Default "Metal" embellishments from paper?

Does anyone know how to make "metal" look embellishments from paper? I think I saw one tutorial that used glossy black paper and a sanding block to get the look, but I'm wondering if anyone else makes these, and has any other tips...

What kind of embellishments are you thinking of?

You can cover chipboard with foil tape and die cut it for metallic embellishments... there are also wax-based metallic rubs that are fun to use - Inka Gold is the product that I have.

Here's a tutorial from our resources section that might give you more ideas with the foil tape:

And another one using embossing powder:

this card is a bit old ... but if you do a couple layers of embossing powder and run it through the with embossing folders it makes a nice effect. You could also cut out whatever shapes you wanted with dies too.

You can put chipboard shapes under foil tape too. Aging it with a bit of black acrylic paint can give a fun look (I'll attach a sample if I can find one - it's old but will give you an idea what I'm talking about!).

Some people have had problems with Inka Gold going moldy in the pot. There are lots of equivalent products out there - I use Rub n Buff (which comes in a little tube) and lots of people seem to love Treasure Gold.

Plain old kitchen foil can be useful - stick it to cardstock for stability and you can die cut it or use it in embossing folders. Acrylic paint and alcohol inks will both stick to it if you want to do any patina or aging effects on it.

Just had another thought on aged/pitted metal and that's to use UTEE and acrylic paint. The sample I can find a pic of happens to be done on a plastic clock frame but you could easily do this on a chipboard die cut - something like a skeleton key would look fab! A single layer of UTEE (I used silver on this) will give a sort of "orange peel" texture and if you add a bit of paint and wipe back once it's almost dry it gives a cool effect.

I have done the kitchen foil technique with great results, look great if you antique it by adding ink and them rubbing most back off.

Another thing I consider a must have in a stampers arsenal is a Krylon paint pen, I have both gold and silver. I have sharpie, as well as some other brands too but they just don't compare to the Krylon ones.

Joanne, look what I found, using black UTEE plus metallic embossing powder--how cool does this look? Takes the SU technique here even further (and dare I say it, gives Tim Holtz embellishments a run for their money

Here is a link using a soda can to make faux metal embellishments. Really very easy with outstanding results.

Just a quick update: I bought some Stampendous embossing enamel in Aged Silver and embossed a really thick coat on some very thick SU card stock, then cut a circle shape with my Big Shot and punched a hole with my Crop-a-Dile. It looks just like a metal medallion! Really love the look of the embossing enamel — I'm definitely going to experiment with more colors!

Sounds great - can we see?!

You might have fun playing with "embedded" embossing on something like that. Once you've got your medallion with the thick layer of enamel, swipe over with an anti-static bag and stamp with Versamark (a small word or something like a swirl is a good starting point) and sprinkle over a contrasting detail EP. Black or white would probably work well on your Aged Silver. Heat it and the new powder will melt and kind of "sink" into the existing surface.

I think I'm going to add it to a card soon, and I'll definitely post a link to it in my gallery! And I'll definitely try your idea angelnorth – thanks!
