Pearl Ex™ - Heated Pearls
by Beate Johns
Create a marble looking background with Pearl Ex™ powder and white school glue.
- White school glue
- Pearl Ex®
- Stipple brush
- Embossing heat tool
- Glossy cardstock (I used black for this tutorial. You can use white as well.)
Squeeze a good amount of glue in the center of the glossy cardstock.
Spread glue over the cardstock with the stipple brush.
Drop small amounts of Pearl Ex™ on the glue-covered cardstock. Repeat with another color or more. I used Aztec Gold and Super Russet.
Stipple until the Pearl Ex is evenly distributed on the cardstock.
HINT: When finished, put the stipple brush in water or rinse immediately to prevent the glue from drying in the bristles.
Heat glue mixture with heat tool. Bubbles will form. Once it doesn't bubble anymore, the background is done.
Finish your card.
Use white glossy cardstock for a completely different look, or brayer white glossy cardstock with any color you would like. Experiment. Have fun!
