Frosty Acrylics



This is a technique whereby you can create a frosty look on your acrylic projects. I've used this technique on one of my Clear Scraps DT project. All you need are some white acrylic paint, foam brushes and Fun Flocks.
Simply just apply some white acrylic paint with your foam brushes using the dabbing motion. (Tip: Make sure that the consistency of the acrylic paint is thick and not too watery). You can dab on all the edges and even use some snowflake die cuts to mask on your acrylic projects. I've also use some snowflake stamps and the white acrylic paint to stamp all over my project. Add some Stickles or glitters to it for more shinny and frosted look.
Secondly, you can apply some Stampendous Fun Flocks to most of your embellishment or even your photograph on your project. This will create some fun piled up snow on your embellishment.
Thirdly, you could use white vellum to create some embellishment for your frosty page. Detailed them with a white gel pen and silver glitters.
These techniques are just some very simple and easy touches that you could use to create your one of a kind frosty acrylic projects. Use them on clear ornaments, clear candle holders, clear layouts, clear cards and etc. The possibilities are just endless. Try it!
I'll be posting my completed project using these techniques tomorrow. Check it out.
