SCS WATERCOLOR TISSUE…

WAIT… this is not the same as the one I had already posted about painting WITH tissue paper… in fact this is just the reverse… with this one using your waterbed stamp pads on a piece of acrylic or the teflon sheets ( amazon) then smear your watercolors together  or not leaving white space will work too… then press your piece of tissue paper or even Kleenex over ink and let it soak thru. Then you will need to lay it aside to dry…

SCS WATERCOLOR TISSUE

SCS WATERCOLOR TISSUE this is great for creating background in which case you can glue it ( tape will not work well) to a piece of watercolor paper or just card stock…white is probably best if you want it to show up well…because tissue is so fragile it needs some kind of backing … if you wanted to use it to die cut or punch something out glueing it to card stock or w/color paper works well… BUT …you can also let it dry then you can use your IRON and butcher paper and you can iron the tissue the butcher paper… now if you also iron clothes with this iron then you want to protect your iron by using another piece of paper over it so that the waxiness of the butcher paper doesn’t get on your iron…if you have those teflon sheets you can use that also….

HINT: IF you use the butcher paper then it will be ok to cut it with the dies..however it gets harder to use the punch so the best way to do it into flip it over and punch with the white side of the butcher paper showing rather than the tissue… if you punch is old and not cutting well try punch it thru tinfoil. few times to try to sharpen the edges… but it still may not work well with a very detailed punch a solid image like balloon, heart , square etc. or any mostly solid image… should work just fine…I also do not think that you will be able to adhere it to the acetate…but you can try by just cutting a small piece and trying it…

NOW they also suggested that if you glue the tissue onto the card stock or watercolor paper ( I suggested glue on the card not on the tissue)then scrunch up the tissue as you press it down you will get more texture and then she suggests that you VERY LIGHTLY ie don’t press down too hard …rub the watermark or embossing pad over the raised parts of the tissue and sprinkle with either (my suggestion ) gold or bronze  or black embossing powder you get this wonderful CRACKLE EFFECT…. now that really excited me…. and you can do it also using the BUTCHER PAPER..

W/C crackle effect..with embossing powder

HINT: once the tissue is colored and dry …wad it up like you were going to throw it away…then iron it onto the butcher paper and again willl achieve texture that you can apply embossing pad/powder to and get those CRACKLE LINES to really show up…. OK so why are ya sittin here reading this …GO PLAY…

HINT: You can also do larger sheets of tissue and then cut it up smaller…especially if you are doing the wadding and iron on butcher paper effect….
