|5 x 7 journal cover with foil|
I cannot remember where I read about someone covering their journal cover with heavy duty aluminum foil. I sure wish I could find the reference again. But hubby and I were sitting on the screen porch yesterday listening to the PBS "story a day" and I brought out a piece and using a small clockmaker's tool I picked up for 25 cents, I did some Zentangle® patterns on the foil. (With a soft magazine underneath). Probably an old ball point pen would work too.
The thing I couldn't remember was what the technique called to do next…somehow color was added to the foil that highlighted the design. I "think" they used alcohol inks which I don't have. So I will need to experiment more with this. I ended up sprinkling the foil with "Brusho" which is fine paint powder that explodes into action when you spritz it with water. Then when dry I sprayed it with clear acrylic to hopefully waterproof it. Added some of my home made "washi" tape just for a little more pizzaz.
I need a tutorial on Brusho. Anyone know where to find one?
