"inchies" using my Cuttlebug Techniques...

I used a combination of metallic paints and acrylic paints on these inchies...The two bottom ones use the Layered Cuttlebug Technique I designed...The two on the top were embossed and then metallic paint applied to the raised surfaces...I do this by tightly wrapping a piece of paper towel or tee shirt fabric around my finger...and sparingly added a bit of paint, dabbing off the excess...and lightly rubbing across the raised surface...I added some gold to the bird one...
Same inchies, just different lighting to better show the effects of the techniques...These really take on the look of metal, especially after adding a thin coat of sealer of your choice...I use Plaid Royal Coat Decoupage Medium...it stays on my work table...so its always handy...
