Lightbulb Re: Instructions for Polished Stone Technique

Connie,

Try these instructions...

Donna


Polished Stone Technique

Work in a well-ventilated area, preferably outside.
1. Put Denatured Alcohol on a cotton ball. Moisten it, but don't soak it.
2. Dot your cotton ball with 3 to 4 drops re-inker.
3. Shake your leafing pen and press the tip down on your glossy cardstock letting the ink puddle out. Make 3 to 4 little globs per quarter sheet.
4. QUICKLY "slam" your cotton ball on top of the blobs of pen. Strike the paper over and over, making the leafing ink "float" in the alcohol dye. If the leafing ink doesn't "float" but dries as spots, you didn't use enough alcohol. Try again. (I must stress the QUICKLY! You don't want to give the leafing ink time to soak into the paper.)
5. You want the colors to overlap and blend. If you "work" the ink too much, it can start to look muddy, but you want to cover the surface of the paper. After "whacking" you can gently twist your cotton ball for a more blended look.
6. Change the cotton if you are changing colors. However, You can get interesting results from re-wetting your used cotton ball.
7. Let the piece dry before touching. You can move it by gripping the edge of the paper. I like to wait at least 24 hours before stamping on it. Then I like to use Black ink and use black embossing powder to make the image "pop" off the page yet showing the colors of marbleized design.

* You can use the metallic re-inkers instead of the Zig paint pen but you may have to seal the finished piece with a light misting of Krylon fixative. You could also just emboss it with a sprinkling of clear embossing powder.
* You can use isopropyl alcohol instead of denatured alcohol, but be sure to seal it with a fine mist of Krylon sealer.
* You can brayer a piece of glossy white with black ink to make black glossy paper and then do the polished stone technique on top to have a different effect.

Wink What's a leafing pen?

Made by Krylon, a leafing pen comes in several colors, probably
the most popular being gold. Take a look at the following URL
to see one.

Default here is what I have with COLOR COMBOS

Polished Stone Technique



Place a cotton ball in a clothespin. Plastic won’t absorb the ink, but wood ones work too. Apply rubbing alcohol to the cotton ball (the cotton ball should not be soaking wet, just damp), then place about 3 drops from any reinker (48 colors to choose from) on the damp cotton ball. Put one color to the right of the ball and one to the left. Put a “stripe” of Ultimate metallic or Encore re-inker between the two colors, and dab onto

glossy card stock. You can also swirl inked cotton ball on the glossy card stock for a different effect. Have fun!!

Here is a list of Polished Stone Combos :

1. Only Orange/Really Rust
2. Mint Melody/Garden Green/Goldrush (looks like real marble)
3. Only Orange/Really Rust/Baroque Burgundy w/Gold
4. More Mustard/Barely Banana/Gold (very nice)
5. Old Olive/Mellow Moss
6. Creamy Caramel/Close to Cocoa
7. Real Red/Summer Sun
8. Mauve Mist/Sage Shadow
9. Lavender Lace/Almost Amethyst/Platinum (very nice)
10. Summer Sun/Mellow Moss
11. Mauve Mist/Mellow Moss
12. Brocade Blue/Marvelous Magenta/Gold
13. Baroque Burgundy/Mauve Mist/Silver (beautiful)
14. Forest Foliage/Creamy Caramel/Platinum (looks like real marble)
15. Forest Foliage/Baroque Burgundy
16. Bliss Blue/Green Galore/YoYo Yellow
17. Night of Navy/Marvelous Magenta (this one was REALLY dark)
18. YoYo Yellow/Tempting Turquoise
19. Real Red/Eggplant Envy (gorgeous)
20. Mellow Moss/Bliss Blue
21. Bliss Blue/Mellow Moss
22. Pretty in Pink/Going Gray/Silver (very nice)
23. Eggplant Envy/Real Red/Goldrush (gorgeous)
24. Summer sun / cameo coral
25. Cameo coral / close to cocoa / black (goes good with vintage stamps)
26. Lovely lilac / taken with teal / brilliant blue

Question

Can you please explain why rubbing alcohol needs a sealer? And, where do you get denatured alcohol. Thanks!!
