixing cup so it became 'goopy'. About 1 1/2 hours after I poured the clear resin into the mold I gently introduced the goopy concoction and gave it a quick swirl.
TIP: Always seal all paper with a decoupage medium or spray sealer like ETI spray sealer.
