Faux Tarnished Silver
by Shelly Hickox
Create a faux tarnished look with embossing powder.
- Silver Embossing Powder
- Clear Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE)
- Embossing Ink
- Chipboard Die Cut Shape
- Heat Gun
Ink chipboard shape with embossing ink and cover with silver embossing powder.
Heat embossing powder until it melts. Let cool.
Cover frame again with embossing ink, applying it lightly and randomly. Coat with UTEE, being sure to leave some areas uncovered.
Heat UTEE until it melts. The larger chunks of UTEE will disperse the silver embossing, creating a mottled effect that looks like tarnished silver. If not enough silver is showing, you can repeat steps 1-3 until desired effect is achieved.
